To be fair and honest, fighting about names is a lost cause in any WG.  
The only process I've seen work for this is Survivor Voting whereby  
all names are listed, people vote for the one the hate most, and one  
is eliminated at each turn until only one is left. If you want to  
change the names I'd suggest you organise that  otherwise it'll just  
be one long bike-shed discussion.
