City and Team Names That Sound "Cool"


TopCat

Recommended Posts

Didn't know where to put this. Thought it would get the most conversation here.

A couple buddies and I were talking about cities and states with names that sounded cool. The criteria can be whatever you want.

Personally I like the names Oakland and Tampa Bay for some reason. As for team nicknames I really like the Pacers.

What do you guys think?

Thought all three Seattle teams were/are pretty well named with the exception of the Pilots.

Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bears/Bulls, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Pistons, Green Bay Packers, Houston Oilers, Miami Dolphins/Heat, Minneapolis Lakers, Minnesota NorthStars/Twins/Vikings, New England Patriots, New Jersey Devils, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia 76ers/Eagles Phoenix Suns, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers I thought were/are pretty aptly named teams as well.

Sure there's probably a few I'm leaving off to that I really like as well.

Anything with some type of alliteration ----> San Jose Sharks, New York Knicks, or Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Florida State Seminoles, Michigan State Spartans, Buffalo Bills, Seattle SuperSonics are all great.

Other great names are Detroit Pistons, Miami Hurricanes, Virginia Tech Hokies, Charlotte Hornets, St. Louis Blues, Atlanta Braves, and Miami Heat. I also love names for any of the big Texas teams ----> Rangers, Stars, Mavericks, Cowboys, Texans, Spurs, Rockets, Astros, LongHorns.

Worst names include: Oklahoma City Thunder, Arkansas State RedWolves, Florida Panthers, Charlotte Bobcats, South Florida Bulls, NOLA Hornets,

Seattle does have great team names. And strangely enough, the minor league hockey team may have the best of the bunch.

Milwaukee is the coolest sounding city name IMO.

That being said, I think the Milwaukee Brewers have the best sounding teamname. Perfectly balanced when spoken.

However, I feel like the Milwaukee Bucks have one of the worst sounding teamnames in the NBA (along with OKC and the Bobcats). Probably its because of the two hard k sounds.

Them and Minnesota I think have been the best historically.

Twins, Lakers, Vikings and NorthStars. That's a great combination to have. Shame they lost the Lakers and NorthStars as names. Timberwolves is alright. Not a big fan of the Wild as a name but they make up for it with awesome sweaters.

Brewers and Bills are really solid as well. Forgot to mention those two from earlier.
