You can ask the question again in
Travel /Europe/ Turkey section
for other ideas.
I usually check the questions at that section
There are also Regular users at the Languages section.
You can ask your question there too.
I looove turkish food!!
If you're looking for a "marketing" oriented name that will trigger people's already preconceived positive notions, you could use the words Falafel, Hummus, or Shawarma in the name. Some ideas are:
Shawarma King (I know there is one already in SF)
King of Shawarma
I hope this helps
I know you're not really fishing out for your restaurant's name here so our answers might be insignificant to you. You'll be the one who's going to decide anyway. But I suggest you to go on researching about Mediterranean food and pick a name that's catchy and easy to pronounce.
Try Kebab Land. :) Jk. It's up to you. Whatever you want. :)
How about 'Akdeniz'? It means "White Sea" and is the Turkish name for the Mediterranean.
Paul Theroux's excellent travel book "The Pillars of Hercules" (1995)
I'd suggest "Marmaris", "Bardak" or "Pasha Kebab"
