BENTONVILLE, ARK (AP) — Some Wal-Mart customers soon will be able to sample a new discount item - Wal-Mart’s own brand of wine. The world’s largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of Modesto, Calif. to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range.

While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart Brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine, said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. She also said: “The right name is important.” So, here we go:

The top 12 suggested names for Wal-Mart Wine:

12. Chateau Traileur Parc
