Exactly. Identifying the type of business is safe enough; using the name (or even a parody of a name), not so much. Yes, it's funny to call your workplace VoldeMart, but the higher-ups might figure it out eventually; better to just say "department store".
Good point.

I originally called my store "Big box", not to be confused with Big Lots, but because in my mind "big box stores" refers to very large chain stores.

Not sure if anyone figured out where I work (aside from PMs) but this is also why I gave things like our software nicknames that had nothing to do with the company. Like "Reaver" and "Firefly".

Tho I'm no longer there so if any of you figured it out, that's OK.

My previous job was pretty obvious tho. (Squid!)
