Best Answer

The only time in Philadelphia Eagles franchise history that they were called by any other name than the Philadelphia Eagles, was in 1943. In 1943, due to many players lost in World War II, the Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers were forced to merge. The official NFL record book refers to the team as "Phil-Pitt". The team was nicknamed "Steagles".
