Company Name

Recommended Posts


Dear Sachin,
If the name is purely in English, usually there is no issue.
Since the name you had chosen is generic and does not have any bad connotations as far as I can translate back to Chinese.
Therefore, there should not be any issue.
In the past, Pepsi, the next generation was badly translated into mandarin.
And in the past, two Japanese companies came up with names for their car:
Honda - "Concerto" and in Hokkien sounds like " Company close down".
Nissan - "Blue bird" and in Hokkien is a crude name (which I better not say out).
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Dear Users,
1. For the company signage e.g. above the door, it is best to adopt the Yin and Yang concept.
2. This is where Yang = odd numbers e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 etc...
3. While Yin = odd numbers e.g. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc...
4. More importantly your company logo should either have Yang dimensions at the length or width or vice versa.
5. For example, your logo panel can be e.g.
5 feet 8 inches by 2 feet 9 inches etc...
(even vs odd)
It will give the signage a balance of yin and yang.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Dear Vijay,
Usually, if one's business does not deal with Chinese, there is relatively no issue.
Based on the name Angelica, it does not have seem to any bad connation under any of the major Chinese dialects (Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, Hakka) etc... or in Mandarin.
The only other thing is that if it is converted to Mandarin, it should not have any back meaning also.
But I believe, you are not intending to convert it into Mandarin, this name seems fair for a business.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil

Heard this recent converstation at the Toyota dealership:-


Tom (Potential semi-luxury car purchaser) : "I like the drive of this Toyota Camry"


Eager salesman: "Yes, this is a semi-luxury car that will fit your bill. Why semi-luxury? This is because; this is one level below our Lexus luxury cars".


Tom: "How reliable is it? Will I get the same problem as those American ones where it may bring up the average risks of a car ploughing into my house in a "T-junction"


Eager salesman: "This car is so well built that now; even Singapore Comfort Delgro is considering this model as their replacement taxi as they found that the Hundai Sonata's are not that reliable"


Tom: "This is bad news! Currently already one taxi company already uses this model! And if Comfort Delgro distributes this to their taxi drivers... I won't want to drive this model"


Eager salesman: "Oh! -- tongue tied ... feeling down and out"


Tom: " Futhermore, you know, I am a Chinese Hokkien. And I won't want to be caught dead in a CAMRY!"


Eager salesman: "Feeling even more depressed...asked: WHY SIR?"


Tom: "For us Hokkiens - CAMRY means " Kiam Lui " = OWE MONEY in hokkien".


Tom: "Fine for taxi drivers since every day before they start their shift; they already owe money; thus this CAMRY car is a perfect fit"


Eager salesman: "OIC! Would you want to consider our SUV instead.."


Tom: "I don't want to die young, especially flipped upside down or die like that in your SUV! Go read the newspaper or reviews!"


Eager salesman: "Why don't you consider our unique MARK "X" instead?"

Tom: "For Camry, at leastit is only "owe money". For mark X; I don't want to be marked for life and further; we Chinese feel that X is inauspicious!" Choy...

1. Please note that it can be appropriate if one is finding a mandarin business name. And then convert to English name: Not the other way around.

2. But usually can be used as guide for designing a company logo, instead.
