Default Renaming BPL teams

If BPL wants to create its own identity and not just be an IPL knock off, then we need to get rid of the generic names and come up with something relevant to each region. I mean, wth is a sixer? Rajshahi Kings? How many teams around the world are called Kings? It's smacks of laziness. Calling a team victorians because the owners went to Victoria College is perhaps the saddest, egomaniacal nonsense I've come across. So lets help them out and create our own names.

Barisal Bulls
Comilla Victorians
Chittagong Vikings
Dhaka Dynamite
Rangpur Riders
Khulna Titans
Rajshahi Kings
Surma Sixers

So any ideas?

I think a sixer is what many in sub-continent calls a six. I might be wrong on this.

Sydney Sixers in Big Bash comes to mind..

BPL names are just lazy and copycats from NBA/IPL.

They can just do Dhaka Utd, Ctg City, Khulna Club etc. I like EPL names.

A sixer is somebody who hits a six. Which is just a dumb team name. Might as well call them the Square Drivers.

Instead of Kings, maybe Rajshahi Rajas?

Or Shahs of Sylhet/ Sylheti Sultans

Yankees bold names to give. Both jokes are bad bro. Not good idea. Let's not get carried away.

What sin and saitans got in Sylhet? The least place in Desh. You know too well Sylhet is the most religious place in the land. Shaitans and sinners are in Dhaka mostly

It is the birth place of our religious identity, Sylhet.

That's probably one of the reason, some are very religious.

It took time for the full Islam to reach other parts of country, hence probably some differences/more modern culture exercised in other cities.
