I did not like the name at first but when the bull emblem on the helmet was presented, I was like "yeah, that's cool!" No name change now.

Default Re: Rename the Texans

There were no good names on the list they came up with. "Apollos" was apparently meant to be a tribute to the space program, but it feels weak for some reason. Stallions and Bobcats are names for high schools, not NFL franchises. The definition of "Wildcatter" isn't commonly known. As for "Texans"...I hated it when it came out. It seemed lame and lazy.

But we got a really cool logo out of it, so I can live with it.

Default Re: Rename the Texans

I like the name Toros which of course is the Spanish word for bulls. It would match our logo, which is the best in pro football. Toros wouldn't turn off potential fans from out of state.

The Astros have already changed once. They started out Colt 45's.

Cool, thanks. I was trying to remember what they used to be called.

Default Re: Rename the Texans

I have always thought the name "Texans" was one of the lamest names in the NFL, but that they had the coolest logo in the NFL. Myself, I would have preferred the name "Stampeed", but over time Texans has grown on me and we still have that really cool logo!

I enjoyed the name from the beginning. Better than forcing something else.

Toros would have been cool, but eh.

Default Re: Rename the Texans

Like a lot of people, I wasn't a fan of the name at first announcement but it has grown on me and a change is unwanted.

Besides, all these years of "No one ever talks about the Texans" when they finally do "we want to change the name?" (I know it's hypothetical, but still)

Just two really bad threads and me in some kind of weird funk. I seriously hate the name roughnecks. It doesn't describe our city at all anymore. I love Texans because that's what we are. Nobody has state pride like we do. I should chill out though, you're right. You aren't the first to notice.
