What's in a Name?

Dark sultry looks. Delicious beard and moustache. Our handsome man provides plenty of intrigue on our way to work. Our HOTT Crew enjoy imagining our featured hotties' professions, and we also enjoy conjuring up an appropriate name for them, too. What might this handsome fellow's name be?

Speaking of names, we're anxiously awaiting the results from the Arlington, MA name change initiative on November 8. Arlington is desiring to be less like Medford and more like Belmont, and feels that "enhancing" the name of the town will provide many benefits. Each name is presumed to attract a specific demographic that the town seeks to grow, and the 3 names on the ballot are:

Rancho Arlington - Appeals to young high-end tech workers from Southern California.
Compare to Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Arlington Farms - Provides an air of exclusivity and New England reserve. Appropriately stuffy.
Compare to Beverly Farms, MA

Arlington-on-the-Minuteman - Combines athleticism and American history in one fell swoop. Compare to Henley-on-Thames, UK

Our favorite is Arlington-on-the-Minuteman as we're big fans of cycling the Minuteman Bikeway and think adding healthy cyclist residents would be a big benefit to the town. If you live in Arlington, MA don't forget to vote for your favorite new name!
