Hi ranchers,

Can you help to choose a suitable name for study abroad (the newly opened training center)?

Thanks in advance

A name for what? I don't understand the question.

What about "MingNong", "PrinkGlip", or "TroppyPops"?

No good? Perhaps it's because you've told us absolutely nothing about your company. Who are you? Where are you? What do you do? Why do you do it? You must have had some ideas yourself, share them.

You posted in Meaningless Drivel forum, where people post questions which are sort of meaningless. Well, you're very close to.
If your intense were to get sort of serious suggestions, I'd say add some more information, what are the studies about and other might important information.

i.e., please suggest names for a study center, which are meant to:
  • operate in Europe
  • oriented for non European students
  • offer various courses
  • help to find accommodation
  • ...
  • etc

    I would go for the name: "Study abroad centre".

    More recently in our office we gave our meeting rooms 'cute' names. Now I have to go to mount Fuji. I have no idea where that is... I have to look at the map to see that it is in the south wing on the second floor. I used to have that clearer instruction in my calendar, but now it says, go to mount Fuji, go to mount Everest, go to K2, go to Vaalserberg, and have your scrum thingie. I getting a little tired using the map all the time.

    At least you have a map. In my previous job we worked in a 4-story building with no map. I had a pretty good sense of where the conference rooms on my floor were, but when a meeting was on anther floor, I'd just have to wander around until I found the meeting.

    That said, I'm all for using fun and whimsical names for conference rooms. Just publish a blasted map!

    I do not like it Bear. Doing these cute things is too 'intimate', 'fun' or 'casual'. I am not sure how to express it in English. I like to keep some professional distance to my coworkers. Which has brought me in conflict with the management a few times, but I just do not like it. Work is work, private is private. Work is for making money, private is for spending it and having fun. You'll never see me coming to the company picknick for example volutarily. And if I socialize at work, it's mostly with girls.. I am just weird in this.

    My organisation gives a lot of its rooms the names of local towns, which is already confusing: if somebody says we've got a meeting in Cardiff at 13:00, do I need to drive or get the train? We don't have an overall site map, but there are partial floor maps in the stairwells which indicate room numbers for some (not all) of the rooms on that floor. Unfortunately, the maps don't have the room names.

    Luckily, I don't like meetings anyway, so this is kind of a self-resolving issue...
