At Wednesday's announcement, FFA chief executive Ben Buckley revealed the club's name, colours and badge would be left to the public to decide, much like Melbourne Heart did two years ago prior to their introduction to the A-League.
Subsequently there has been widespread discussion about the team name and Goal.com decided to use its Social Networks to grab some opinions. We've canvassed the best ones and put them together in this feature, where we're asking readers to vote on their favourite in our poll too.
Here's the best suggestions:

Western Sydney Football Club. At least with this everyone will like it.. instead of people saying I hate Rovers, Wanderers..
Andrew French via Twitter
Gotta admit, I really like the Wanderers name. Just seems fitting, don't know why..

I agree, but it seems all the fans on the forum are arguing about the name, Wanderers is a great name

Should probably be nicknamed after a local animal or something. Nothing stupid like "Thunder" or Rovers etc.
