A contest was held to decide on a new name for the team. The winning name, chosen by Walter Stalberg, was the " 76ers ". The name comes from the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776. Newspaper writers liked the name because it was easily shortened to " Sixers " in headlines.
