I understand the desire to name the potential Halifax team the ‘Atlantic Schooners’ because of the failed franchise attempt of the 80s, however, I believe that there are much more suitable and catchier names than that.
My choices for a Halifax team name would be:
1)Halifax Highlanders (due to the Irish and Scottish heritage of many people of the area)
2)Maritime Mariners (tying in the Maritimes as a whole)
3)Atlantic Ice (to make use of the ‘Atlantic’ name and the intense snow that pushes through at times)
Mod Edit: Added the actual names being considered by ownership to the poll.
