no it's not. I would call it an improvement over their prior name which was the Kansas city Wizards. I do think it's unoriginal, but it's not the worst.
i should point out that the "eurofication" of MLS teams via their names is a little lame. In some cases very lame - most obvious example being Real Salt Lake. Even Toronto FC is an attempt at this, but i don't mind it because at least we speak English in Toronto.
Kansas city would have been much smarter to have gone with Kansas City Athletic or something - which would have at least been a play on the Kansas city athletics - you know some historical relevence.
