I read online that the Rangers were going to be named the New York Giants, which would have been the third team with that name in NY at the time, but newspaper headlines kept calling them "Tex's" Rangers because of Tex Rickard, the boxing promoter who founded the Rangers. I'm not sure if this was ever confirmed, since I don't think it has a source on Wikipedia.
