Or how about Rome, VA or Jersualem, VA since those are also cities of seven hills.
Although Jersualem was once a town in VA. It's where Nat Turner was hanged for leading a slave rebellion. Yeah, that probably wouldn't be a good idea.

Doubt if there will ever be a name change. Just so much stupidity, but no surprise to see Jerry jump in.

Lake City, TN changed their name to Rocky Top, TN a few years back. They had a population of 1800 and it cost them $40,000 just to change all the signs around town. That doesn't include letter head, business cards, police decals, etc.

Changing a name is ridiculously expensive.

Liberty University
University of Lynchburg --> University of Liberty
Virginia University of Lynchburg --> Virginia University of Liberty
Which will prompt JFJR to change the name of our great school to Falwell U.
Then when people ask where I got my degree, I can say FU

How about Seven Hills, Virginia. Has a nice ring to it. I can hear it now. The Ole Miss Rebels are traveling to Seven Hills Virginia to face the Liberty Flames. Actually Ole Miss might want to think about a new team name asap!
Oh that storm is coming for Ole Miss, not a matter of if at this point its when. They could get ahead of it and go the Star Wars rebel route, maybe give their shark mascot a lightsaber or something!
Doubt they could even get the rights for anything Star Wars related.

And lest not forget all the pains in the jerk it will cost for everyone that lives or owns a business here. They would have to change their mailing address everywhere.
