I Need a Better Name for This Recipe

My Aunt Gwen made these chops for me once about 28 years ago! I'd made them a couple of times again a long time ago, but came across this recipe last week. The recipe is called Mayonnaise Pork Chops, but that just doesn't sound that good for a recipe that is really tasty. Any ideas?

Mayonnaise Pork Chops

boneless, skinless pork chops
thinly sliced onion or chopped onion
shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

Spread chops generously with mayonnaise. Add a thin slice of onion or some chopped onion, and top with some shredded or grated Parmesan cheese. Bake at 425˚ for about 30 minutes.

T Update: T is doing so much better. She shed the catheter Sunday and the IV on Monday, and has already been taking care of her ostomy pouch. She's getting around really well, is eating normal foods, and is anxious to come home. The only negative thing right now is a horrific rash - we think it was caused by the plasticky meshy underwear they put her in after the operation, because the rash is everywhere the underwear was. It's really ugly and painful. To add to that, the temperature in her room has been hot, and the nurses said they put a work order in days ago but nothing has been done. Tonight, she reached the end of her rope and demanded they move her to a room with air conditioning, because that rash won't get better as long as she's hot and sweaty. So they moved her! We're hoping she'll be able to come home tomorrow.

Oh, gosh. Your poor girl. What an ordeal. Sounds like she's on the mend, but YOW.
As for your pork chops? You can't call them Mayonnaise Pork Chops. Gonna have to get real creative here...
I'm thinkin' Côtelettes de Porc Angélique.

I like Aunt Gwen's Chops too! It sounds tempting but I have to agree the first name isn't good!
