    Is there any team named the Pigeons? That would be worse, IMO. Might be appropriate for a real crappy team though.

    Pelican doesn't roll off the tongue so easy and no abbreviated version of any worth comes to mind.

    I still can't believe that many hate the name. I personally think it's sick, wicked and nasty. .. but then again, it was Lehi's mascot years ago. :-)

    Pels, bro, Pels. I actually like the name. It's not some generic overused middle-school-mascot name like the bobcats.
    It's Fresh. £¥£.

    I laughed when I heard they wanted to change their names to the pelicans. And I would agree that it sounds like something a youth league would name their team. Is it just me, or has all the creativity been extinguished when it comes to naming teams?

    On another note, and probably in bad taste but....... The first name that popped into my head for NO was the hurricanes....

    yes, teams should all have names like the Billikens (St. Louis U) or the Hoosiers or the Knitting Knees Lions

    So they've also trademarked 'Rougarou' and 'Swamp Dogs' ..

    Kinda awesome... (swamp dogs be Cajun for allimigators)

    Well, the all-time lamest may have been the "Mighty Ducks" after Disney founded the Anaheim team. Imagine being a pro athlete and having to play for a team named after a children's movie about a bunch of peewees. And knowing that the franchise was more about marketing the Disney movies than about actually playing pro hockey.

    BTW, my favorite all-time team name is a college one: the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs.
