You guys have all turned me off from Commanders.

Washington Commanders is a long name too. Not really a good way to shorten it either.

Wright's comments about relevance were meant to capture tradition, pride, and other intangibles that were made clear in the videos. They easily apply to many names including Wolves.
As to animal names, the one part of the Making the brand videos that really stood out was a zoom call with about 15 kids, and one kid says it has to be an animal, so the interviewer asks all of them if it should be an animal, and all of them but one said yes enthusiastically. I don't think they show that if Wolves isn't a serious consideration.

You into those nicknames of the nickname ? Iíll be glad when they name the team and it will be what it is

Re: Come up with a new name for the Redskins
 
Itís like UVA Cavaliers.. people call them Hoos?? So is the name wahoos or cavaliers? Makes no sense at all .. and if thatís the case if the name is commanders then I guess I can call them the redskins .. which is what I call them anyway

[quote=rocnrik;1301924]So you donít like the Commanders but would be cool with the Armada?[/quote]

Not my preference. Actually quite far down my personal list. But I could see how I could get on board with it.
Even if it initially refers to a warships fleet, Armada more widely expresses a group of men fighting together.
Commanders just refers to the few that are giving orders.

That's like the opposite of team spirit to me. I want the name to refer to the whole team, how many commanders can you have on a team before it self destructs ?

Anyway, mainly a subjective thing, for me Commanders simply sounds like a couple of old white dudes in uniforms with a bunch of sticks up their arses, nothing cool nor exciting about it.
