My thought exactly. Don’t care for the name but I like the logo and colors. I think there’s another professional team around Charlotte with similar colors...

Beyond the literal "City" name, 27 of the 30 MLS franchises, including the new expansion teams, have stuck with the name of a city instead of going with a "regional" name to appeal to fans outside the city itself.

RE: MLS announces plan to expand to 30
I would like to see a little more creativity in some of these names, but I do agree about going away from the traditional American format of "city name" and "nickname." That's perfectly fine and good for other sports, but soccer does have its own culture. I think going with the more European style of naming does help create a different identity for fans.

I know this is to be more in line with European teams, but I'd also bet that they know their demographic. People that are into soccer in 2020 live in the city or in the closest suburbs.
