Benefits of a brand are many:
  • Recognition
  • Value
  • Uniqueness
  • etc
When when some forgotten back of the black stump place was renamed the "Gold Coast" it added value to this well know Australian place name brand.

Waterman could be anywhere. When the Geographical Place Names Committee took the "Bay" out of Waterman's Bay they took a sense of ocean side place away from (devalued) property owners and inhabitants of this wonderful Perth suburb. I doubt people of Peppermint Grove would lay down without a fight if the Geographical Place Names Committee tried to take the Grove out of Peppermint Grove.
