Dragons, BattleHawks, Guardians and Defenders are some of the newest professional football team nicknames.

On Wednesday, the XFL, which will start play in February 2020, unveiled the names and logos for all eight teams.

The teams are based in Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Tampa, Fla., and Washington D.C.

The nicknames are a combination of unique and bland, and the initial reaction seems to be negative.

Here are the videos the XFL shared on Twitter with each franchise’s nickname and logo.
