Do groups need to use “Transition” in their name to become official?

No, groups are not required to adopt “Transition” in their official name. Several groups, particularly those that have been active in their communities for a long time, have chosen to keep their existing names but still identify themselves as Transition Initiatives. Many other groups however, do want to add “Transition” to their names, as it helps identify them with a rapidly growing, exciting, international movement.
