Isn't "Thames Valley Royals" used in editions of PES (Pro Evo Soccer) and before it ISS (International Superstar Soccer) due to naming rights.
 
There was/is a raft of random names which sometimes took/take a while to figure out, here are some I can think of;

West Midlands Village
East London Irons (a tad easier)
Hertfordshire
London FC (take your pick)
South Norwood
East Midlands (again, take your pick)
Yorkshire Reds

Still, PES is a better playing experience than FIFA and you can use option files to put all that right.

If we're going down the route of naming teams like Basketball ones then Swindon Steamers would be just about liveable.

Love a bit of Roberto Larcos, the name curves just as much as he could curl the ball. Didn't think much when he played for MD White though  Smiley


Oh and looking at it. Maybe they were Thames Valley Royals on PES at one point but Reading are Berkshire Blues now.

Cardiff changed their shirt colour (for a couple of seasons) and nearly became the Cardiff Dragons.

If we were to change our name, what would you like it to be?

The Swindon Spartans has a nice ring to it, but sounds like a 9th tier team.


I’d be happy with just ‘Swindon’ and drop the Town. Means we don’t have to have a hastily rename to Swindon City should we ever be granted city status. No self respecting Town fan will ever want to chant ‘City! City!’ Im sure.

Tbh both 'Town' and even 'don' have been dropped unofficially in more recent times. It's mostly 'Swin' and I'm not too sure how I feel about that  Pint Hmmm

Wouldn't worry too much about that, we've got fuck all chance of getting city status and even in the vanishingly unlikely event that we did, no need for the club to change it's name for a local govt change. The club didn't change it's name to "Unitary Borough of Swindon FC" when the last rejig happened.

We should go all NFL. Swindon Oinkers. A bit more of a local take on Miami Dolphins

Porkers more like, what with everyone’s expanding waist line due to lockdown and now the FF boys are opening up again to engorge the gastric pipeline of the sloth society.

No I think Swinedon Saddlebacks has a nice ring to it With a pigs ear, curly tail and string of sausages incorporated into a new logo.
