Default Team Names / Franchise - Love or Hate?

Imagine teams and players never existed (yes I know, it’s hard to imagine the Yankees, Lakers and Cowboys without names and faces, but work with me here). Now, look at just the team name and/or mascot.

Does it make sense? Do you like it, dislike it? The purpose of this thread is look at all professional (please, no college) sports and name franchises that you love or hate simply because of the name of the franchise.

I’ll start with my own. I’ll choose three from each sports (both positive and negative).

Love

NBA

Supersonics
Pistons (very fitting for Detroit)
Bucks

NFL

Browns
Chiefs
Dolphins

MLB

Orioles
Phillies
Astros

Hate

NBA

Lakers
Magic
Suns

NFL

Steelers
Packers
Bucs

MLB

Royals
Braves
Devil Rays

I love the Cleveland Browns, because everytime I have to take a dump I tell everyone that I have to go take the Browns to the Superbowl.
