What’s In A Name?

A company’s name can say a lot about the products or services it provides. We figured it out in 2000 when our name changed from Hanson, Moser & Associates to HMA Public Relations.

There are many examples – both good and bad – of how companies choose their names.  This typically takes some thought with future marketing in mind.

It’s different for people.  One thing we do not get to do is choose our own name at birth.

A recent Arizona Republic article by Mary Jo Pitzl pointed out the top baby names in Arizona.  Nobody on the HMA team made the list.

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the top girl names currently being used for newborns in Arizona are:

  1. Olivia
  2. Emma
  3. Isabella
  4. Sophia
  5. Luna

The most popular boys names are:

  1. Liam
  2. Noah
  3. Mateo
  4. Oliver
  5. Santiago

Is there a name change ahead for your organization?  Our team can help, even if our own names are not on the list.
