To you maybe. But your opinion would be far outnumbered by the millions and millions fans of the NBA that would know us as Arcangels, but Angels even better. When you think of the Blazers is the Trail Blazers the first thing that comes to mind? Of course not, first thing you think of is Blazers. Just look at my gameday threads, I always put Blazers and not Trail Blazers without thinking twice.
I want a name that I can actually enjoy, and not have to listen to people complain about how the media and every other fan isn't calling us by our "real" name, but rather the national perception is that we are the New Orleans Angels, like the Los Angeles Angels. LA Angels. We both know that would happen, people complaining because they aren't calling us the Arcangels if that was indeed our name.
And really wants even the point, both of our jerseys say New Orleans and not Hornets right now. That could obviously change, but what if it doesn't? Arcangels is too complex, not to mention the confusion with Arch Angels.
wiggity wiggity wack
city of angels yeah lets rip that too
we are amusing ourselves and killing time, but little else with our nickname polls and opinions...the only way any of it really means anything would be if the powers to be actually opened the naming rights up to the public somehow....and who knows?....perhaps they will...
"we might make dollars, but we don't necessarily make sense"
"always be sincere....whether you mean it or not"
I mean in the end it's only my opinion, but if people are going to butcher a name is it really good enough? What is an Arcangel? Not to mention it looks weird and doesn't exactly roll off the tung like other more common names do. Which plays a part in picking a name. You want a name that will be easy to say, easy to type, and that people will understand.
I still prefer VooDoo since it would be an obvious NOLA name after Jazz.
Also, since we're changing the name from an established name in the league, it has to be something really creative or something that fits perfectly. We need to hit a home run with the name change. I don't think Brass or Krewe are really creative or fits perfectly. VooDoo would fit perfectly. Arcangels is really creative and can make sense for a NOLA basketball team.

Okay guys I have to credit my sister for this new awesome name. Ladies and Gentlemen, The New Orleans Cyprrss! Or The Cresent City Cypryss!n please guys provide feedback, I thank its pretty cool name and new and uniqye to the Whole Gulf Area!!! If its wack please voice ur opinon but I think its really cool and not cheesy nor childish.
New Orleans ArcAngels
New Orleans Knights
New Orleans Crusaders
New Orleans Corsairs
The best names
Knights is the best name so far.
It makes sense for NOLA without alienating the region and would be appealing to international fans, especially in Europe and with Aussies.
78...did you create the avi that you use? I only ask because it is very cool and I am wondering what someone that talented could do with Knights...
