+265 (yeas:501 nays:236)
True Companions actually means this trope, has a lot of historical use.
+130 (yeas:298 nays:168)
Unshakable Fellowship Quick, memorable, and gets the point across very effectively.
+100 (yeas:202 nays:102)
Friends Like Family: Basically gives the trope definition in three words.
+66 (yeas:207 nays:141)
Trusted Comrades actually means this trope
+48 (yeas:172 nays:124)
Fellowship - Clear, concise, has Tolkien connotations but has other uses, describes the trope well
+36 (yeas:113 nays:77)
Thicker Than Blood - A phrase for a bond that goes beyond simple friendship and transcends even the relationship of blood relatives.
+25 (yeas:119 nays:94)
Stalwart Companions—Is in use, concise and clear, and "companions" doesn't have the connotations that "crew" can have.
-6 (yeas:61 nays:67)
Camaraderie Short and catchy, describes comradeship and a spirit of trust.
-5 (yeas:13 nays:18)
All For One - so well-recognised, it's used for the trope image and its caption, and I find it unlikely that there's a single person who sees this and doesn't immediately think "And One For All"
-6 (yeas:2 nays:8)
Ignore
-7 (yeas:3 nays:10)
duplicate; the add crowner option is not the reply box
-10 (yeas:37 nays:47)
-9 (yeas:13 nays:22)
Like Family - Simple and accurate, already a redirect
-9 (yeas:3 nays:12)
The best new title would be "Band of Brothers", which already exists.

How many names for snow do you need?
-10 (yeas:8 nays:18)
Tight Knit Crew: Crew, because it denotes a group of people with a common goal, and tight knit because, well they are.
-13 (yeas:44 nays:57)
Family Of Friends — Simple but descriptive. The casual visitor should be able to pick up on the trope's meaning right away.
-11 (yeas:13 nays:24)
Constant Companions - alliterative appeal, "constant" suggests they're always around each other, also means steadfast and "to stand together" in Latin.
-11 (yeas:3 nays:14)
Merge with Band of Brothers.
-14 (yeas:71 nays:85)
Coterie- Group of people who identifiy closely, or an exclusive group. Describes the trope well, and has few other meanings.
-12 (yeas:25 nays:37)
Family of Choice — established term for "Those people I feel like family about but who I'm not related to by blood." fairly widespread use in Real Life.
-12 (yeas:30 nays:42)
-12 (yeas:2 nays:14)
The Them - A Good Omens reference, the name of a group of friends who stood together at the end of the world.
-13 (yeas:56 nays:69)
Kith has a definition encompassing both friends and family(and an etymology favoring the latter) and is out of use enough that a slight stretching of the connotations should go unnoticed. Should also be a nigh-perfect drop-in replacement.
-13 (yeas:9 nays:22)
Duplicate.
-13 (yeas:2 nays:15)
How about the title "Family is More than Blood"
-16 (yeas:38 nays:54)
Friends Beyond Measure — Clear and concise. Demonstrates the concept well in only three words. Not attached to any particular fandom, and isn't a made-up word, nor an obscure word.
-14 (yeas:8 nays:22)
Closer Than Family - Implies staying together without blood relation.
-14 (yeas:1 nays:15)
The add crowner option is not the reply box.

Inseparable Comrades - Covers the entire meaning.
-16 (yeas:19 nays:35)
Ohana- Has mainstream recognization, keeps the format of the old trope while being less esoteric and fits the definition theme wise. Already an existing redirect for Nakama
-16 (yeas:3 nays:19)
Brothers From Another Mother — Comes from a ready-existing phrase usually detailing a good friend/friends as close to you as a brother (or sister), but not related to you in any way, which describes Nakama in a nutshell. The name itself is also quite memorable and catchy, mostly due to how well it rhymes.
-17 (yeas:25 nays:42)
In All But Blood: ElfQuest reference. Describes the trope effectively enough.
-17 (yeas:0 nays:17)
The add crowner option is not the reply box.
-17 (yeas:4 nays:21)
The N Musketeers: Since they're the best example of the trope, and anyone can put in a number for N...
-17 (yeas:0 nays:17)
I'd like to see a new title that has the word "brothers" or "brotherhood" included (for obvious reasons).

I never saw the movie or read the book, but would "Ya Ya Sisterhood" work, too?
-18 (yeas:266 nays:284)

Ohana - Already a redirect

Tight Knit Friends: Describes the trope accurately
-21 (yeas:14 nays:35)

The Ties That Bind — Also refers to WHAT keeps these people together.
-29 (yeas:6 nays:35)

-33 (yeas:15 nays:48)

Shoulder Soldiers — catchy (if not hard to say), and explains it pretty well
-38 (yeas:5 nays:43)
You Mess With Me You Mess With All Of Us, because it shows how deeply the people in this trope care about each other.
-41 (yeas:26 nays:67)
True Trusted Unshakable Framrademigohanakamadiereesh beyond Measure -

PRO: it's a little bit of everything. Tons of prior use. See Google Results here

-41 (yeas:8 nays:49)
-39 (yeas:17 nays:56)
Nothing's Able to Kill A Mateship-Alliance - the Just for Fun (with acronyms) equivalent. I'll admit, I screwed up with the last two letters, but still. (The last was supposed to be "Alliance", with the "M" standing for an adjective for the last "A")
-42 (yeas:5 nays:47)
More Than Friends — Well, they are. Additional connotation is a plus.

Ducks Fly Together — Referential
-45 (yeas:9 nays:54)
Brohana—Well, if Friendmigo is on here, we might as well give its cooler cousin a chance! (For what it's worth, "ohana" means "family" in Hawaiian and was used to describe this trope in Lilo & Stitch, and is currently a redirect.)
-47 (yeas:24 nays:71)
Friendmigo - Just made it up a few days ago. Sounds awesome but doesn't clearly describe trope.
-47 (yeas:3 nays:50)
One of Us — honestly fits this trope better than the one that already inhabits it.
