The Tennessee Titans should be the Nashville Kats because there are sixteen thousand eight hundred and twentyone guitar pickers in Nashville.

The Indiana Pacers should have been the Indianapolis Racers.

When you visit Nashville, visit the full-scale replica of the Parthenon. Enter, and meet an example of the statue of Athena holding Nike.

I thought they were named after the Pace Cars that start the race?

Houston should have been able to retain the name Oilers, and that would have solved the "Titans" name

how?

the washington nats should be called the montreal expos. or at the very least teh wasington senators.

RE: What they should have been called
Sacramento Kings should've found a more unique name, especially with LA Kings in same state. Pilots?

Anaheim Ducks should've never switched from Mighty Ducks. Ditto Phoenix Coyotes, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Boston Patriots, Washington Bullets and Washington Senators.

Vegas Golden Knights should DEFINITELY be Las Vegas Aces. Most egregious of 'em all.

Arizona Cardinals should've flipped to something unique. Javelinas? Roadrunners?

Minnesota Wild should be Minnesota NorthStars. Dallas Stars should be Dallas Texans. Houston Texans should be Houston Oilers.

Arizona Fire

Arizona could steal the NFL Europe football team Rhein Fire

In 1979 when the team moved the Utah Jazz could have been the Utah Stars (after the ABA team in Utah), Utah Pioneers, Utah Rockies (this was before the MLB team in Colorado was formed), Utah Tribes (among a few others). However that ship has sailed. Like the Lakers, the name has stuck with the local fanbase.

I honestly don't think about how ridiculous the name is, it just is what it is like Dodgers, Lakers and Grizzlies.
