"We wanted this name to mean something to each and everyone from Delhi," said Parth Jindal, director of part-owners JSW Sports.
JSW bought a 50 per cent stake in the franchise in March and the revised ownership structure has heralded substantial change in personnel at Delhi.
Ten players have been released from their contracts and three traded to Sunrisers Hyderabad in exchange for India opener Shikhar Dhawan.
