I'm inclined to agree that adding more possible confusion is not a good
thing even if it is minimal. What about some variation on a propylaeum
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propylaea)? A propylaeum is a gateway that
sits at the entrance of a sacred enclosure. The most famous one is at
the Acropolis. Entering the Acropolis was permitted or denied at the
Propylaeum. A literal reading of the Greek would be something like 'that
which is before the entrance (or gates)'.
