    Which Club Name is grammatically correct?

    Hello Teachers,

    A few friends and I recently started a "Wine Club". We would like to name our group the following, but cannot agree which of these names are
    gramatically correct? What do you think. This name will appear on our individual cards, etc..

    "Women Wine Enthusiasts"
    California Berries

    or

    "Women Wine Enthusiast"
    California Berries

    Their is a large national publication entitled
    "Wine Enthusiast"

    Some of the ladies feel we should follow the magazine...some feel it should be plural.

    Please help?? I appreciate your expertise!

    The magazine title "Wine Enthusiast" is meant to indicate that those who buy and read the magazine are wine enthusiasts. When you name your club, I think you should use the plural.

    The singular doesn't work for me when you have women in the title.

    Using the magazine title as part of the name of your club might land you into trouble (Trade Marks and such), and it certainly, to me, conveys the idea that the club is just a sort of subsidiary to the magazine. Maybe that's why some of the ladies resist that idea.
