Darn, forgot to hit the plain text button...

My experience over the years has been:

A name with "Documentation" in it will have people confusing you with Document Control

"Information" will have people confusing you with IT

"Communication" will have people confusing you with Public Relations or HR

"Publications" or "Writing" are the least likely to have people thinking you're some other group, but if your group also ends up owning multimedia or marcom somebody will always feel as if they're the poor relation in the family.
