According to various online sources, the earlier nickname given to
Mendelssohn's "Spring Song," Op.62, No. 6 was "Camberwell Green."
Here are direct links to two of those sources, followed by a link to
Google search results that will lead you to others:
This first link is to an interesting account of the circumstances
under which the piece was written, which begans this way:
"The Spring Song Op 62 No 6 was once known as 'Camberwell Green'
because this Song without Words was written at Denmark Hill in
Camberwell where his wife's aunt Mrs Benecke lived . . . . ."
Classicalmidi: Felix Mendellsohn
And here is a link to a site that corroborates this information:
"Erde, Loge and Feuermusik (Fire Music) refer to Wagner's Ring of the
Niebelungen and Spring Song evokes Mendelssohn's visits to my own
London neighbourhood (it was originally called Camberwell Green but
Mendelssohn's publishers thought that a poor title for the hit they
had on their hands)."

Finally, here is a link to a Google search that will lead you to other
references to "Camberwell Green" and "Spring Song":

As you probably know, "Spring Song" may be best known as the
archetypical "damsel in distress" music from the silent movie era.
For the benefit of interested readers of this thread who may not know
