    Pelicans haha. So does this mean that one of those will for sure be the new name?

    Sorry to crash the party, but Rougarou is downright awful.

    I'm mentally tallying the people's comments on Rougarou. Hardly any detractors. In fact, neworleanshoo is the first to say it's terrible I've seen.

    I don't think I like Rougarou. For some reason it keeps reminding me of gris gris.

    For the record, my girlfriend thinks it's awful.

    But I think she's dead wrong.

    We've had some time to adjust to Pelicans and we're just hearing Rougarou. Rougarou is leading in anyways. Wonder what it would be like if the roles were switched.

    Pelicans is still my favorite, but I could absolutely get behind Rougarou. Just too weird and hilarious not to love

    Took a visit to TigerDroppings. Can tally a few more "horribles". But those cats don't seem to like anything.

    1. Swamp Dogs=2 syllables, relatable to NOLA, marketable, unique
    2. Pelicans=unique, baddest bird out there

    Rougarou is a joke idea. We'd be the absolute laughingstock of the NBA, for good reason.

    I understand people think it's funny, but c'mon.

    And Pelicans wasn't already met with pretty much that?

    I am all for Pelicans. None of those other suggestions really stick out to me

    I love it honestly. I really think it may be the best option i've heard.
    Wife hates it though. Opposites attract

    I said it in the other thread but I'll say it here too... Swamp Dogs (which was a finalist for the name) was my 1B choice with VooDoo when Benson was looking for a name for the AFL team... but for some reason it's not striking me as a NBA team name now

    Pelicans grew on me real quick... esp w/ the logo that has spread around here

    Rougarou could grow on me too... unique name... local urban legend... would need some work but depending on the look I could be sold on it
    "The pelican is fearsome. Take a raven, for example: it's omnivorous. It eats bugs, and seeds, and fruit, and carrion. Compared to the well-rounded citizen that is the raven, the pelican is the serial killer of birds." - Barry Petchesky, Deadspin

    Agreed. I'd take pelicans over any of the other names. Swamp Dogs sounds like an arena football name, bull sharks, ok where's the nola connection, mosquitos, no. Rougarou really is that even a legitimate suggestion? Maybe I'm not "cultured" enough, but after spending twenty years in nola, I've never even heard of the damn thing.

    Really? Most people living in Louisiana and no one north of I-12 knows what the heck a Rougarou is so how do you market that outside of Lafourche Parrish much less trying to reach a global market?

    We should be able to choose more than one.
