Subject Re: [Cava] Suitable name search - choosing a name
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2019 14:36:01 GMT
Not an objection per se but two comments:

1 - Rainbow is associated with LGBTQ communities and there have been
concerns about it being co-opted for other uses.  For example,
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jul/02/brands-rainbow-queasy-but-bring-lgbt-lives-into-mainstream-skittles-gay

2 - I cannot speak for the LGBTQ community and I support them so I would
say rainbow would be something I would avoid.

In the business world I often recommend people consider made up words. 
Less chance of conflictions.

Regards,
KAM
