What should we name this organization?

What should we name this organization?
Brain storm ideas, and if you really like something, offer it up as a proposal so that we can all vote on it for a straw vote. Multiple proposals allowed but only call a vote for ones you really like!

I like CHEA. Does it sound like CheeYeah? If it does that be good for yelling across a distance like a war call.

Also, I think there should be two names for the different stages of the project... one prior to registering as an organization (so could include "Collective" or "Network" in it) and then one for legally registering under (so could include "Association" or "Cooperative" in the name)

I like the way this one sounds sorta like 'Chaos'

VL

Vanessa Lopez Fri 18 Sep 2015 5:44AM

Is there a way to maybe have people rank the names? Or to line them up and choose that way, like a Doodle Poll or something? Would be cool if Loomio could allow you to make multiple choices at a time I guess... But maybe we can add a link to an external poll to the proposal???

JB

Jacob Bloom Fri 18 Sep 2015 6:21AM

Agh does it not let anybody else make a poll while one is going?

VL

Vanessa Lopez Fri 18 Sep 2015 6:44AM

Doesn't look like it. :/

Hey so heads up, vanessa and I are trying to work around the issue that you can only vote for one at a time. Thinking something along the lines of a doodle poll.
Also I think we might be do for some rebrainstorming/mission/vision group assessment to hammer out our purpose so that we can have as fitting of a name as possible
