You can name the mount point anything you want.  I use
/store and then have directories under that called
/store/record , /store/music , /store/video , etc. 
Basically just 
root at desktop:/# mkdir /store
root at desktop:/# mount /dev/mapper/vg-myth /store
then make all your directories, this assumes you named
your logical volume vg-myth
