      Interesting. You might try making the page as a website, and then try changing the name after it is created.

      Did you submit an inquiry to them to see what they have to say?

     you will have a URL for it that you can include on all your other marketing collateral and in any communications your organization sends out. If you make the information on your Google Plus business profile available to everyone on the Web, then your page URL will also appear in Google searches, making it more likely that your organization will be discovered. …
