Cool. I want to see tons of ideas. I bet we could easily come up with the best logo/brand here on this forum. Who better to decide than the fans?Originally Posted by wuggie
Arc Angels? Sorry, I cannot see that as a professional team name.
It is a bit out there no doubt, but the name would really stand out.Originally Posted by HORNETSFAN
In all honesty, I grew up reading X-Men comics and one of my favorites was the character Archangel mostly because of his design. He was formerly called Angel then transformed into the more deadly Archangel
Honestly, I love the Arc Angels logo, but I can make a better case for using Buccaneers as the name. It was the very first professional team in New Orleans. The Sperms, Pacers, Nets, and Thuggets also began in the ABA and have carried over well to the NBA. Why not the Buccaneers? Plus, Buccaneers has a distinct definition of pirates specifically attacking Spanish and French ships, mostly off of coastal cities and localized in the Caribbean with larger crews.
That's a pretty awesome logo!Originally Posted by CaptainMichael
After ruminating on it or a while...
I really think BRASS or SOUL are the 2 best options.

Hornets is better than Arc Angels. Pretty much anything > Arc Angels.Originally Posted by HORNETSFAN

The only name that would work besides Hornets is Brass. Soul sounds like a women's team and when people think of Bucs they think of Tampa.
Arc Angels is another name that just sounds to cartoonish to me. The Brass would work, but I would prefer Hornets to Brass.
Not a big fan of the Brass or Soul. Too generic for my taste. Maybe decent for an expansion team or if the team just moved, but its gonna be hard to replace Hornets at this point of time and other than Jazz, there's not many names better.

I think its safer to keep the Hornets now, but as far as a New Orleans thing, Arc Angels is closer than Hornets if the team was an expansion team or just moving from Charlotte. However, when the Hornets already entrenched, I think it could be too risky to use Arc Angels.
I'd agree if the franchise were anywhere else, but Brass and Soul are good names for NO team (few other cities could pull it off).Originally Posted by Hornets78
I don't think replacing Hornets will be hard, but honestly I wouldn't mind if they kept the name and changed everything else ... colors, main logo to FDB, font, uniforms, and all related graphics.
While it won't make everyone happy, it's a nice compromise.
The Brass and Soul are solid names for New Orleans and with the right design, and marketing they could succeed. Still, I just wonder if there is a great name out there. Something new, dynamic, and two syllables.Originally Posted by NYKF Hornet
I like brass because you can still incorporate a fleur-de-lis symbol and maybe the NOLA horn.
I have it!!!!!!!!!!!
I introduce to you your New Orleans...... NINJAS
I think the Neonights guy is back!
Yes, neonights rules
Please don't be offended, but I can think of very few names I would dislike more than Arc Angels.
I once had some of the worst grits and drippings in the Queen City
