The White Sox were enfranchised in 1894 and were known then as the Sioux City Corn Huskers, from there they moved to St. Paul and eventually settled on Chicago's South Side in 1900. By this point they were called the White Stockings. Prior to 1901 The White Sox were a part of the 'Western League' (a minor league) which became the 'American League' (still a minor league until 1901) In 1901 the American League declared itself a part ofand the White Stockings (Sox) were a charter member of the new league. The White Stockings won the very first A.L. Pennant in 1901 and Chicago Tribune sports writers almost immediately began shortening the name White Stockings to White Sox. The team adopted the shortened name OFFICIALLY in 1904; Four years AHEAD of the Boston Red Sox who were known as the Boston Americans until 1908.Answer
Sox are socks, as in, to keep your feet warm, and the baseball team based in Chicago wore white ones. (from ENGLISHangel)
The name White Sox came from sports writers from the Chicago Tribune who used the term "Sox" as a shortened version of their original name: The Chicago White Stockings. The White Sox are one of the original teams of the American League founded in 1901. and the White Stockings was changed to the White Sox by 1904. The Red Sox were originally the Boston Americans and did not adopt the name Red Sox until 1908. Therefore, The White Sox are the ORIGINAL Sox team. Not The Red Sox.
The Chicago White Sox is the teams official name. They, as you may already know are member of the MLB; Major League Baseball. They were originally known as the (Chicago) White Stockings from 1900-1903, this name would soon be shortened from "Stockings" to Sox, pronounced as socks, which obviously is what they were going for in their choosing of their name. The name Chicago Sox would be more of a nick name as is the "Shy-sox," and the "South siders" or even the "Black Sox," (see Black Sox Scandal,) rather than the actual name.
