Some residents of South Jersey have often pondered the possibility of the southern part of New Jersey splitting off and becoming it's own state.

One of the questions is: Where do you draw the line?

That question is for another time.

The question to ponder now is this: What do we call this new state.

"South Jersey" seems like a likely choice, but a Reddit user came up with an interesting question the other day:

If South Jersey were to become a state, and couldn’t keep the name New Jersey, or be called South Jersey what do you think the State should be called? from r/SouthJersey

Hmmm. What do you thing about them apples?

Reddit users came up with some interesting ideas:

1. Hidden Leaf Village. (Yeah, I don't get it either)

2. Flavortown (Apparently submitted by someone named Guy F.)

3. Wawa-Land (Works for me!)

4. Pork Roll Oasis (Um, all this pork roll stuff is a little much, no?)

5. North Florida

6. Atlantic City (So, Atlantic City - the city - would be Atlantic City, Atlantic City)

7. Wharton (like the state forest)

8. Pine Barrens

9. New Delco (not my favorite....)

10. New Jermany

11. New Jerusalem

12. New Piney
