Once again I realize how absolutely out of the loop (heh) I am when it comes to the wiki; I wasn't aware the place was being called "Water Pantheon" at all. I do agree though that it's extremely unfitting.

To propose alternatives: The place could be named something including the word "Mandir", which is a Hindu temple of worship (however basically just the Hindu equivalent to a pantheon so technically not very fitting either), OR, to make things more precise, I would propose a name like "Murti passage" or "Murti gate". A murti being "an image, statue or idol of a deity or person in Indian culture". So this would cover the statue of Krishna (and the cat) as well as the central structure of the place being the gate we have to open to proceed.

Murti Passage sounds all right to my ears.

Saving more thoughts on this for later, but for now, how many people know the word "murti"? That's not exactly a common word. (Remember how many people don't remember "Saraswati"...)

Eh, yeah granted. But in terms of accuracy I think this isn't bad.

I doubt saying the word isn't common really matters... Maybe that is because I could barley speak English until my 12th year... Meh.

I think the argument is more that the name wouldn't be memorable enough for people to search for/reference it. If you want to find the location or talk about it it's likely no-one would know what the feck you're talking about at first. Or be able to recall it.

This right here.

However in that same stream you talk about the argument that "people can get used to change" and also bring up using redirects for some amount of time to help with transition.
