Gary Zill changed the name. He also told me they’re renaming ‘Marlys’ to “All Summer” or “Summer-long” or something like that.

I'm happy on behalf of Marlys. Now she can wait for a better mango to carry her name.

It kinda makes sense from a marketing perspective.  It'll just have two names now amongst the cognoscenti, same as PPK/Lemon Meringue.  Worst name change was Young to Tebow!  Did the guy even want a mango named after him??

maybe every mango should have 2 or 3 names.

wikipedia:
Triple sec, (meaning "Triple distilled")  is a strong, sweet orange flavored liqueur.
I keep thinking SEC (South Eastern Conference) when I see Sec or the word... secretary.

Name change for Sales?
Liqueur.... Triple..... = possible sales
But for hog wild sales... sounds like a possible typo.....   The c should probably be a xxx   8)

Sounds more of a marketing strategy to appeal more to the public. I don’t like name changes either (like Fairchild Ruby/J12/Super Julie) but I understand why whether it be because of confusion of similarities in names or to better market other varieties.
I’m still going to call it Seacrest 😆 just like I call “Super Julie” J12 still.. & taste is definitely different for each person.. some have it in there top 10, I personally would put it in the pile of just another okay mango that would hold me over if there weren’t other varieties of my top favorites available.

I remember a Julie but never got a chance to find out if she was super... But Super Julie is a name to remember.

I think most buyers like female names over male and also on their Alexa, google voice, and various GPS.

For a guys name to be favorable it usually needs to be well known and liked by many (no one likes everyone). Thus Tebow is a far far far better name than Young as both sound like Guys names and only Tebow is well known & liked by many in the public... Sorry, but it's a fact with the general lay population... especially in Florida...

For Sales... Female Names > Male Names (except superstars, performers, politicians, athletes, etc. and Young is not even close to Tebow name recognition quality).

Clinton or Trump Mango... Both would sell & be easy to remember; many have said Trump is very easy to remember...... The Presidential line of Mangos... Perhaps even a Presidential Pardon list if it keeps growing and gets more publicity... lol ... A who got fired list... & on & on we go.... lol

Put Clinton Mango at one end of yard & Trump Mango at other... Other Dem mangos around Clinton & Repub named mangos around Trump in the yard. Walk the yard & tell people we are crossing (or switching) from Republican to Democratic grounds etc. etc.... Let people try both mangos & other Dems & Repubs. and then ask which tasted better Clinton or Trump?   just amused..... lol ... (A joke son, I say a Joke...I would NOT ask that question if mangos were named as described)

I liked the mango name Venus and I'm not sure if picked for planets or Greek Gods/Goddesses. I would suggest using the popular mythology Greek Gods/Goddesses as it would be educational as often required reading in school and unlikely offensive. It would also be easy to look over the Greek Gods/Goddesses list to jog the memory & remember the mango name vs. the long long list of possible human names.  Link:::  https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/gods/
https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/goddesses/
https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/heroes/
https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/creatures/
The creatures would also be cool names Ex. Cyclopes, Pegasus, Sirens, Minotaur, Medusa, etc. etc. etc.

Opinions?  For ease of remembering mango names, this might be the best solution if mangos were named off a well known or easily accessed list.
