((Alternatively you could do what we did when trying to find a name for the 1991 bid: try other words associated with SF but not having the magic letters CON in them. Shortlisted names included: Criterion, Eureka, Fandom, and Necronomicon. (Yes, I know it has CON but we liked the idea of the chairman being called the Necromancer!). Perhaps someone could list names with ENTION...? My spellchecker can't do that sort of thing.))
