I don't understand... What is generic about Vodoo or Krewe or Brass? I mean, they all 3 mean something to the city, so I don't see how it could be considered "generic."
Of course though, we could always go with the New Orleans Generals ...or is that native to Washington?

I could be wrong, but I really don't think there is a majority group where over half strongly want the name.
We need some more birds! The New Orleans Nighthawks. The New Orleans Kingbirds. The New Orleans Night Herons.

ducks or teal would be good

From a very scientific poll taken at a party....Dukes was far away the winner. I didn't even hear of that idea until today and the more I hear it, the more I like it. Easily tied to the city and the artwork could be awesome. Saints worked just as Dukes could work.
I really like the name Knights, and I plan to enter the ESPN contest, so I'm trying to get some feedback on my designs. I'll have them up soon, the logo is a tweaked version of the ArcAngels logo.

"we might make dollars, but we don't necessarily make sense"
"always be sincere....whether you mean it or not"
I could get one board with Knights or Dukes. Those aren't as cryptic as some other suggestions, even though Dukes makes me think of JMU.
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
For the love of everything holy, Benson, please stuff Sir Derpington back into the nightmare from which you plucked him.
Dukes is cool, some nice color ideas can come from that one. Navy Blue/Creole Blue/Gold?
My pick would be the New Orleans Flambeaux.
I'm making the official spelling Arcangels. I think it looks better than Arc Angels or ArcAngels. Lipstick on a pig?
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
I just DO NOT like the ArcAngels, Knights, Sinners...it seems that some people are getting to over zealous about names because they came up with it. This shouldnt be a personal thing and why should we have regional empathy to pick a name. This team is in New Orleans...do you actually think that if this team were on the MS Gulf Coast they would say well lets name it something that represents the whole region...OF COURSE NOT. VOODOO & JAZZ...will NEVER HAPPEN we need to get that out our heads. We have a chance to help come up with something that could last a long time. Some concepts sound good because they have been done already and there is a fan base...Do you think that the HEAT sounded good at first for an expansion team in MIAMI....I dont want this to be a BOBCAT thing ...lets face it that name sucks and has nothing to do with the city....anyway thats my thoughts
