What's in a name?
Welcome to the Eiffel Metal Stand.

I live on an island frequented by visitors and I operate a business that creates original fabric art. Every so often I see the informal re-naming of our landmarks in blog posts, marketing materials and published articles by persons who have visited or intend to.

I recently came across a group who conducted a wellness seminar at one of the local hotels. On their web page they took the time to outline the skills and experience of those leading the workshops, they detailed how to travel, when to arrive, what to expect while on the island, then having done all that they pointed out that they will be going to Saddle Ridge for fantastic panoramic views. Hold on! There is no place called Saddle Ridge on my island.

As a maker of art I often exercise artistic license, so I’m okay with freestyling, but don’t mess with the name in your printed communication!

Hi, my name is Deborah Tyrell. With a small team I make fabric art as memory gifts of your stay on the 36 square mile island of Nevis, sister island to St. Kitts. I also coordinate the Charlestown Gallery where you will find the works of all the artists of Nevis.

Tell me what you think about people renaming the public places where you live.
