Names for Roller Hockey series

I don't have a name for the league yet, but I'm trying to find something other than RHI or MLRH.

As far as teams go, here's a rough alignment for Season One. Warm weather markets are a point of emphasis, but NY and LA are pretty much there to get TV channels on board (Maybe Fox, TNT, ESPN or USA Network for season one).

East
Atlanta Roller Bears (Suggested by Gritty)
New York Rhymes (NYC is the birthplace of hip-hop)
Miami Merfolk/Mermen/Tritons (?)
Boston

Central
Chicago
Dallas
Houston Starfleet
Minnesota

West
Denver
Anaheim/Hollywood/Los Angeles/Southern California
Oakland/Sacramento/San Francisco/San Jose
Seattle Grunge

Possible expansion:
Cleveland Moondogs
Orlando Boy Band

Inaugural season will be somewhere between 1990 and '93 in case anyone's wondering.

Names from WRHL and PBH that might be in consideration:
Aztecs
Blast
Dawg Pac
Gargoyles
Xpress/Express
Fury
Heavy Metal
Salsa
Titans
Turbos
Typhoon
Wave

That's a nice one too.

Still stumped on a league name though.

Re: Names for Roller Hockey series

Honestly, as lame as it sounds. When I started thinking up my roller hockey league when I was like 13 (im 30 now), i just called it the RHL (roller hockey league).  Pretty simple haha.

Re: Names for Roller Hockey series

I love the Merblades! Finding a team that not only works but can use 'blades' in it is like finding gold.  I love the Florida Everblades and when I was a kid an AHL team called the Kentucky Thoroughblades
