Sommet Center?

The Nashville Arena (formerly Gaylord Entertainment Center) will now be called Sommet Center as the naming rights have been purchased by the Franklin-based business, The Sommet Group, a collection of companies whose services include human resources administration, payroll processing, insurance and risk, according to the Tennessean. Sommet is pronounced “so-may.”

Nashville now has the distinction of having two major sports venues, L.P. Field & The Sommet Center, named for brands no one has ever heard of before.

    Indeed. But at least “the Som” sounds better than “the GEC.”
