World Fremont.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_C._Frémont

The most famous of the explorers was John Charles Frémont (1813–1890), a commissioned officer in the Army's Corps of Topographical Engineers. He displayed a talent for exploration and a genius at self-promotion that gave him the sobriquet of "Pathmarker of the West" and led him to the presidential nomination of the new Republican Party in 1856.[51] He led a series of expeditions in the 1840s which answered many of the outstanding geographic questions about the little-known region. He crossed through the Rocky Mountains by five different routes, and mapped parts of Oregon and California. In 1846-7 he played a role in conquering California. In 1848-49, Frémont was assigned to locate a central route through the mountains for the proposed transcontinental railroad, but his expedition ended in near-disaster when it became lost and was trapped by heavy snow.[52] His reports mixed narrative of exciting adventure with scientific data, and detailed practical information for travelers. It caught the public imagination and inspired many to head west. Goetzman says it was "monumental in its breadth--a classic of exploring literature."[53]

Are you sure you would like a name synonymous of failure for a world name?

Surely there are better suggestions.

I thought we was only meant to suggest one name - now I have stuck to that rule

Flat Rock -- It's a real place -- One in Michigan and another in North Carolina. I'm from NC so I'm going by that one. Here's some information on one of the sites within Flat Rock ---

"The Historic Woodfield Inn was built in 1852, on 28 rolling acres as The Farmers Hotel. The Inn served as the first stage coach stop along the Old Indian Trail. During the Civil War, Confederate soldiers were garrisoned at the Inn to protect the Flat Rock community. Confederate soldiers hid gold and jewelry from Union Troops and renegades in a secret room that is still accessible from one of the second story rooms. Written on the inside wall of the secret room is reportedly the formula for making gun powder. After the turn of the century, the Inn was sold and renamed the Woodfield Inn. The Inn has been entered into the National Register of Historic Places. The Inn is now called the Mansouri Mansion. Located on Greenville Hwy in Flat Rock."
