Chihuahuas have no idea that they're Small Dogs: they will take on anything that looks like a threat, even if that anything is five times their size. I think it's a swell name.

Another team in the Padres system, the Lake Elsinore Storm, at one time adopted the horrible new name "Anaheim / Los Angeles / San Diego Storm of Lake Elsinore". This was supposed to be good for business. I don't know when they changed it back. http://oursportscentral.com/services/releases/?id=3140924

Can't be any worse than the Mexican hairless dog, i.e., Xoloitzcuintle, the mascot of the perfectly reputable Tijuana football (soccer) team. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_Tijuana.
