Why are the Chicago sox called White Sox?

The Chicago White Sox is the teams official name. They, as you may already know are member of the MLB; Major League Baseball. They were originally known as the (Chicago) White Stockings from 1900-1903, this name would soon be shortened from "Stockings" to Sox, pronounced as socks, which obviously is what they were going for in their choosing of their name. The name Chicago Sox would be more of a nick name as is the "Shy-sox," and the "South siders" or even the "Black Sox," (see Black Sox Scandal,) rather than the actual name.
