We are Recycle Bikes for Kids, chosen because we think it best told who we wanted to be. We have since branched out to include a more community view but the name stays because kids are our main focus. 

Still love the name even though it is often shortened to Bikes for Kids. 
Much like naming your child you have to consider what it might be shortened to, what it rhymes with or even what acronym it produces  
Good luck. I look forward to seeing your decision
