Newly promoted Farsley Celtic want to change their name to FC Leeds or Leeds Celtic, reports BBC Radio Leeds.
The 100-year-old club have come up with the drastic proposal because not enough people know where Farsley is.
Farsley chairman Andy Firbank said: "It comes down to what's best for Farsley Celtic as a club.
"If we need to change our name to take us up another level from a crowd support point of view then that's what we need to do."
Fairbank has dismissed suggestions that he is trying to cash in on the Leeds United name.
"We don't have any ambitions to be another Leeds United. We really wouldn't want to be. There are a lot of differences in the two clubs," added Fairbank.
Although the club cannot change its name in time for this coming season, Firbank hopes to have a decision within weeks so that they can plan for the 2008/09 season.
Farlsey have moved up the football pyramid from Unibond Division One to the newly named Blue Square Premier in four years.
