What’s in a name? asked one writer whom I came across in my younger days. I am not trying to answer that question here though. All names are meant to be good in some way or the other. However, a name has something to it. It has something to do with its existence, and that is why we have a name. Everything has a name. Even the tiniest discoveries or inventions are given a name sooner or later. That given name signifies something.
For a Business Company, sometimes name is all what it got to do the selling. Curious customers and users sometimes go by the name and what is promise by the name. Although all are not content with they got. Smaller companies try to benefitted from the morphed name of bigger Companies, and that is common in today’s world. No doubt everyone wants to make quick buck out of nowhere.
Some names has been associated with scams, looting, and even great loss for humanity. Charles Ponzi, Lehman Brothers might ring a loose bell in some investors ear. That is how the name becomes associated with.
Tyranny, anarchism, democracy, all have a name or more associated with them. Some personalities in history of the world can sent spine-chilling sensation just by the name. Even some political figure have an era attached in their names. By now, some might be allergic to hear the name of Donald Trump (POTUS) and vice versa.
One have a short span of time for creating a good name. The same holds true for creating or misusing one’s name. For the long run a good name is more important than being having fame, money, wealth, and riches. Well, how do you want people to think of you when you’re gone. That says a lot.
“A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” King Solomon (Proverbs 22:1)
