I do appreciate the problems you have in updating the name, however
they didn't change this to spite you, they do not own the rights to
Telia name as a brand and had to change. I hope this brings you some
comfort in this difficult time.
Fun fact, Arelion is a slime covered corpse in WoW, and an existing
legal entity in a market twelve99 (which would have been a great name)
operates in.
