It's unique in that it is no some fake-arse cool/tough animal name like Pumas or some other ish. It's easy to be badarse when you are a puma. You do that when you are a pelican...

Eh, its not the best name but not that bad. It's not like "Hornets" is much better. The thing with a lot of team names is it just takes time to get use to.

Sucks the "Hornets" name is no more. I grew up always digging that logo.

Now, the name sucks because of that perception, but the birds are cool.


This is true, but I guess it's how they've been portrayed in media over the years... but yes, they are practically dive-bombers.

Still think it's a lame name thanks to the above meme having worked on me!
