How about:

 

1. Abbotsford Armada. (okay, so a little far from the ocean for a navy)

2. Abbotsford Aquatics. (Better than Aquilitics)

3. Abbotsford Apemen. (Short, punchy)

4. Abbotsford Axemen. (in fond memory of the deforestation of much of Abbotsford)

5. Abbotsford Acemen (Menace? Icemen?) 

6. Abbotsford Assmen (okay, okay)

7. Abbotsford Archaeopteryx (in keeping with the flight idea)

8. Abbotsford Anchormen (keep the team firmly on the bottom, er, wait....never mind)

9. Abbotsford Authoritarians (Fan club: Abbitarians. <Elvis voice> Thank you, thank you very much.)

10. Abbotsford Antifa (just to, sort of, you know, get people arguing)

 

Speaking personally, I can hardly wait for all you city slickers to try navigating the parking at Abbotsford Centre, and the legendary double roundabout on McCallum that every one of you will have to figure out. Good luck on a windy, rainy night; it's like two merry-go-rounds, in the dark, with firehoses trained on your every move and headlights in your face everywhere. If you can car pool, do it, or you might be stuck in line waiting to get out of the parking lot a very long time. Some enterprising person might figure out a way to provide buses from downtown and back on game nights.

How about the "Abbbotsford Avro"... Avro Canada designed and built the CF-100 Canuck interceptor-fighter jet. The Canuck was the only Canadian-designed fighter jet to enter mass production and played a important role with NORAD and NATO in North America and Europe during the cold war. "Lets Go AV-RO"

I'd for sure fo with a name that "fits" with the Canucks either on the Orca side or the Canuck side

 

 

Name taken from the latin name of the Pygmy Killer Whale (Feresa attenuata) The sad thing about it is that in never travels as far north as Canada.. Would be amazing if it did!

Abbotsford Feresa? 

 

 

I'd for sure fo with a name that "fits" with the Canucks either on the Orca side or the Canuck side - maybe Abbotsford Canajuns?

How about the "Abbotsford Avro". Avro Canada was a aircraft manufacturer that in the early 1950s built the CF-100 Canuck, a twin engine interceptor/fighter jet. The Canuck was the only Canadian designed fighter jet to ever enter into mass production and played an important role with NORAD and NATO during the Cold War years. The CF-100 Canuck eventually evolved into the Avro CF-105 Arrow which became plagued by politics and controversy and never entered production. "LETS GO AV-RO!"

Pilots.

 

I like the dual meaning for the term "pilot". It may be associated with the airport, but it also has a nautical meaning so there is a sea and sky connection.

I picked Aero's although I liked Aviators the best. Unfortunately  Abbotsford Aviators is too much of a mouth full. Too many syllables in the full name. Delta Aviators, Richmond Aviators okay, Abbotsford Aviators too long.

I don't think they'll actually use "Comets" given the heritage of Utica's team using the "Comets" name throughout the years.

Seven syllables, same number as "Montreal Canadiens".

Identical to a junior b (I believe) team already there. I'd rather let them be the Abby Pilots and we pick something new.

Cool, I was unaware of the Junior B team in the area, so yeah let them stick with what they have.

How about the Abbotsford Trappists? It's actually an acknowledgement of the Trappist monks who brew beer in Belgium (Abbey ale) and not the style of play of the hockey team...

Double round aboutabouts are not that tricky - try going around the magic roundabout in Swindon.

or a Dutch roundabout

 Or a turbo

 

albeit this one even dummies can use

or the hell that is bramcote island

 

image.thumb.jpeg.9cf1b22e28d450ca89be692a163c39de.jpeg

 

or these peanuts which are just cool and a nifty safety feature in lower capacity areas (have a few near me)
