    The NBA's Board of Governors would have to vote in favor of any name change and the process usually takes two years to complete but could come as early as next season with Stern expediting the process. The Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002.

    "My guess is that there is going to be some formal application; judication in the next couple of months and Im going to see where it goes from here, Stern said.

    Stern said the Benson has filed trademark protection for five possible names that he did not identify.


    US Trademark site filed December 5th

    Wow I can't wait to see Anthony Davis as the new front man of "The Pelicans"

    I mean the unibrow, the pelicans, I'd be scared. But then again I am scared of birds.

    The Bull Sharks could work. But then it also could end up being a cheap copy of the Bulls.

    They should keep their color schemes though. I love their jerseys.

    NBA Files Trademark For New Orleans Pelicans, Four Others
    Dec 18, 2012 8:38 PM EST


    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 no idea. Pretty easy to wiki it.

    Rougarou
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    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.

    Goes on talking about human transforming into a werewolf or something...idk...

    Like the Bullsharks and think Rougarou is okay for there area but will go over the head of the masses not knowing what it is,saw them on swamp people talking about that it was pretty cool...

    Also Pelicans dont know how to feel about that one other than we need to change Areas back to there originally names like Jazz going back to NO as people have stated....
