SALT LAKE CITY — The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a new name.

The choir will be renamed The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, according to a news release from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The name change comes about a month after President Russell M. Nelson announced that the church will drop the nicknames “Mormon” and “LDS” in most uses, the Deseret News reported.

Social media reacted to the news online:

Social media tried to figure out a new abbreviation, too.

Plenty of people joked that they’ll refer to the choir as “the artist formerly known as MoTab” as well.
