Re: Affiliate Name

What makes HQ deny affiliate names? Seems pretty common. I'm nervous about asking for the name I want now lol

Re: Affiliate Name

Maybe a conjunction of terms: lion + legionarius = Crossfit Lionarius

An army of lions...

Basically, it's no continents, countries, provinces, regions, states, counties, large cities, religious references, movie names, celebrity names, personal names, trademarked names, government agencies, or names that are already taken. As long as no one else has it or has applied for it, and it's a name we will license, you'll be good to go

That's what the email said

So no large cities, or regions? That goes against what some of the locals have. CF Poughkeepsie, CF New Windsor etc. Makes me think with my luck I'll be out. There's also a CF NYC. That's as big as it gets lol.

NYC was probably before they went to the standards they have.

The other two are not really "large cities" in the sense they mean, I don't think.
