I think the Fontainebleau name was officially removed from the project way back in 2009 when the company went bankrupt. If they wanted to use the name now, they'd need to license it from Fontainebleau Resorts LLC, which still operates the Miami Beach Fontainebleau. That seems like a poor way to spend money, considering many people with just a minimum knowledge Las Vegas associate the Fontainebleau name with the eyesore that has sat unfinished for about a decade now.

That said, I'm not sure that "The Drew" hits the jackpot as far as resort names are concerned.
