    Wouldn't something like "The Gamblers" be a tad better ?

    I can think of ten names better than the Pelicans. I do like the overall design of the logo however.

    Good news is Charlotte will get to have the Hornets name back.

    Redskins is a cool name, .. but how do Maryland fans feel about "Turtles"?

    I think it might be too similar to the Atlanta Hawks for the NBA to seriously consider it, but I like the name.

    Best-worst team name ever still goes to the Butte Pirates in my book. But, yeah, Pelicans is not good.

    Does that rhyme with cute, or cut?

    'Cute'. I think they did it just for the tshirts.

    Well, they'd have to sign Bobby Boucher ;)

    I'd marry her just because she's hot (that is if that's her in her avatar), and she's a Cowboys fan.

    I think it was a name used before from one of the New Orleans area teams.

    Buck up and say you like it people. We are quietly hoping to grab that Hornets name and bring it back to Charlotte.

    That is a very strange name to pick. NO is a cool place to go visit for a weekend, lots of great food and entertainment.

    I wonder if these names ever came into play:
    Crawfish-Crayfish or Crawdads
    The New Orleans Bourbon's-kinda dumb, I know
    Blues - but I guess it is copyrighted from St Louis
    Cajuns or Creole'
    New Orleans Parishes'

    There really isn't a lot of good names left for them to use, but something has to be better than Pelicans.

    I agree with someone above, go get the name Jazz back from Utah :)

    pretty sure she has said before that is her, and if this weren't a family forum I thought of three responses the instant I saw his post that would have been fitting lol

    I think these guys win in the bad name department. Haha. But they seem to have a lot of fun with it and are one of the most successful Double A teams. Haha

    I don't think it's that bad, but then that's probably just because I don't think they should have kept the Hornets name in the first place. These teams should leave their team name and logos behind and get something new when they move, like the Browns/Ravens and Thunder did.

    Just when I thought you were the hottest Canadian chick ever, you blow it.

    Well, at least your post is funny. Oh hell, you're still hot.
