Fascinating list here. This is a really great resource if you were wondering where companies had realised their names and trademarks.
Some very interesting ones:
- A&M Records – named after founders Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss (Actually, I believed it had to do with sound)
- Coleco – began as the Connecticut Leather Company. (who knew that!)
- Starbucks – named after Starbuck, a character in Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick (NOT Battlestar Galactic)
