In fact, back in the early fall when the Kings were looking like they were going to relocate to Anaheim, the team registered four names: Anaheim Royals, Anaheim Royals of Southern California, Orange County Royals and Los Angeles Royals.
While all of our rebrand talk is wild conjecture, I think it is probably pretty safe to say the league wouldn't let us take the Royals.
And having to explain your nickname is a bad thing. Like people know exactly what a Knickerbocker or Celtic is.
Pilots is better than Navigators. That is way too many syllables. Dub I'd love to see the pilots concept..the sketch looked interesting. Also think it should be one you consider for your presentation.
I still believe the name will end up Angels if it is indeed changed. It wouldn't surprise me if they went with black and gold. I'm not a huge fan of that Idea but if they do I think they should take a page out of purdue's uni book.
The pilot sketch/concept could be cool in B&G and we could make the logo huge at mid court similar to purdue's train.
Dub, I'd like to hear your thoughts/see your ideas, positive or negative.

Krewe was solid, but I felt Carnival was a better name for Mardi Gras.
Voodoo is my favorite. I would also be happy with Krewe or Dukes. Even Hurricanes.
Do not like Bounce, Spirit, etc.
And how about some baseball retreads...Angels, Royals, Cardinals (not the bird though), Royals, Pirates...or Pelicans. All have drawbacks. I'm not put off by the Lafitte images for Pirates...just take a look at UNO's logo...it works.
Not a fan of Knights, just not NOLA enough for me. And I don't like Pilots or Navigators...both are more well known as aviation terms.

"Aime la vérité, mais pardonne à l'erreur." - François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire)
new name for the day begins with the letter O and will be the New Orleans Orpheum...
"we might make dollars, but we don't necessarily make sense"
"always be sincere....whether you mean it or not"
The first part means: New Orleans Orpheum is a great name.
The second part means: You'll get to 26 names . . . I'll get to 30. Shoulda picked Cyrillic, comrade!
you will have every right to claim this as a "win" then...I have no intention of continuing this until a name is actually chosen, but I wouldn't be shocked if you did...
Hmmm . . . baiting me . . . you know I'm a stubborn prick, so I clearly can not choose the wine in front of you. But, you must also know that I mind my time and measure costs, and this being costly means I clearly can not choose the wine in front of me.
How about the New Orleans Bourgeoisie? French connection's there, plus we can shorten it to the NOLA Booze!
I kid, I kid.
You could do Navigators, then shorten it to 'Gators
I like your posts. Royals would be classy and if they can pull off purple, green and gold then that's a big winner. It is classy and unfortuately some Hornets fan don't believe in having a classy nickname. I also like Gators in addition to Krewe, Crescents, Brass and Pelicans.

TO ALL.. How about we just change the name to BEES, get black and gold and call it a day
Wasn't Royals already ruled out?
Voodoo - not my favorite name, does have a minor league sound to it, but then again, a lot of names sound minor league.
