Name Change?[edit]

Although I've written most of this article, I don't think the name is quite right. I've lived here for most of my life and I've never heard anyone refer to it as Northwest VT at least for describing the region as a whole. It's either referred to as the Champlain Valley or Greater Burlington. The counties included as it stands right now are exactly those that make up the Burlington Metro area as defined by the census bureau. Champlain Valley is more common and would probably include most of Addison county as well, but I recognize that parts of NY are also considered part of the champlain valley. There is some justification for referring to Grand Isle and Franklin Counties as being in Northwest VT( Northwestern Medical Center, the local dining guide lumps them together as Champlain Islands/Northwest), but Chittenden County isn't included in this. I don't think Chittenden County should be a separate region since it's economically and to some extent culturally tied to the other two. I'm new to wikivoyage so I'm not sure how this is handled.
