isn't "ferorum" a genitive plural? correct me. but i guess i needn't read further if the main idea is faulty.

Pretty sure you are incorrect.

" In grammar, genitive (abbreviated gen; also called the possessive case or second case) is the grammatical case that marks a noun as modifying another noun. It often marks a noun as being the possessor of another noun; however, it can also indicate various other relationships than possession: certain verbs may take arguments in the genitive case, and it may have adverbial uses (see Adverbial genitive)."

I know enough Latin to know this is not the possessive form.

Assuming you are a professor of Latin with a doctorate in language studies, I fail to see how the name being grammatically invalid automatically invalidates the concept for the venture as a whole.

Care to explain?
