Naming our affiliate
 
We have submitted 5 names that have been declined, anyone have any idea how they decide what is accepted or not? There are many affiliates out there with similar names, IE: CrossFit Force, CrossFit 1 Force, CrossFit Ocean Beach, CrossFit Ocean Isle Beach. Everything we submitted they say is too close to another name...suggestions?!?!

Use the thesaurus. Break out a map. Write down everything and then narrow it to the ones you like and resubmit.
Crossfit 305 seems to be "hogging" two names, that and "little river". Ask HQ if "Crossfit Little River" is actually available...

Grand Strand Crossfit! If you're located on 17, that'd be perfect!

There already is a CrossFit Grand Strand as well as CrossFit North Myrtle Beach
located in Little River.

That's too bad! Hmm...if you guys are in North Myrtle Beach you could stick with your street name or something? Like Ocean Ave Crossfit or something. I will definitely have to stop in when I go on my annual trip to M.B.!

I'm guessing CrossFit Grande Dunes is already taken?

+1. That's what I'm talking about! Catchy name (Grande Dunes Crossfit or vice versa) and I've been to Myrtle Beach enough to know exactly where you're located. Good call Adam.

Names are getting so much harder now - I don't envy new affiliates starting out trying to get names they want and can be approved for sure. are there any other major landmarks around you?
