1.if benkowen is used, anglo-english isnt that farfletched

2. my idea is "h1-a8 diagonal fight opening"

It's okay but the problem is that when white plays Bg2 black has to play something like Nc6 and white can develop their knight to e2 and always keep an eye on the diagonal

This is a line I created which I call the royal sacrifice:

In his case, it could be dubbed Double Rookie Gambit. blitz.pnggrin.png

rookie also meaning beginner/new that title fits perfectly

One more naming option is Benko: Centrosymmetric Variation. settings.pngpeshka.png

Anglo and English are the same thing. It'd be like saying the "English-English opening"

c4=english opening

d4 b6=english defense
