    I loved Pelicans from the starts, but it's now a lot more amazing.

    Straight A*$, I'm calling BULL. Everybody's has lots of jokes. No Brass, Angels, Spirits, Voodoo, Krewe(like some claim) Buccaneers... Mosquitos especially, and Swamp Dogs, I won't get into how mind blowing Rougarou would be. Straight disrespectful.

    Bullfrog or Swampbat woulda been cool... not sure Swampdog or Bullshark is as good. Bullshark could make a pretty cool logo though

    Yeah pelicans is officially not the worst name ever, its now the 2nd worst.

    "Swampdog is a nickname for an alligator"..... uhh so why not just be the Gators?

    I refuse to believe this rumor. I simply can't.
    Support Louisiana businesses.

    These names are disgusting lol, pelicans is all-time greatness by comparison. Tom Benson may be old, but he isn't that out of touch with reality. Forget minor league and WBNA team names, this is little league quality

    Has to be fake. Brass and Krewe were already mentioned before with pelicans. Rougarou is a ****ing made up word

    It's real. Run a search for these names on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?...004:pymydp.1.1

    Rougarou: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...009:rwi46n.2.2

    Bullsharks: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...004:pymydp.2.1

    Pelicans: http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/showfield...004:pymydp.3.3

    Etc. All are dated December 5, 2012.

    Weird but potentially important note: The "Owner" field says the following: New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership the general partners, Shinn Enterprises Incorporated, a North Carolina corporation, and Big Play Entertainment, LLC, a Georgia limited liability company LIMITED PARTNERSHIP NORTH CAROLINA 1250 Poydras Street New Orleans LOUISIANA 70113

    I'm not well-versed in the legal part of ownership, but why would it list Shinn Enterprises as a partner, and not list Benson's name anywhere?

    Everything about this list screams, "All I know about Louisiana is what i see on Swamp People". Besides Pelicans, the name that people think has been chosen, every other name has something to do with the Swamp or River.
