I think the bands should be consulted.

For example, I suspect the band that named Chopping Block Minor might
prefer "Chopping Block Bob Minor" to "Chopping Bob Minor", while the band
that rang Not A Block Major almost certainly would prefer "Normandy
Surprise Major" since they said so in a footnote to the peal report.

Oh, wait, the Central Council *still* thinks of Normandy as a non-method.
Sorry. Maybe next year.

Also, there are a pile of doubles methods, Caunton Slow Course being the
canonical example, that were briefly recognized by the Central Council in
the early 60s, and subsequently disavowed. I hope they will come back under
the same names they were formerly accepted under.
