Question: Why is St.Louis called the Blues?

Hello, I'm going around every team's board asking a simple question: why does your team have the name it has?

I'd like anyone who knows the history behind St.Louis' team name to share their knowledge.

Team names usually have a very special tie to the region/cities they represent.

Any tid bit of knowledge will do: the circumstances surrounding the naming of your team, choice of logo and team colours, how the name represents your region/city's history, people, and culture, etc...

This is the place for Blues Fans to let everyone know what is so "St.Louis" about the name "Blues" !

There's a song by WC Handy titled 'St Louis Blues'. When the original owner of the team picked his name he chose that and in response to the possibility of getting sued, he said he'd take the risk because of the publicity.
