The Atlanta Braves haven't always been in atlanta or gone by the name of the Braves, so my question is how many times have they changed their names, what were the other names they used, and what years did they go by these names?


Atlanta Braves
1966 - present

Milwaukee Braves
1953 - 1965

Boston Braves
1941 - 1952

Boston Bees
1936 - 1940

Boston Braves
1912 - 1935

Boston Rustlers
1911 - 1911

Boston Doves
1907 - 1910

Boston Beaneaters
1883 - 1906

Boston Red Caps
1876 - 1882

They changed their name 8 times.

I didnt know Boston had two teams in the early 1900's.
