The New Orleans Hornets have announced that they'll be changing their name to the New Orleans Pelicans starting next year.

The pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, and is on the Louisianan flag.

That's actually a pretty nice logo. Much better than the silly cartoon bug.

When the rumors first came out I was really skeptical on the name, but I also really like that logo.

And, if it turns out that the Bobcats ditch their nickname and re-brand as the Charlotte Hornets, that's just an extra bonus.

Personally, I was partial to a bunch of the logos from 99 Designs' contest (99designs.com), especially the winner:

But this official one is really good nevertheless. Some of the ones that I liked from the contest wouldn't have worked in a pro sports context, and the only quibble I really have with the rebrand is that the colors aren't all that distinctive.
