I actually think it's a pretty good name. I mean, it has to do with the state bird of Louisiana. That's perfectly in sync with what other teams do when they pick or change their nicknames.
As long as they make a sharp-looking identity as far as unis and logos go, they should be okay. What they should not do
is make a logo that's cartoonish, a la the Charlotte Hornets. I love that logo but I think it only worked in Charlotte. New Orleans should do a really simple classic logo. Let's hope they don't Thunder Up on us
They are also changing up the colors to navy, gold and red so they (the Bensons) have a great chance at creating a good business brand that could sell a lot over the years actually, and hopefully keep the Pelicans in New Orleans.
