I have just read your last post, and my over-
riding first impression is..."how high-handed of them!"-although they obviously have a function to perform, and must be on the lookout for the occasional unsuitable name out of the lyrical mind of the occasional Anneke-I still have visions of crusty Golden whatevers swirling around in my mind-but still, the point is you are willing to invest your time and money into their Chamber; it seems that barring the odd really unsuitable or racist name, it is NOT APPROPRIATE for them to censor your choices of names. Moreover, as Anneke has so-rightly pointed out, people will "latch" onto your enterprise's name, make it their own, as it were, and if you really put a lot of thought into it, and come up with a moniker that everyone loves, with different groups having their own special name for it, well, this could be the diff between success or failure for your fledgling little bakery!
I thought Underground Railroad naturally lent itself to many groups of clients, and of course, I romanticize the historical aspects of this because I am Canadian and don't perhaps understand it all that well, but I live in the tourist area of a large Canadian city, surrounded by horse-drawn carriages, stone walls etc. (my loft is 18th Century stone) and there is NO lack of AMERICAN tourists here, making it their own!!
If you feel comfortable with a name-ANY name-
then stick to your guns.
Good luck with your meetings.
:D :D :D
