Just out of curiosity, do you have examples of witty, stimulating, younger crowd friendly names that you like?
Well as someone who has spent a lot of time in Ottawa and served in the military my understanding of Highland'ers' was the Highland games which I remember attending as a child. The meaning to me personally has scottish origins and involves men throwing logs and hammers. I enjoyed it as a kid.
As for names that I think would be fun, probably a good idea to run a few concepts by a bunch of grade 6-10 classes and see what they like best. I imagine they really want to reach out to families and parents of kids. Military history is not something of interest to most people until they are in their last couple of years of highschool (based on my own experience).
The mind of a child is different from ours so what I think is cool, they may not. That is why I would run a few by them. You take criticism well enough and I think the idea of creating some other logos with the HO theme might be a good idea. Weird though how I associated highland with the highland games, I wonder if others who grew up here did as well?
I can try and think of some 'fun' names but unless I was prepared to actually do some work on it why bother. I'll remain the critic for now. By the way, I loved the work you did on the Sens jersey.
