What comes in a group of 5?

I have five student tables, and I want to give each of them a cute name, rather than just numbering 1-5, but I can't seem to think of fun ideas for names! It's 4th grade, so we're studying CA history, but I was thinking of doing something a little more personal. If it was a group of 4, I'd name each table after a different Beatles member! Any ideas?

basketball: forward 1, forward 2, center, guard 1, guard 2. 5 fingers or toes. (Where is Thumbkin), thumb, pointer, tall man, ring man, pinkie. That's a little lame for 4th grade & tall man, might cause some issues. Top 5 movies or songs? I admit it, no good ideas here.

Five boroughs would work here in NY but kinda random for CA...
I work in a parochial religious school so I could do 5 books of the bible too. But that totally wouldn't fly anywhere else.

I'd probably just do something that there are more than five of and just leave some out.

I named my writing groups after candy bars. It's a kick to hear high school seniors say, "Ooh, I'm in Snickers!"
