Then

Chronicle
Inquirer
and Globe


P.S. Dallas Morning News? Are you kidding me, such a lame name. What if I want to read it at night? ha Ha
At least it is original, the name Times, Globe and Chronicle are used so often. There was two major newspapers the Dallas Times Herald and The Dallas Morning News, but in 1991 The Dallas Morning News bought out Dallas Times Herald and now it is the only major newspaper in the Dallas area.

I voted for the Boston Globe because it sounds like something from a comic book, it makes me think of Superman and the Daily Planet. However, my favorite newspaper name, that I'm surprised nobody's mentioned yet, is the San Jose Mercury. When Milwaukee had 2 newspapers back in the day, one was the Milwaukee Sentinel (cool) and the other was the Milwaukee Journal (meh). Then they merged in the early 90's and became the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, which is lame IMO.

That's exactly how the Atlanta Journal-Constitution got it's name.

Most papers with "two names" got them the same way. The city/area once had a morning paper and a separately delivered evening paper - and eventually they merged into one daily paper.

From Wiki:
The AJC, as it is called, is the flagship publication of Cox Enterprises. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the result of the merger between The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution. The staff was combined in 1982. Separate delivery of the morning Constitution and afternoon Journal ended in 2001.[2]

I go with Seattle's old Post-Intelligencer too.

I also really like the Eugene (Oregon) Register-Guard. The Portland Oregonian is a quaint name. Out of the ones on the list? I have a hard time choosing between the Journal-Constitution (badass) and the Plain Dealer (hilariously awesome).
