    Krewe of New Orleans and Knights of New Orleans sound OK, but as an officially licensed team name, just no for me. A little too much reaching to be unique right there to the point of being slightly weird.

    However, those terms could certainly be used casually with those brands, sure. For instance with a PA announcer announcing a starting lineup: "Now the starting lineups for your...KREWE OF NEW ORLEANS!!!!" That'd be a nice touch.

    Join the Arcangels bandwagon! What's generic about that?

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    thanks for doing this....and I totally agree with you that although our licensed name would likely be New Olreans Krewe, it flows so much better from the other direction....however, I sincerely feel that Knights works very well either way and I was pretty much blown away with the number of ways Knights is already directly associated with both the city and Carnival...

    We're not getting the Jazz name back.

    So still only 4 of us like the Dukes. It just seems to make sense.

    you are one of the better posters around here, but I've got a feeling that the bear is going to get you in this endeavor...

    I actually wouldn't mind Dukes. Whatever our mascot could be, he could be named Phillipe.

    You could say that about all but one of these names, and even then they may have something different in mind.

    New Orleans Dukes... its got a ring to it.

    I can definitely say Knights and Dukes won't happen.

    you are probably right.

    Generics though, that's got a shot.

    Guys, bigdub is right. No need to constantly bash people's opinions. Especially mine.

    So stop it.

    So UKP and Downman, you would call "Saints" non-generic? It has its unique connection, but the name is as generic and simple as you can really get. What's your justification there?
