Greetings, Rosie P.! I am Queen Alainna of 2003, co-founder of the original Krewe of Good Times. Pink Myztique is definitely steering you in the right direction with regard to NOT copying another krewe's name. Since you asked about the issue in the first place, you obviously care about being courteous-- and original. I was told (by a board member) that two krewes cannot have the exact same name. A new krewe copied our name a couple of years ago, and the duplication has caused problems at the drivers' meeting (with float numbers), at the judges' bribery dinner, on parade day, etc. You are also correct about the possible legal ramifications. Our krewe name is registered with the state, and we were advised (by the Secretary of State's office) to take legal action against the other krewe that uses our name. Anyway, I'm sure you'd rather be original and creative; it's more fun to stand out than to use something someone else thought of first. Good luck with your new krewe, and thanks for showing common courtesy to the existing krewes.
