Despite speaking the same language some words mean different things over there. I know, right?

Here's an idea, how about letting businesses use whatever name they wish, and if people are offended they can chose not to spend their money there.

Yep, i should be allowed to name my company the Ministry Of Transport, or Cancer Research Charity, or the Accredited Plumbing Company, or the Norfolk Auditor General etc etc.

Most of the restricted list (no names are outright banned, some need a little more hoops to jump through) are there to prevent misunderstanding or outright fraud.

Yes, because with names like Robotdick, Stylish biatch, Sugartits, Manwhore and Cocktease, there's the real chance people will confuse them with the actual government office of the same name.

We have a Ball's Deep Steam that does carpet cleaning. Well it's now called Ball Deep Steam. When I first noticed it I thought "yeah, that's a clever name" but since they dropped the 's I now think " damn, somebody told them" .
