What do you call teams in your head

Does anyone think of Ag2R, FdJ in the letter names of French rather than of their native tongue (or that they are likely to use Italian numerals for Q36.5)?

I'll assume that no-one thinks of UAE in the Arabic name (if there is one) of the Latin alphabet letters.


I tend to think of Ag2R as A2R : I suspect that I will mentally abridge Q36.5 to Q3

Only rarely do I have a special name in my head.
Sometimes it is about the sponsor name, other times based on how they look.
My color vision is poor with red and green, a team could be bright pink, and it is just gray easy to overlook.
I like jersey's I can pick out, patterns being the best if they are scaled up. The Big M is great but I don't think of them as The Big M


Past and present listed below

Movie Star
Be Bop, a lu she bop
(from their name just for that one those two seasons with that one sponsor, good luck guessing it)
Leaky Gas
Orange
Light Blue
Dark Blue
Shoulder X

First name only, not very historical since noob.
Just some variations like
Ag2r = Citroën
Quickstep oftentimes QS.
DSM = BDSM (because the boss seriously sounded like he wants 24/7 kinda style)

And then it's just some internal "sounds";
With UAE it's usually no name but some internal remark of hate/disgust like angry growling or pouting.
(2021 QS also came with swooning so no need for a name there either. Because wolves)
