I have to say that no matter what, you will never please anyone and
there will always be those people that are negative about this process. I
applaud the hard work and the unbiased attitudes of everyone involved in the
process of producing a ballot. It may be that if the ballot comes back "none
of the above", then we need to try again to come up with a selection of
names to pick from.
I agree that something new and deciding on it can be very frightening to
people. Some will be afraid that it will lead to more problems.

Perhaps we need to define what having a regional name is for. A lot of
people see this as a lead into a dreaded subject. Maybe pointing out that
the Northern region has a separate name and has had one for whatever length
of time would do much to calm some fears.
