"Pelicans" is not a scary name. But it's... likable. Kinda

It might grow on me

The Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, which is known as the Pelican State. The Pelican is also on license plates, the state flag, the state seal and the state painting. The bird symbolizes Louisiana's environmental recovery from oil spills. There was also a minor-league baseball team in New Orleans called the Pelicans from 1887-1959 and 1977 of which Benson was fond.

Are they actually changing it midseason or waiting until the 2013-14 season?

They are probably announcing the name change today, but the actual name change would take place starting next season. I guess in the offseason sometime
