Is it dunch or linner?

What do you think? Is it dunch or linner? You know, the meal in between lunch and dinner? I mean there is a brunch, which is the meal between breakfast and lunch. 

So, dunch or linner? Many say that it should be linner because the way brunch is structured. B and R in brunch are the B and R for breakfast, since it’s the first meal of the day, and the rest is u-n-c-h taken from the last four letters of the word lunch; thus, we get the word brunch. 

The same structure would apply to the meal between lunch and dinner. L would be taken from lunch, since it’s before dinner, and the rest is i-n-n-e-r taken from the word dinner. However, the word brunch takes the first two letters from the first meal of the day. So, would linner instead be luinner. I mean, what the heck! 

I guess it doesn't really matter, but dunch just sounds so cool and goofy! I would have to vote for dunch over linner or even luinner. It just sounds better: “I’m hungry, let’s go get some dunch!” 

What would you call it? Dunch or linner? We can agree that we are willing to throw away the idea of calling it luinner. Seriously!
