British Science Week Published: 14th of March 2023

What's in a Name? Published: 22nd of November 2022

Names are important.
Do you know why asbestos is called asbestos? Apparently, the term was first used in England in the fourteenth century and it came from the Greek meaning inextinguishable or unquenchable.
Over the years I have started a number of businesses. A challenge is always to think up a good name for the business.
There are a limited number of options when thinking of a company name. Should it be eponymous – for example Kellogs, Richer Sounds? Should it be evocative – Apple, Virgin? Should it be descriptive – the Post Office, Money Supermarket? Should it be an acronym – KFC, Asda? Should it be a made-up word because none of the other options were viable – Cadent, Arriva?

There were [a] few big players and then lots of little players that grew around it. Now it’s famous….As for the name, Karodia and Arif throw a few suggestions around. ‘Brownfield valley’ sounds odd and ‘asbestos valley’ sends the wrong message so they settle on the tongue-in-cheek ‘asbestos-free valley’.”
