Yes, I definitely draw the line at franchise names. Traditional is 1000 times better.

Canberra Athletic has really grown on me. Far too many United's in this league, and with Tasmania's inevitable entry, is the only team who are deserving of "United".

Canberra Athletic or FC Canberra for me.

i dont like fc canberra, its stupid! we dont live in spain where words are around the wrong way.
im sure managemnet could make a deal with the current canberra fc (croatia deakin) to let an a-league team have the name or simply just make it CANBERRA ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL CLUB (CANBERRA AFC)!

canberra athletic is easily the best, but why does every a-league team (apart from sydney) have to have a second name to it. Canberra FC (or AFC as JLCU suggested) is great, and it works for sydney, liverpool, chelsea, arsenal and everton.

yea, AFC Canberra sounds good, (like AFC Wimbledon). But I have to say Canberra Athletic has the best sound to it, and it's unique.

CSKA Canberra and Canberra Dynamo just shouldn't happen in my opinion but that isn't to say that they are bad names. I actually quite like Canberra Dynamo (or Dynamo Canberra). The issue is this name might not appeal to the general public. You also might remember that some of the old NSL clubs had to change their names so that they would be "less ethnic" as to say.
And correct me if I am wrong becease I am in no doubt you would know more about the Russian Premier League than I, but wasn't CSKA Moscow originally a military club.

Wonder what the chances are of Canberra being ditched as the primary name of a potential team? With the bid aiming to reach out as far as the Riverina, Goulburn, South Coast, Yass, Queanbeyan etc. I wonder what the chances are that we could have Capital in our name?

Canberra United W-League team falling under the umbrella of this club, however, may mean we stick with Canberra United.

In terms of branding there is already the Capitals basketball team, so would be wary of steering clear of being informally known as that.

Would be good to factor it in somehow, but from the sounds of things, the bid team will be getting the members to choose, so Canberra may win out...

I understand the attraction of pulling in more geographies but just fundamentally dislike having capital in the team name tbh
