The Flamethrowers name is definitely, um, original.
Vancouver Riptide . Seattle Raptor(s) . San Jose Spiders . San Francisco FlameThrowers (represented by Flames) . SLC Lions.

American Ultimate Disc League - Midwest Division
The Radicals name is totally original. The Wind Chill is semi-original and the spelling of Mechanics is, well, different.
Minnesota Wind Chill . Madison Radicals . Windy City Wildfire . Detroit Mechanics . Cincinnati Revolution.

The Empire name is truly unique. Had to go international for a Phoenix match, while Montreal's name matched with some assiStance.
