The decision for the nickname “Ravens” came from over 100 possible names narrowed down to 17 by NFL club executives, shaved down to 6 by focus groups, trimmed down to Ravens, Marauders and Americans via a 1,000 fan telephone survey and made official by over two-thirds of 33,288 voters. The inspiration for the Raven's nickname came from Edgar Allan Poe who was also a former Baltimore, Maryland resident. With their Super Bowl XLVII victory led by coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Joe Flacco who became the first coach and quarterback duo to win a playoff game within their respective first five seasons, the Baltimore Ravens can definitely be considered one of the elite teams within the NFL. If you own a dog or a cat, they also need to represent their team with a unique nickname rooted in Baltimore, Maryland history.
