What's in a name?

Lots of comments on Miami blogs about the new performing arts center, which has a new name, a few months before it opens: donations from Carnival Cruise Lines and the Knight Foundation come with naming rights, so the whole complex will be called the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts. 'Tacky', say some, but I don't know, sounds like a fun place to be.

The concert hall, which was originally to be named for Carnival, is now the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall.

The Sanford & Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House name stays the same.

All this is not to be confused with the Carnival Center opening soon in St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands.
