Come up with your own name for Edmonton's new arena

The Edmonton Oilers and Rogers Communication announced the new name for the city's downtown arena Tuesday, but for many the name, Rogers Place, fell flat.

The Edmonton Oilers and Rogers Communication announced the new name for the city's downtown arena Tuesday.

But for many the name, Rogers Place, fell flat or was too similar to Rogers Centre in Toronto and Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

So we invite you to come up with your own name for what should be an iconic building for our city, keeping in mind that Rogers is paying the freight.

We've put together a few to get you started. Be sure to tweet your creation to @CBCEdmonton or email us at webedmonton@cbc.ca and we'll put up some of our favourites.

Enter your arena name in the field below and it will appear over the image. Keep them short — 14 characters maximum.
