How did Florida Miami marlins get their name?
Originally, in 1992, team owner Wayne Huizenga had two choices for his team Florida/Miami Marlins/Flamingos. He first tackled the location part, the reason Huizenga used Florida (at first) for the team name was because he believed it would attract a broader fan-base from people all over Florida (only baseball in Florida at time). Then the actually name was taken care of. Support was growing for the name of Marlins since old minor league clubs were called the Miami Marlins after Florida's most popular deep water fish. Huizenga decided to keep the name Marlins again to create a fan-base
