Could This Be the New Name For the Las Vegas 51s?

Will we be hearing that the "Las Vegas 51s" have changed their name to the "Las Vegas Aviators" somewhat soon? Blogger Clark Rasmussen, founder of the website, did some sleuthing and discovered that The Howard Hughes Corporation, owner of the 51s and the new stadium that's being built in Summerlin, registered 16 new domains on June 6th. The domains include,, and many more. 

Social media handles were also claimed, including @lvaviators on Twitter, TheLasVegasAviators on Facebook, and @lasvegasaviators on Instagram. 

Could this be the new name for the team that will be announced at a later day? Or was all this done to distract us from a different name that they are working on?

You can read Clark Rasmussen's full breakdown of his findings in his blog post linked below.
