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 
keep looking.

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.
