Obviously the best time to change a team name is right after they achieve a worldwide brand with their current name

If the petition proves successful, Wrexham would be the club most affected by such a change. Championship teams Cardiff City and Swansea City, plus Wrexham's League Two rivals Newport County, do not face the same uncertainly as the Welsh names of those three cities are deemed too different from their English spellings.

Who employs these people, have they nothing more useful to do with their time?
What a huge surprise it won't affect Caerdydd (which is obviously massively different to Cardiff). I mean its only the Captial after all.

It doesn't overly bother me tbh, but then again I don't see the problem with places having both Welsh and English spellings in the first place.

If the “official” spelling of the place name did change would the club, an established business, need to follow suit?

According to Wikipedia (yes, I know it has its detractors but it's mostly pretty accurate nowadays):
"origins of the name 'Wrexham' may possibly be traced back to this period as being derived from an Old English personal name, 'Wryhtel' and 'hamm' meaning water meadow or enclosure within the bend of a river i.e. Wryhtel's meadow. The district was known in English as Bromfield".
There are other posters on RP (like Eastsussexred) who do a lot more detailed (and appreciated) research on the area so they may be able to chime in.
Yep. The Welsh spelling is simply that; the Welsh way of spelling it due to the absence of "X" in the Welsh alphabet. I wouldn't get too worked up about it as this area was Mercian, Powysian and Venedotian (Gwynedd) over the years. The Normans (Marcher Lords or English monarch) arrived here too, of course. Our history is far more complicated than simple English or Welsh.
It is also possible the area was settled for a while by an Anglo Saxon tribe, the Wreocensæte, who moved up along the West Midlands, giving their name to such as Wroxeter and Wrockwardine Wood and, maybe, to Wrexham.
