What do you think?  What reactions have you recently learned about?  What topics are you covering?

I have figured out the product. C1 is protonated to give the allylic carbocation with the highest substitution, and the thermodynamic product is the one where the Cl atom attaches to the C atom to give the more substituted alkene.

I just need the name now...
How would I go about naming this?

Read up on alkene nomenclature either in your book, google, or there seems to be a good page here:

Let us know your attempt after you give it a shot.
