Should this tavern have a name?

minutes ago, I wanted to get to this tavern.
Instead, I just typed "tavern" in a google search field by accident and happened to also press enter (why? I dont know! lol)

The search results has an image in the top result of a D&D looking hand-drawn tavern with the hyperlinked text at the bottom to: dungeonsmaster.com (see attachment)
...and with 2 clics, I was at this page: http://dungeonsmaster.com/2010/05/118-tavern-names/
where the author makes a good argument for always naming a tavern, and 118 suggestions for a tavern name.

So my question is: should this tavern have a name? Or is "The Tavern" simply original enough?

Re: Should this tavern have a name?

Considering that a new game starts with the message:
"They say that the Orb of Zot exists deep within this dungeon, but nobody has ever found it."

My idea would be to simply rename it to: Zot's Tavern

Fyi, I just notice that the Board Index is linked to: index.php
and within that structure, the first grouping/branch is: The Tavern.
To remove this ambiguity, renaming 2nd occurrence ("The Tavern") with an original name would possibly remove the ambiguity when referring to the tavern in general.

Yes, it should be named the 'Toad Inn'.

This name resulted from scientific research methods in a 'Crazy Yiuf's Corner' thread.

It is an anagram for 'and into', the Barkeep of the tavern.

Re: Should this tavern have a name?

On my google when I type "tavern crawl" it takes me to this forum instead of teaching me how to do a bar crawl through some good taverns. I think I've been spending too much time here.

Re: Should this tavern have a name?

Some good names on that list, although he's rather harsh on shepards:

The Lost Shepherd
The Lonely Shepherd

Hey, cheer up shepherd, you can always go to

The Dirty Goat

On another note, I don't think it's appropriate to be talking about "The Maiden Head" in a game for teens!
