Postby FastSRT8 » Sun Mar 30, 2014 1:29 pm

Looking for a name for a new real estate development company I am going to set up in Asia.

I am searching for a single word only.

My current fave is "Pinnacle".

Anyone have any brilliantly cool names to offer?

Like money said make sure it will be easy to understand in the market you will be operating in. Also make sure it does not sound like something bad in Mandarin. I cannot exactly remember the details but I know that Ford introduced a car in Mexico that basically meant or sounded like poop or something like that in Spanish. Did not sell very well.

"Auspicious." Kind of an inside joke with my coworkers about how so many things are auspicious in China (and odd that they picked such a formal translation, instead of "lucky" or "good fortune" or whatever).

Or just a long string of 8's. :) I lived in the Columbus, Ohio metro area for a while, and Columbus Dispatch's classifieds number is 888-8888 (the theme song will NEVER LEAVE YOU if you hear it once)...After going to China, I found myself singing the number from time to time whenever the 8 obsession came up. Luckiest classifieds department in the WORLD!

That was it!

Does it have to be a real word?

Are you developing for western companies in Asia or Asian companies?

Pinnacle is a very western name. How about 'Winn' just for the fact that it sounds like win, but it's just an arbitrary name. The word signifies success, similar to Pinnacle. Of course, if your service/product is just really good, might as well build up your legacy and use your initials. ;)

I'm looking for something really western.

That's one way to distinguish myself from others.
