For me there are a few reasons to take this step.

1. The northern region was not all that long ago redefined by the Kingdom 
combining parts of the former western region. Now that the turmoil of those 
changes have settled and there is a renewed sense of peace, prosperity, and 
unity in the reformed North I think that deserves a new name to recognize that 
2. As Ivo said there is a lot of history with the name Nordsteorra and the 
Northern Region and a lot of it is not good. We are in a good place as a region,

3. Giving a region of a Kingdom a name is a perfectly period geographical thing 
to do, look at France and Germany as examples, there is also precedence for it 
in the SCA with Midrealm having regional names. Having a name other than a

accurate aspect to this game we all play. So having a name makes the concept of 
a region have a more period feel if that region has a name other than the 
direction it is located in.
