    N.O not Pelicans yet...4 other names being considered. All terrible

    Please be swamp dogs
    The NBA has filed trademarks for the New Orleans Pelicans, amongst four other potential nicknames on behalf of the New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership.

    The Rougarou, Mosquitos, Swamp Dogs and Bullsharks are the other nicknames that have been filed for trademark.

    A swamp dog is a Cajun nickname for an alligator, while Rougarou refers to a beast from Louisiana folklore.

    New Orleans will likely adopt a red, blue and gold color scheme.

    I had to look this one up

    The Rougarou (alternately spelled as Roux-Ga-Roux, Rugaroo, or Rugaru), is a legendary creature in Laurentian French communities linked to European notions of the werewolf.

    hmmm

    Haha those are all horrible names. They should stick with Pelicans if that's the case.

    The Swamp Dogs? The Mosquitoes??? Good lord...

    Rougarou? Mosquitos? Pelicans?

    I thought the Pelicans was a joke. Who the **** is running these team naming meetings?

    Just go with the Saints, be the same as the NFL. That'd be cool.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Because you unfamiliar with them names, I'm pretty sure you felt the same way about the Bobcats
