The Baltimore Ravens were named after Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven"
Taken from Wikipedia:
The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The team is a member of the AFC North Division of the National Football League.
The team originated in 1996 when then-owner of the Cleveland Browns, Art Modell, relocated the franchise to Baltimore. The franchise was renamed and legally treated as a new entity (or expansion team) upon moving to Baltimore. The team's name was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's poem The Raven, as Poe lived for a time in Baltimore, died there in 1849, and is buried there.

Poe's best known fiction works are Gothic, a genre he followed to appease the public taste. His most recurring themes deal with questions of death, including its physical signs, the effects of decomposition, concerns of premature burial, the reanimation of the dead, and mourning.
