Newfoundland and Labrador (ˈnuːfɨn(dlənd ən(d ˈlæbrəˌdɔr (Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador is a province of Canada, the tenth and latest to join the Confederation Some argued that the university should change its name to Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. After some debate it was decided to maintain the current name and acronym. The reason for this was the history of the name. When originally founded, the name "Memorial" was a reference to the soldiers of Newfoundland who gave their lives in World War I. World War I (abbreviated WWI; also known as the First World War, the Great War, and the War to End All When Newfoundland joined Canada as a province in 1949, Memorial referred to the Newfoundland soldiers of World War I and World War II.

It was felt that it took away from the spirit of the original name.
In May 2006, Memorial announced it would rebrand itself beginning that fall with a new logo and brand image.  Controversy has arisen over this plan, in part because of the logo itself which is much more abstract than the coat of arms used in the past, but also because it only uses the words "Memorial University", omitting the reference "of Newfoundland".  The university has stated that the shortened name is for branding purposes only; that the university's full legal name and coat of arms will not be altered, with their use reserved for ceremonial purposes; and that Memorial will promote, not diminish, its connection to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador in all of its marketing.
