The Akron RubberDucks.
Beat me to it. I'm from Albuquerque, and I agree that Isotopes is one of the most unique team names out there. Though of course, it was thought of by The Simpsons, not by anyone with the team. As an eleven-year-old Simpsons fan, I was a huge fan of the name choice. Today it does feel a bit like a joke that's outlived its humor, which may be part of the reason why caps and jerseys of the Albuquerque Dukes (the city's previous AAA team) have gotten so popular in recent years. Though I still like the Isotopes name in and of itself.
I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Jazz in this thread. In my opinion, "Jazz" is the most unique and creative name in the Big Four leagues.
The Graham Clayton High School in New South Wales, Australia goes by the "Bumpers."

Is Lincoln High's Railsplitters unique? How about the Pittsburgh State Gorillas?
D-II Lincoln Memorial is the Railsplitters.

Nova Southeastern SharksLOL, that's the school I go to. I'm surprised someone's heard of it!
Nova Southeastern Sharks
LOL, that's the school I go to. I'm surprised someone's heard of it!
I've heard of them and they used to be the Knights until a few years ago. Congrats on adding Palm Beach Atlantic and Embry-Riddle to the SSC. I didn't think Sharks was unique enough San Jose, Jacksonville
I've always considered the Big Ten home of the most unique names (at least in D1)
Terrapins (feels weird to include them)
I saw a geoduck for the first time at a restaurant in Hong Kong. They're really freaky.
Surprised no one has included the St. Louis University Billikens at this point.
hokies and sooners
Johnson (Savannah, GA) High Atom Smashers
Every time I see this kid with a Nova Southeastern sharks bumpersticker I always question why they went with a Junior league baseball team name like "The Sharks".
Nobody here has a soft spot for Gamecocks ?
Macon Whoppee - hockey

OK, so can we all agree that, for the most part, high schools have the most unique nicknames?
Shreveport Crawdads -CBA (defunct)
New Orleans Voodoo -Arena football
Winnipeg Blue Bombers- CFL
And from my hometown of Port Huron, Mi:
Port Huron Flags (defunct- IHL 65-77)
Port Huron Border Cats (defunct-UHL)
Western Florida is also named the Argonauts, so Toronto isn't exactly the only team that uses this nickname.
