Eyeballing Brickyard Kennedy...so between 1895 and 1896, Brooklyn went from 'Grooms' to 'Bridegrooms'. Setting aside that these are both incredibly silly names for a baseball team, was this an official change or just something weird in the database? Please don't tell me there was a meeting in the winter of 1895 where someone said "Yeah, Grooms is great but it's not on-the-nose enough. Let's make it Bridegrooms".
