The naming of a new subway station after a popular duck snack brand is proving hard to swallow for residents in Wuhan.

Hubei's provincial capital is scheduled to open Line 2 at the end of this year, and authorities have already sold the naming rights to seven of its 21 stations, generating 22.75 million yuan ($3.65 million).

However, people have expressed mixed feelings over the fact Jianghan Road Station - in a historic area of the city - will be branded with the name Zhouheiya, a well-known snack company.
