People Stop Ruining the Avonlea name

I noticed that every since Anne of Green Gables came out, people have been naming babies Avonlea. Anybody know why this is? Avonlea is a place people, and a place very dear to us. I mean, they don't name a baby "King Barn."

What if these kids named Avonlea end up in jail or join a terrorist group. Now because of the selfishness of these parents, the name will be damaged goods.

Also, why is everyone naming apartment complexes, parks, condos, housing communities Avonlea? Don't they realize their incorporating our Avonlea and ruining the name!! When Hetty raised her glass at the end and said we always have a place to come home to, she was talking about OUR AVONLEA, and not some random trailer park.

Avonlea is an awesome name created by the great writer Lucy Maud Montgomery and yet these greedy and selfish people are soiling it!

What's next, the Avonlea Motel? The Avonlea dump? Stop it already. Who's with me?

I have noticed that more people and things have been named Avonlea lately, probably due to the popularity of Sullivan's films. It has pushed my SEO Google rankings down for sure.

I believe there's one instance where the name Avonlea was removed from something. From what I remember, the 1987 mini-series was originally titled "Anne of Avonlea". Then, for reasons I'm not certain about, Avonlea was taken out of the title and it was re-branded "Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel."

You're right, original airings had Avonlea in the title. Future DVD releases and airings removed it.

There's also a singer named Avonlea. Just did a local Google search and there was an Avonlea Park, An Avonlea Inn, and an Avonlea Dental Clinic.

We probably will see something like an Avonlea Motel or Avonlea Strip club in the future. L.M. Montgomery would be rolling in her grave with the way her beloved work is being commercialized.:sick:
