OPO - OPORTUNIDADE
On 04 Jan 2016 (review, placemats) “Ud” was used for Unidade. It seems much more sensible to emphasise the part of the name that isn’t “Porto”.

The ‘B’ has to be a capital, which would clash with Dow Bomfim. So I’d prefer “DBy” or “DrB”.

What about DoB? DBy makes me initially think Dow <something>. I know that doesn’t automatically follow...we have DG for Duff Gordon, but DoB avoids any question? As does DrB or course...

No objection to DoB from me. I say neither worse nor better than DrB. Others?

Prefer DrB for clearer differentiation from Dow Bonfim.

I slightly prefer "DoB" aesthetically, but am convinced by Phil's argument for differentiation from Dow Bomfim. So I vote "DrB" also.

("Douro" is pronounced closer to Dur-Oh than to Do-Row, so the 'r' does not seem significant to me to the pronunciation.)

Ditto. Which is a majority.


It seems that the majority prefer:
Ud = O-Port-Unidade = O-Pᴏʀᴛ-Uɴɪᴅᴀᴅᴇ
ChR = Churchill Quinta do Rio
DrB = Douro Boys

Axel, Mike, and Simon have been PM’d asking for non-disagreement.

¿OOI, where is Churchill’s Quinta do Rio?

Non-disagreement compliance assured. Always good to look at all the options though.
