I'm going to make this real, real simple.

First off, I don't understand why this is even an argument. "Premium
Photography" strikes me as a perfectly acceptable name. Not spammy even a
little bit.

That said, if theme names being submitted do get to a point of actually
being "spammy", then I'll simply put a stop to it... with great prejudice.
I don't use override authority often, but any actual spam found *will be

We don't allow spam on WordPress.org, and that's a flat rule that is well
above and beyond any of the theme-review team's decision. We know spam and
abuse when we see it, regardless of definitions decided by anybody else's
guidelines. We hate spam, and will not abide its presence on the site.

My suggestion would be to choose names for names and not for any form of
SEO text. Names are not keywords nor search terms, they're names. Names
should be unique. From that perspective, "Premium Photography" is a
terrible name. It is neither descriptive nor, in fact, a "name". It doesn't
lend itself well to discussion or to searching based on its unique
identity. It's a *bad* SEO attempt, frankly. But it's not quite "spam".
