Let's see;

Maple Leafs: essentially plant droppings
Blue Jays: a nuisance bird, a pest
FC: no idea what that means
Raptors: rocks that used to be predators with sharp teeth

I like that last one the best! See it ain't that hard.

Again…I'm NOT in favour of changing the team's name, however, I'm surprised there hasn't been a (major) Toronto sports team named the toros. It would work, stylistically, with alliteration-wise and with the first four letters of the city.

I think I googled it once an there was a soccer team or something that had that name, but I always thought it would be cool.

It was chosen similar to how the Raptors were named in a "name the team contest". The present owners "Labatts" picked it because it sounded like on of there more popular beer products.
