Fancy names[edit]

I'm from the northern tip of the region (near Dreux) and it's true that the name has been criticized and some replacement spoken of. Centre Val de Loire is indeed used occasionally (example : [1]), but I've never heard or read about replacing it with Cher-Berry or Pays de la Gaul (sic - it's Gaule in French, folks). Both seem quite unlikely ; there is a Cher department in the region, indeed in the historical province of Berry, but this would match only the region's southern part ; as for the second, though attempted revival of grotesquely antiquated names for French regions is not entirely unheard of, I can hardly imagine a Frenchman not smiling at the very idea... and it wouldn't be very specific, would it? I strongly suspect these are made up names added to Wikipedia just for fun. Do not re-add them without a reference. Bertrand Bellet (talk) 13:30, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
