I'll propose this idea to them... that might look kinda neat, actually.

For purposes of conflict checking, I found lots of "* White *" group names,
and no "* Shark *" group names, and no prior existance of "White Shark" as
part of any other name. There were also no "White (insert type of fish)" names
either or anything I considered similar in sound to "Shark". I'm tentively
saying 'free of conflict', but leave it to more expert judgement then my own.
