I found a poster of collective nouns for supernatural and mythical sorts of creatures, though some are real now. It was supposedly from Wondermark, with David Malki as the only person’s name on it, without clear indication as to how he is associated with it all. However, I needed the information in text, and in a table, not a small graphic. So with a little formulaic help from Excel, I typed out a minimal amount of text and let Excel create the rest for me.
Below is a table of supernatural collective nouns, in text and alphabetical order for all the creatures, unlike the poster that grouped them so you’d have to know in which group something belonged to find it properly. It’s just easier in pure alphabetical order for them all.
There are some pretty cool collective nouns in this group, btw! My top 3 are:
- An audacity of gargoyles
- A supremacy of dinosaurs (a term you can use quite often)
- An emancipation of centaurs.
What are your favourites?
Anything I missed?
