    You know, before the Thunderbirds, there was the Breakers. That makes some sense here if you're not going to splurge by buying out the Thunderbirds and, in all likelihood, only accelerating what's going to happen to them by 3 years anyway.

    I'll play along, but let the records show I'm not actually in favor of any of these:

    Seattle Archers
    Seattle Vikings
    Seattle Norsemen
    Seattle Pirates
    Seattle Raiders
    Seattle Vandals

    This list isn't getting any better as I add to it.

    Taking the T-birds name and unis has always been my first choice above all others. I love their unis.
    Too similar to the Nucks? Make them go back to the flying vee.:D

    Wouldn't hurt my feelings since I follow the Winterhawks anyway.

    Okay here’s my name that I took a while to think of:

    The Seattle Grind

    -rough, grungy connotation (common pac northwest cultural stereotype)
    -hockey term
    -relates to coffee

    After Howard Schultz I don't think Seattle needs any relation to coffee in their team names.

    Totems is a stupid name. Just thought I'd chime in.

    Mariners is a perfect name. Why they aren't trying to coincide with that is beyond me.

    Totems will never happen. Doesn’t matter if it’s Norse, anything seemingly related to Native Americans is a non-starter in 2019.

    Nah, you and everyone else are just crying foul based on personal tastes and ignorance. It has absolutely nothing to do with sensitivity to native culture. This is apparent by the use of native themed art for nearly every Seattle concept logo. If anything "seemingly related to Native Americans is a non-started in 2019" then Native themed art is offensive.

    The so called outrage over the name is ridiculous. Totems are a fairly benign symbol. They are not of native origin nor exclusive to any native culture.

    Except that in Seattle's case use of the name would be exclusively referencing northwest Native tribes.

    Seattle Sasquatch.

    Not strictly local, but its associated with the north west, it's an intimidating legend and history associated with it, and it pays indirect tribute to various people's throughout the history of Seattle, Washington and the Northwest.

    Plus the logo/mascot options are near limitless.
