The only nick name the organization has had is the Patriots. The team was originally known as the Boston Patriots The team was renamed the New England Patriots in 1971.

They got the name from England. (HISTORY CHECK) When America went to war with England to gain independence, England fought under the nickname "The Patriots" (hints the name "New England Patriots"). Funny how stuff like that works, huh?

This is the same name that the team uses today.
