If you have to explain who LA are, then you're going to have to do it
under ANY name, and this above argument of yours seems a bit, well,
desperate and clutching for those straws, in your argument for your
constant push for a name change.

and anybody who writes a cheque to any organisation, will want to know
all about who they are supporting.
the only way that will ever be got around, is for  X group to get their
own bank account, so they are sending X group the money directly.
