Now I love the name.
I heard (or read) that since the New England WHA team didn't have a nickname in its first few days, they went by the New England WHA'ers -- with the apostrophe looking like the letter L and thus the Whalers were created.

Favorite names:
Miami Screaming Eagles (of course)
Cincinnati Stingers
Quebec Nordiques (when said in French)
California Golden Seals
San Francisco Spiders
Binghamton Broome Dusters
Beauce Jaros
Chicoutimi Saguenéens
Trail Smoke Eaters
Minnesota Fighting Saints
San Antonio Iguanas
Non-hockey: San Antonio Gunslingers of the USFL
