One thought on “A Collection of Collective Nouns!

  1. It’s so nice to see this list. Recently, I was wondering what the collective noun for vampires was, so I decided it was a “torture of vampires.”
    Turns out pack, coven, brood, stuff like that are typical for vampire grouping nouns. But I’m sticking with torture.
