After Nicola Sturgeon’s pledge to give Scotland another vote on independence on Monday, many realised that we may not be known as the “United Kingdom” for too much longer.

Speaking in Edinburgh on Monday morning, Scotland’s first minister said she wanted the vote to be held between Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019.

Sturgeon said she will next week ask the Scottish Parliament to approve the necessary Section 30 order from Westminster.

Will we have to endure a horrific Brexit-style portmanteau?

We’ve rounded up some of the best (and worst) - have your say on what it should be called with our upvote-downvote poll here.
