What’s In a Name?

What’s In a Name?

So Much!!!

A name can contain all that we imbue it with…and more! It can symbolize, epitomize, personalize, realize and capitalize.

Be it personal or corporate, names are central and essential to who we are, what we do, how the world perceives and deals with us.

As a brand-building firm, Vergant knows and maximizes the importance and power of names. As Vergant’s founder, I’ve been coining phrases and naming products and programs (from Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors and nail polish colors to theoretical learning processes and new technologies) since my teens.

What follows are a few of the names that reside in Vergant Territory. In most instances, Vergant owns suites (.com, .net, .org) of these and other domains. Several names, as well as the companies, properties and concepts associated with them, are available for sale, syndication, and/or partnership opportunities.

So please let me know if there’s anything here that fires your imagination…or if there’s namestorming, brand-building or business development that we can do together.

Warmly and looking forward,
