I personally would like to see New Orleans Rougarou!

unbelievable

Terrible. At first I thought this was an article from The Onion. I think they suggested the rest of the nicknames to make Pelicans sound better..

Seriously? Rougarou (had never heard this in my life and thought it was just a funny made up word). Some cajun werewolf boogeyman, really? The rest are even worse! The New Orleans Mosquitos (seriously if this is it then they should have just stuck with the hornets, in no way represents New Orleans), The New Orleans Swamp Dogs (isn't that the team from the Waterboy?), The New Orleans Bull&$#%#&@!, I mean Bullsharks. Last but not least, the Pelicans. If these are the options, I'm going with Pelicans. This is really bad, the people of New Orleans do not deserve this garbage.

This organization needs to step it up, come on. You're supposed to change the name of your franchise to something better, not something that will make people laugh and think less of the organization (ie. Bobcats, another terrible name for a team).

names

A while back (could be months, could be years) we had a discussion topic on new names for New Orleans on this site and we had waaaayyyy better names than all of those. Our names were catchy and had relevance. I'm gonna go see if I can find it.

Bad

All bad. Here are some of my bad ideas.

New Orleans Funk

New Orleans Soul (Is that WNBA or Arena Football already?)

New Orleans Lilies (Not very masculine but represents the Fleur-de-lis and the NO symbol, could make for a cool symbol/jersey)

New Orleans Gator no s

New Orleans Carnivals

New Orleans Maniacs (wayne)

Also trying to think of a respectful way to pay tribute to Katrina victims and survivors......

If they want to give the team

If they want to give the team a historical feel, they should go with New Orleans Blues
