    Valve names them with short, but powerful names based on their theme. Dustbowl. Goldrush. Both important early 1900's concepts. Well. Granary. Gravelpit. Very short, simple, and sweet descriptions of the map environments.

    I have trouble naming my maps. Nothing seems to be the same as Valve's awesomeness.

    Try looking at the area in your map you're most proud of, or the central focus or setting of the map, and use something related to that. My map has a big warehouse in the middle of it. My name for it? cp_warehouse.
