    per wiki :
    The book "G" is for Growing: Thirty Years of Research on Children and Sesame Street refers to Big Bird as a canary.[8] In an episode of Sesame Street, Big Bird was asked if he was related to the cassowary, he replied, "I'm more of a condor." On a 1976 episode of Hollywood Squares, he said he was a lark, causing host Peter Marshall to crack up.[9] In the film Don't Eat the Pictures, Osiris calls Big Bird an ibis. Big Bird appeared in a series 11 episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, in which he declares he is a "Golden Condor". Regardless he is always described as being flightless.

    I'd rather keep the hornets for the next 50 years than change to the name to pelicans.

    I don't like Pelican at all for a basketball name. Doesn't fit well.

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    pretty sure we would end up being called the Pels....just like the baseball team used to be....

    Neither does ArcAngels...

    I like Pelicans. I don't really think there is any such thing as a "basketball name."

    That has to be a joke, right? That looks like something my 4yr old cousin would draw.

    I'm not feelin' the Pelicans. Waiting for the color scheme and uni concepts. I hope they don't suck as much as the name does.

    Agree with this, I am happy with any name except Spirits or Arc Angels (sorry Hornets78)

    This is 100% true. People are so quick to cry about this, even with the memory that Spirit and Angels were once primary names as well, and nothing came of that either. I have names I like better than others, but I'm just excited that the rebrand will be happening. Even if it's Krewe I won't complain about it.

    New Orleans is all about great music. The New Orleans Brass is a winner hands down.

    New Orleans is about Mardi Gras as well. New Orleans Carnival would be the next best thing to the New Orleans Jazz.

    Feel this should be duplicated.

    I think that most of us would agree the best option is bringing the "Jazz" name back home.

    but since that more than likely won't happen... I will cheer for whatever the artist formerly known as the New Orleans Hornets will be called. I will buy their merchardise, I will go to games when I can, and I will cheer them unconditionally... and I'd hope all of you bemoaning the "Pelicans" name do the same... even if they are called the Pelicans (or shortened to Pels)

    either way... it'll mostly be about the look... and I hope they come up with a look we all agree with... no matter what the name eventually becomes
