What they should have been called
Let's discuss what various pro teams should have been called. I'll start of with two.

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.

Isn't that an argument that they should have been called the Nashville Guitar Pickers.

I don't see any difference between Pacers and Racers. I think we can all agree that the Jazz have the wrong city for their name. I'd also argue that the Thunder have the wrong name and are in the wrong city. And while many of us are too young to remember, there haven't been any trolleys in LA to dodge for nearly 80 years.

Washington Redskins should have been the DC Caucasions

Chicago Bears should be the Hogs
Chicago Cubs should be the Pigs

Utah Jazz should be the Mormons

oklahoma city Thunder is ok, but really they should be the Frackers.

The Pacers are named after a pacer car, so they more or less already are.

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

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?

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 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.
