I know the MV standard is to change the party name by displaying the name of the actor in the leader position (Harold's party becoming Therese's party if Therese is the party leader, etc), but is there any way to have a completely unique party name based on who's leading?

For example, Harold being the party leader sets the party name as "Bat Busters", Therese being the party leader changes it to "Therese's Team", Marsha being the leader changes it to "Marsha and Friends", etc.

Any help would be appreciated!

You'll have to write a little plugin, and I think the easiest way to do it is using a switch statement. So take this:
Code:
Game_Party.prototype.name = function() {
    var numBattleMembers = this.battleMembers().length;
    if (numBattleMembers === 0) {
        return '';
    } else if (numBattleMembers === 1) {
        return this.leader().name();
    }
   var name;
    switch ($gameParty.leader().actorId())
    {
        case 1:
            name="Bat Busters";
            break;
        case 2:
            name="Therese's Team";
            break;
        case 3:
            name="Marsha and Friends";
            break;
        default:
            name=TextManager.partyName.format(this.leader().name());
            break;
    }
    return name;
};
You'll copy and paste that into a text editor, save it as a *.js file in your plugins folder, and add it in the plugin manager.

For each case, you'll put the number of the actor ID, then set the name equal to whatever their party name should be. You can add as many as you like. Anything you don't specify will default to...the default.

Hello welcome!

Try this:
JavaScript:
/*:
 * @plugindesc Custom PartyName (On Battle)
 * @author DevWithCoffee
 *
 * @help To customize the team name according to the leader
 * include the meta tag "partyname" in the note field.
 * If an actor becomes the leader and no team name is
 * defined, the default will be displayed.
 *
 * Example:
 * <partyname: %1' team>
 * <partyname: %1's best friend>
 */

Game_Party.prototype.name = function() {
	var numBattleMembers = this.battleMembers().length;
	if (numBattleMembers === 0) {
		return '';
	} else if (numBattleMembers === 1) {
		return this.leader().name();
	} else {
		var partyname = $gameParty.leader().actor().meta.partyname;
		console.log(typeof(partyname));
		if (partyname && typeof(partyname) == "string") {
			/*Meta Tag*/
			return partyname.format(this.leader().name());
		} else {
			/*Default*/
			return TextManager.partyName.format(this.leader().name());
		}
	}
};

I've finished (most of) the sprites for two of my main characters, Ashlyn and Lizzabelle. And I've already drawn actual artwork of Lizzabelle and Suki months ago. I can't wait to show some of my stuff. I'm hesitant because their outfits aren't my own original design, which must be changed before I get too serious with this.
Heh, um. I've spent $1500~ so far for my game. Most of that went into purchasing some software I need, as well as some commissions. But still, I didn't realize I had spent so much since the beginning of October.

Do not trust me with money, lol.
Working on my first ideas for a tileset... I really don't know if anyone would like or even want my style.

Plus-size sprite continues! Front and back views done, or at least mostly there depending on if there's any more work you all think she needs. Once I get her done I can get working on her masculine counterpart:
