Tim Mara, the original owner of the New York Giants in 1925, named his team after the National League MLB Giants who were very popular at
the time. This was an era when baseball was by far the most popular sport in the United States, and Mara wanted to capitalize on the name equity
that the local MLB franchise had entrenched in the locals.
So how did the New York baseball Giants get their name? They were named after all of the giant buildings sprouting up in New York City.
