    Thunder doesn't sound as bad because the team is winning. Pelicans is worse than Bobcats...

    I like the name. The Pelican is a Eucharistic symbol.

    Pelicans is something my five year old would choose for his rec soccer team. That's just horrible. Way worse than Thunder.

    If they are considering this and Charlotte is getting their hornets name then Jazz need to step in a do a 3 way trade. Utah Bobcats sounds fine and we get some players and picks.

    Yeah we're never giving the name Jazz up. It's been here for 30 + years. It's ours. We took it.

    And yes, pelicans is a crappy crappy team name. Of course it's probably no dumber than the Raptors, and we've been working that one for 15 years now.

    This just can't be serious.

    NO - Voodoo

    I like it simply because it's not cliché. Sure, it's another animal, but it's not one that will result in PA blaring a growl or a roar after every free throw (or first down).

    Agree that it's better than Bobcats, Raptors. Also Wizards, Nuggets, Heat, Magic, any WNBA team name...

    I think pelicans is considerably worst than Raptors. At least a Raptor is somewhat intimidating, but a pelican is no more intimidating than troutbum; and would anyone fear a New Orlean Troutbum

    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. :)
