They did their research based on younger people liking the name. I think the season ticket holders should have voted on the name of the Q team as they are the base of any team. Not many of the St. Johnís season ticket holders are under 30 and will not like the Fog Devils.
I live in Halifax, and when you think about it, Mooseheads is a dumb name too. But people don't think about it anymore. Cape Breton Screaming Eagles?? Come on!
I imagine you local fans will just come to refer to the team as 'the Devils'.

Best of luck in the Q!
