From the Bad, Bad Names file, via Michael at Popwink, comes this li'l stinker:
The 26-year-old Virginia Beach Symphony Orchestra, preparing for a November move to larger digs and tired of being confused with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, has changed its name to (drumroll, clash of cymbals, kazoo): Symphonicity.
That's as in "symphony" plus "city." With a fermata over the "i," so you absolutely get the musical association.
I wish we could blame this blenderized bizzarerie on do-it-yourselfers, but in fact the orchestra hired an agency, HCD Advertising & Public Relations, to do the deed. "It's a $50 word, that's for sure," HCD executive VP Dan Downing told the local paper, the Virginian-Pilot. (Oh, now I get it: the orchestra paid HCD only $50 for its services.) "But [Downing continued] it's something that you see it, you don't forget it."
If you can figure out how to pronounce it.
I rather prefer Michael's list of alternative names, of which my current favorite is Philharmonicommunity.
