Change Company Name

Introduction of every Business begins with the name of their company. We hear a lot of people saying "Naam me kya rakha hai? Oh wait, shayad kuch rakha hai!" Well; It's the first thing anybody would hear about your Company, right?


There may be various reason of changing the name of your business:

  • It is not in consonance with your business activity
  • It is not lucky for your business as per astrology
  • It is very difficult to pronounce by public at large
  • Outgrown own registered brand and want same name for Company
  • Your business is associated with an activity/product that’s no longer viable
  • Management changed and now do not want to continue with old Name
  • Customers/clients can’t remember, spell, or pronounce your company’s name
  • Or for any other reason as applicable to your company.

Your company name may not be as you want it and perhaps it does not sound good as it should or any other reason as listed above. It is not just your case that you wish to change the name of the company. Think about Brad’s Drink vs Pepsi Cola. In 1893 a man by the name of Caleb Bradham created a new drink at his drug store in New Bern, North Carolina. It consisted primarily of sugar, vanilla, kola nuts, and carbonated water and was called Brad’s Drink. Sold Brad’s drink out of his drugstore. It was quaint. It was nice. It was small town. But Caleb wanted to go big. He wanted mass appeal. He needed a name change. Brad’s Drink wasn’t going to get the job done.

He renamed it Pepsi Cola. The rest is history.
