Beautiful

It is rather stunning but, and I may be wrong but, won't sports fans from Trumpland expect a bit more Pzazz as a matter of course?

Bluebirds is a bit soft for a rugby team... I voted Knights for the alliteration and existing team, and Titans that has connection with the city's football past, and fits in with the Giants.

New York Empire? or something like Empire Rugby Club?

If you are a badminton team, you probably need to give yourself a "hard name" like the Sudbury Psycho Rhinos Badminton Team.  If you are a rugby league team, the RLFC should be enough to indicate you are a bit hard.

And what better reason do you need?

New York Rebels or Rebellion for mine.

But any  USRL clubs calling itself Thirteen Stars has a ring about it too!

I am ambivalent of most the names on the list.  Few of them have any real connotation to local or regional identity.  For example there are no eagles in NY to my best knowledge and Buccaneers/Pirates really is a theme best suited to a team in the deep south.

I don't think anyone has already mentioned that there is already a New York Liberty. That's what the WNBA team is called. So I guess that's out.

I quite like the Bluebirds as a nickname but New York Bluebirds as an actual team name just doesn't roll off the tongue for me. The same way that the Robins works for KR but Hull Kingston Robins or Hull Robins doesn't really sound right. Maybe just call them New York RLFC but incorporate the bluebird into the badge (predominately blue kits too) and promote the nickname. Like English football clubs do. Although tbh I can't think of many other examples of this working in US sport.
