List of Suggestions of Names
This list of names offers us insight into the mentality of the era and of the special committee appointed by the city council of Berlin to find a new name for the municipality. Many names are patriotic such as "King George" and "Prince Edward." Other names reflect a desire to break from tradition with creations such as "Ontacan." Still other suggestions embrace industry and progress like "Industria," "Hydropolis," or "Hydro City." It is interesting to note that the list of proposed names does not include Kitchener the eventual choice for the city.
