If you have to work so hard to explain the name, you are going to have marketing problems. Plain and simple the name sucks - I am glad you at least acknowledge that. So why change a teams name just for the sake of changing it. Originality for the sake of originality is not a reason, particularly when the name suggested will have problems.

3.it does associate with the city,ask anyone;that is if your really from around here.
4.it is intimidating when you consider it's mascot.i would have to say an armoured knight is alot more intimidating than a little sting bug!
5.definition:it actually has 2-one being a NEW NIGHT the other being a night lit up with neon lights making it a neon night.
the bottom line is almost every team name sucks,wizards,knicks,lakers,mavs,supersonics all fit into the suck catagory.all im saying is if we are gonna name the team something sucky,might as well be original about it.
