The New Orleans Hornets have 4 other options for their new name


One thing we’re certain of, the New Orleans Hornets will have a new name shortly. The franchise trademarked five names in total including, the previously noted Pelicans.

Check out the rest of the names under consideration and let me know your thoughts:

New Orleans Pelicans

New Orleans Rougarou

New Orleans Mosquitos

New Orleans Swamp Dogs

New Orleans Bullsharks

A Rougarou is some sort of monster from cajun folklore that’s similar to a werewolf… I still think Brass would’ve been a great choice. This list is just… yeah.
