Marketplace spoke with AdAge writer Rupal Parekh this week about companies that are spending a lot of time choosing the perfect names of their conference rooms, names that reflect their corporate culture.

We wanted to get in on the fun, and asked you what Marketplace should name its two main meeting rooms, currently brilliantly named “The Large Conference Room” and “The Small Conference Room.”

And boy, did you weigh in — we received a ton of great suggestions, hundreds of them, in fact.

We’ll start with some close runners-up:

  • Keynes/Hayek
  • Bernanke/Greenspan
  • Bubble/Bust

Just for fun, here are some other…notable…suggestions:

  • “No words – just a picture of the front of Kai and one of the back of Kai”
  • “Robert Reich’s closet and Nancy Marshall Genzer’s dressing room”
  • “Birther/Truther”
  • “Red Pants/No Pants”
  • “Kai Roomdal”

We read ’em all, but the finalists we asked you to vote on were:

  • Wall St./Main St.
  • Bull/Bear
  • Macro/Micro
  • Dollars/Cents
  • Supply/Demand
  • The Dubin (composer of “We’re in the Money”) / the Arlen (composer of “Stormy Weather”)
  • Bacon/Sausage

And the winner is…
