Default Help with a name

About a year ago, we started a charitable organization called "Reel Life Adventures" (www.ReelLifeAdventures.org) to provide an avenue for the sport fishing industry to give back to the impoverished areas surroundingsome of the topdestinations in the world. Many of you may have visitedour site or seen us at the MBGFC's Labor DayTournament. Anyway, it now looks like we are beingforced to change our name. A young attorney who is soon moving to the area hastrademarked the terms "Reel Life" for his clothing line and will not allow us to continue. This is my mistake and very unfortunate. I was eager to get startedandfailed to check into all of the legalities of the name. Now itwill cost us thousandsthat would have otherwise gone to our orphanage project in the Dominican Republic. (changing our LLC, 501c-3, website, business cards, brochures, banners, inventory of t-shirts, hats, etc, etc...)

Anyway,we would greatly appreciate any suggestions for a new name!

Probably the easiest thing would be tochange the Reel to Real and become "Real Life Adventures." The debate we are now havingis whether tochange the name to somethingmore descriptive of what we do vs. something catchy that attracts interest. Other than fundraising for orphanages and humanitarian efforts, one of our othermain objectives is to attract others who enjoy sport fishing to join uson"AdventureTrips" tohelp others while enjoying some of the world's bestblue water fishing.

Any thoughts???????

Thanks for the responses. We are open to completely changing the name if someone comes up unique and original. We have hats and t-shirts with our logo, which was donated by artist Larry Rackley, so the name is fairly important... something "cool" that folkswould want to wear. The items are tagged with abrochure detailing what we do and states thatproceeds will go to fund the charity. People seem to be intrigued by this and are buying the items.

Thanks again!!
