Thank you Skating Leintje for your feedback. We ended up keeping Phoenix Clan as the organization name, just as the symbolism behind it goes with our work. It got catchy by the time we decided on a name, and at least it isn't something that anyone has picked as of yet. There are plenty of organizations who use Phoenix in their name. The one we chose was available, thankfully!
Again though, thank you for your feedback
Well, I personally like the symbol of the phoenix. I even have some poetry on my wall which features a phoenix, so you get no bad comments about that from me.
The 'Clan' part I'm not sure about. Not sure how much 'Clan' is a loaded word (or 'Klan').
Also, clan in general gives a bit of a closed of group feeling to me, rather than a welcoming open group/family feel.
But maybe those are just my connotations...
Hope this helps you.
