An Entity Named "Sue"?

Recently, I proposed that it may be a Sisyphean job to get courts to recognize that a limited liability company is not a limited liability corporation much less a corporation.  Judicial confusion over nomenclature has been a favorite topic of Professor Joshua Fershee.  While he is willing to continue the struggle, he recently proposed a number of alternative names, many of which are quite creative and would certainly reduce the risk of confusion.  However, I don't expect that California will be renaming the California Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act (CARULLCA) any time soon.  Therefore, we should continue the fight for accuracy in entity nomenclature.  After all, the Hundred Years War wasn't won in a day (and lasted longer than 100 years).

"And I saw Sisyphus at his endless task raising his prodigious stone with both his hands. With hands and feet he' tried to roll it up to the top of the hill, but always, just before he could roll it over on to the other side, its weight would be too much for him, and the pitiless stone would come thundering down again on to the plain. Then he would begin trying to push it up hill again, and the sweat ran off him and the steam rose after him."

Homer, The Odyssey, Book XI (Samuel Butler, translator).
