I do mine by base and number.
My first base (XCOM Euro) will have my Alpha Team.
They will go from Alpha Leader through to Alpha 10. It is easy from there. Alpha Leader is the highest rank and holds a Blaster Luncher, Alpha 2 is my heavy weapons expert with a Heavy Plasma, Alpha 3 is my sniper with a Laser Rifle and then Alpha 4 is my scout with a Plasma or Laser Pistol in one hand and a Stun-rod in the other. Then my 5 and 8 are heavy weapons experts, 6 and 9 are snipers and 7 and 10 are scouts, all outfitted as above.
So I have three Heavy Weapons Experts, Scout and Sniper teams supported by my Blaster Laucher wielding leader and usually a Fussion Launcher HWP.
This is my basic outfit for strike teams for one, two or three bases with Skyrangers as the only transport. Once I have psi my teams diversify and I usually move a sniper to support team one and have two psi capable soldiers sit back with my leader. And of course gaining Avengers means I can carry larger teams, so they expand again and are given greater HWP support.
I also name my next squads in the accepted Phonetic Alphabet order, that being Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta and so on.
And I like to change it before Cydonia so that I have each individual squad in the level under the banner of Alpah, Bravo, Chalie and Delta. All squads are also given
their own Blaster Bomb support by this point. I find it fun to set up, but I can waste hours doing nothing.
