That’s what Prince of Petworth says.

“Currently, there are discussions about renaming the area on 14th Street from Monroe north to Shepherd. The name will be – Tivoli North. Or Tivoli North Corridor. Personally, I think it’s a great name. I know that Columbia Heights technically goes as far north as Spring St. Road but I believe the area from Monroe Street on north has it’s own distinct flavor.”

Of course, “there is a discussion” is not the most open and upfront attribution—-as more than one comment pointed out. (I just wrote the blogger an e-mail as well.) Until this area gets its own special amenities, I can’t imagine who’s going to embrace a name change.  And no, Red Derby and its broad array of canned beers will not suffice, though commenters kept discussing it as if it was a neighborhood classic.
