Help with name for Indianapolis football team

Recommended Posts

Someone mentioned Professional Football Simulator a few days ago, and how you can upload logos and fields and such for the game, so I thought, well, whether I get the game or not, it's a great place to start for some new concepts.

I want to create a team for Indianapolis with a snake being the general idea for the concept. I choose a snake for two reasons: 1) there's a snake called a racer, and 2) Indianapolis is a center for the medical industry, and the symbol for Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, is a snake.

But I'm totally stuck for a name. Racers wouldn't work because it wouldn't embrace the second aspect. Serpents sounds awkward, and Snakes would be just silly.

If you have any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate them. Thanks!

This is great idea! What if you called them the Hot Rods... the racing part is self explanatory but the medical logo you are talking about is known as the "Rod of Asclepius".

Not liking that for Indianapolis, but I think you just gave me my team name for Charlotte, thanks!

i think you should just go with the first idea instead of trying to blend 2 odd concepts together. is a generic medical concept really appropriate or really likable for a sports identity? i say Indy Racers is a good name and blends two different concepts (snake and racing) together in a great way. i believe there used to be a hockey team there named the Racers too? or baseball? IDK, but i think narrowing the focus is your best bet.

but, if you really want to use the two, heres a list of some Hoosier snakes. maybe you can find a name in there - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_snakes_of_Indiana

The king snake is native to Indiana (and, having grown up there, I'm surprised I didn't think of that). I'm already using an Emperor penguin for an Emperors concept, so I think I'm going to go with the Indianapolis Kings (a crown-topped caduceus for the logo).

Thanks so much for the help!

I would vouch for Cobras, but Kings is a pretty good choice

I know you said that Racers didn't work for the medical aspect, but what if they were the Blue Racers?

You could work that into a medical insignia of sorts

I think you should go with Racers for the name, and make the allusion to the medical industry with the logo you create for them.
