I guess I'm wondering if other US people use the word in that meaning. I've never used it that way. I thought it was a casual gathering word. But maybe I'm in the minority.
I agree -- it's a placeholder for now!

I was loathe to vote, because I don't think we need either of the options, but I went with #2 as over here in the UK a Salon is where (predominantly) women gather to get their nails manicured, faces waxed, basically a place of pampering.

Don't worry about the name: "Salon" is just a "place-holder" name - it can be changed if required. The important issue is whether or not a separate forum would be beneficial; personally, I think that it would.

I would normally agree with that, but the word is usually prefaced by "beauty," such as "Beauty Salon." This is in the U.S.

In Peru, the word "Salon" is seemingly everywhere, but again it denotes a place where women (predominately) get pedicures, manicures, faces and legs waxed, and hair fixed in various manners. Occasionally, the word will have "beauty" before "salon." They are on every corner, it seems.

I suppose it's as much to do with my geography and the pattern of language used in my area. When my sister or aunt or a friend is going to a 'Beauty Salon' they'll say something along the lines of:

"I'm going to the Salon"

The prefix of 'Beauty' is all but gone in common language usage around here. The actual Salon's themselves don't have the word Beauty very often either - it's more like <name of proprietor> Salon or <exotic locale> Salon.

I suppose the word conjures up images of blow-dryers, tanning beds and free cups of tea in my head

I voted for #1 as well. I don't care about a name however, it would be nice to add an "o" and make it "Saloon"

I understood 'Salon' in the sense of 'intellectual/cultural gathering' but that doesn't seem to be the norm, so it'd be better to find another name. 'Saloon' wouldn't do for me - in my mind it invokes the things we are trying to be different from.

Yeah, I'm pretty much giving up on the whole idea of Salon. Hope continues to exist that a perfect name will present itself...
