How does a Grotto obtain it's name and what is the criteria?

Originally all Grotto names were to be of Persian character derivation. There is a list of acceptable names at our SC Office. The name selected must be approved by the Grand Monarch.

At this time, there is consideration taken on names relevant to current trends. This issue will be discussed at our 2012 Supreme Council Session in July.
