WWI era Name Suggestions for Kitchener

I heard it from Trevor Haldenby who told it to Darren Wershler, who tracked it down and put it up on his blog.

There's this document floating around about the different names that were being considered for Kitchener, then called Berlin, around WWI. And some of the suggestions are pretty effing badass.

Document sourced here.

I almost wish I was living in the industrial nightmare of Factoria, black streets and black rain. Trenchcoats and pain. Bauhaus instead of Hans haus.

Which is your favourite?


  1. Wow! I can't believe they didn't go with Imperial City! That would have been badass to the max!
