03:06 PM ET 12.19 | Anil V. George, the attorney who typically handles the trademarks involving NBA brand names, filed trademarks on five new potential franchise names on behalf of the New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership. The five names included the favorite Pelicans, a mascot that ties into the state bird as well as a minor league baseball team that existed from 1887 to 1959, but the four others also have strong Louisiana ties. The trademarks: New Orleans Pelicans New Orleans Rougarou New Orleans Mosquitos New Orleans Swamp Dogs New Orleans Bullsharks

All sound horrible to be honest. I like the hornets.


Rougarou, Swamp dogs, Bullsharks are all way too agressive and not childrend minded (American way of thinking).

So it will be the Pelicans or mosquitos.
