Oh snap. I like that one. It's logical, catchy, and it parodies the names of professional editorials. The Royal Review has my vote (thus far).

I've been informed that we're to avoid the word "royal" in the name because it's frowned upon by actual monarchies :(

So vote again. My alternate suggestion is The Penguin Review.

They can't stop you from including 'Royal' in the title. It's too vague a word for them to monopolise. It's like saying 'you can't include president'.

Besides, even if they do put a bounty on your head, You're in Canada. Canada doesn't care.

But seriously, royal should be completely fine. Even if such a law/rule existed, it wouldn't be able to be enforced online.

It seems to be a big thing in the british monarchy. So all the british "commonwealth realms" may also be subject to the rule.

United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu[224]

Basically the idea is they don't want people to think we have some relation to the royal family.
