A site claiming to be Robert Allbritton’s new local D.C. project headed up by Jim Brady has finally come up with a name: “TBD”.

Seriously, that’s the alleged name.

An excerpt:
We won’t go into the list of names that we almost chose, the names we considered but laughed down or the reasons we rejected them.

We came very close to securing a name more than once, but each time an obstacle – a divided staff, a greedy domain holder, a trademark problem – blocked the way.

In a mixture of humor and frustration, Editor Erik Wemple began signing his emails, “Editor, TBD.com.”
