These propositions are written in Chinese characters and have been put forward online. As can be expected, most names were posted from Mainland China, although the website received 8,383 propositions from abroad.

The names tend to be formal or poetical and contain the names of places. Nicknames like the popular "wasp waist," "twisted firewood" or "peg-top" have all been excluded from the final. The panel itself has put forward a name, suggesting "Canton Tower" in an aim to promote the name Guangzhou is known by abroad.

Readers now can visit to vote or send an SMS "1+No." to 10621122909 before October 30th 2009.
