Why is there a huge rush to get a name??
If there are "many southerners without a name with which they are satisfied"
then inquire them to vote none of the above. Have this round of votes be a
"primary" to narrow the selections. Continue to have a write in campaign.
If the majority of voters do not like any of the current suggestion, than
Don't force a name because it got more votes than any others(if there are
more "none of the aboves"
Remember, the name chosen will be with us for a long time. Lets make sure
its a popular name.
