My choice for a name for our Major Jr. hockey team is, PEI Monarchs or PEI Major Jr. Monarchs. That name represents the 3 Counties in PEI...Kings, Queens and Prince.

I wish they'd drop PEI from the name and just go with Charlottetown whatever. But please, no Islanders, Senators, Abbies or other name that has been used to death in PEI hockey. Hopefully people come up with something unique. Kudos to paam for an original name, even though I dislike it (I think of butterfly's not royalty when I hear the name).

Just a dozen or so new name suggestions that I have heard being talked about around Charlottetown:

PEI Junior Islanders (probably the one I have heard the most often to date)
PEI Royals (or Royales - but Victoria in the WHL has that name)
PEI Monarchs
PEI Lions (from the provincial flag)
PEI Riptide
PEI Whitecaps
PEI Breakers
PEI Pirates
PEI Acadiens
PEI Mariners
PEI Gulls (I think I like this one)
PEI Dynamo (don't think I like this one)
Charlottetown Junior Islanders
Charlottetown Coyotes
Charlottetown Shamrocks (from the movie Goon I guess)
Charlottetown Mariners

Anyone hear any others they can add to this list? Any good ones on here?

I really like the PEI RipTide think it suits also I was thinking the PEI Lions because of the flag hope they go with a new name instead of a recycled 1.

It can be fun recycling an old name. How about The 'Abs? A tip of the hat to Les Habitants et le Mi'kmaq nom pour L'isle du Prince Eduard.

The time to change the name was 10 years ago when the team moved from Montreal. After a decade of cheering for the PEI Rocket I'd be quite content to keep doing so.

Here are the top 20 submissions so far. They'll continue to go by the PE or PEI prefix.
•Abbies
•Chiefs
•Confederates
•Coyotes
•Cyclones
•Highlanders
•Icebreakers
•Islanders
•Jr./Junior Islanders
•Mariners
•Pacers
•Phantoms
•Pirates
•Predators
•Prince Edward Islanders
•Reds
•Riptides
•Royals
•Thunder
•Wave

There are a few mind boggling choices there (Chiefs? Cyclones? Pirates? Reds??) and your typical choices (Abbies, Islanders) but a few choices that have potential (Riptides, Icebreakers). I think they should go completely out of the box and come up with something unique to PEI. Let's not use something already used by another sports team in North America.

Kind of reminds me of "changing the deck chairs on the Titanic."

For a "Rebranding" then it should be something completely new... Let the old crap die already...

Riptide.

Singular.

I hope that's the way it goes.

Would not like PEI Islanders - apart from the silliness of it being Prince Edward Island Islanders, having the first word end in a long I and the second word start with a long I does not flow well.
