What’s in a name?

And what of the Redmen?  I’ve never been a big fan of Red Storm.  I don’t mind the Johnnies as an unofficial nickname, but full time?  No way!  We could go with Vincentians, but most Catholics probably have no idea what that means, so I think the significance of the name would be lost on the masses.  St. John’s is named for St. John the Baptist, but calling the team the Baptists would only cause even more confusion – people might ask, “Why not the St. John’s Shakers”?  The Baptizers would be more appropriate, perhaps the denizens of Lavinwood could dump water on the opposition.  Or we could just go with the Red Menace.  I will contemplate this on the tree of woe…
