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.
Social media reacted to the news online:
Glad they didn’t drop “tabernacle” because as far as words go, if you think about the sounds & not the meaning, tabernacle is a good one. It’s fun to say. I’ve enjoyed it, as a word, ever since I was a kid. Tabernacle. Just kind of rolls off the tongue. It’s a well-balanced word— Benji ♂️ (@alaskutahn) October 5, 2018
Social media tried to figure out a new abbreviation, too.
So instead of the MoTab it now needs to be the TaCho? I think I can get behind that. #TaChoTuesdays— Heath Waddingham (@heathwadds) October 5, 2018
So no more calling it "MoTab" I guess.https://t.co/ZgDVHWLZLi— Amy Iverson (@Amy_Iverson) October 5, 2018

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