UND Releases Nickname Consideration List

How does the “Fighting Farmers” or “Fighting Frackers” sound for UND’s new nickname?

Those are just two of the hundreds of potential nicknames submitted to the university’s Nickname committee.

The university has released 214 pages of suggestions along with the reasons the nickname should be picked.

It’ll be narrowed down to a short list for a public vote.

It comes after a month long process seeking public input on a name to replace the retired “Fighting Sioux”.

Another list was released with suggestions that will “not” be recommended by the committee for numerous reasons.

You can see the consideration and non-consideration lists here.

Warning: some names on the non-consideration list are graphic.
