NBA Trademarks Five Names For Hornets

Whatever they are going to be, the NBAs New Orleans franchise is not going to be the Hornets much longer. Even David Stern said he would help speed along a name change for the franchise.

Anil V. George, the attorney who typically handles the trademarks involving NBA brand names, filed trademarks on five new potential franchise names on behalf of the New Orleans Hornets NBA Limited Partnership.

The trademarks:

New Orleans Pelicans

New Orleans Rougarou

New Orleans Mosquitos

New Orleans Swamp Dogs

New Orleans Bullsharks
