We describe an initial version of an algorithm for generating named references to locations of geographic scale. We base the algorithm design on evidence from corpora and experiments, which show that named entity usage is extremely frequent, even in less obvious scenes, and that names are normally used as the first focus on a global region. The current algorithm normally selects the Frames of Reference that humans also select, but it needs improvement to mix frames via a mereological mechanism.
