    2. Hmm... that one is odd. It actually doesn’t really make sense in English. I’m guessing it means to say “It wouldn’t [be] an overstatement to name this show after them.” In that case (it is hard to tell because there isn’t much context), it would mean that it would not be said with too much exaggeration if it was said that the show (maybe a T.V. show?) should be named according to them. So, a more simple version would probably be “It would not be too much of an exaggeration to say that we should call the show by the names of these people (with “these” refering to whomever “them” is).”
