BTS fans, known as the A.R.M.Y. fandom, before a concert.

Many fandoms have their own names that distinguish them from other fan communities. These names are popular with singers, music bands, films, television shows, books, games, sports teams, and celebrities. Some of the terms are coined by fans while others are created by celebrities themselves.

The trend of giving a name to a fandom became more popular in the beginning of the 21st century with the invention of social media, although such names were used much earlier. Examples of fandoms include the Sherlockians (fans of Sherlock Holmes) and Beatlemaniacs (fans of the Beatles).[1][2]
