I'd like to tap the creative minds on this board for an ear-catching company name. Here is a description of the company:

This company will design, manufacture and (maybe) distribute lighting products for residential and commercial use. These products will be based on a form of clean, green, energy-efficient technology not currently available in any lighting market.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Would it be possible/ useful to know what that technology is based on?

My first thought was Fiat Lux or Lux Aeterna. Lucent has already been taken. Lambent? Aglow?

Bran: It's a form of LED technology.

zmjezhd: It's funny because those are names for pieces we've sung in our choir... I think it should be a few words. The name they have now is fairly stilted and boring.

"A New Light"; the advertising slogan could be You Will See Things in A New Light. (Sorry, I know it's not very good. I am not a creative person.)

I thought of "green noir technologies" (or grenoir if you want a portmanteau) thinking noir means new in french. When I looked up noir I found it means stylish but it also means (a cinematic style) characterised by low lighting. smile

Well, I like "Seeing things in a new light". That's very good. Thanks for the inspiration!

I think the "low lighting" bit would be a tad contradictory! :0)
So, it would be "green neuf technologies", but I'm not sure that would fly in the US...

That was a fun suggestion. I had put a smiley on my post which did not register. I think I should add [smiley] instead of a colon and bracket.

Maybe " LEAD ON " and the letter A a bit dimmed, so that the led idea keeps coming through?

Yeah! That was part of the joke that I did not tell very well. Sorry. [Smiley] or [frowny] whichever. I am using a non blackberry connection on a blackberry phone. Perhaps that is why smileys don't register.

Blackberry phone? That sounds like a vitaminized green connection. That and the cat catching caterpillar make you the true environmentalist.

Seems like twosleepy switched off completey from this topic where lots of creative minds tried at least the best they had.
From tomorrow the lights will be focussed on Vancouver! Be seeing you, Zed!

Thanks, Joanie. It's an internet name I created 11 years ago when I first started using the internet regularly. I had twin infants, and a 5 year-old, hence the appellation. And back then, yes, I was VERY sleepy much of the time! :0)

Avy, I understood and enjoyed your suggestion. And yes, your smiley face did show up (at least on my Firefox browser). smile

Yes, you too could become known as His Exalted Highness.

Okay I've decided to use heh instead of a smiley. Sorry Buf. I've stolun it. You should've sold your copyright. It was making you no money anyway. Heh! Stolun it may be, but it feels so good to be able to laugh after so long. Heh! (Oh sorrry. I forgot to sign it) Avy's heh! There that looks good doesn't it? Buf? Buf who? He was stupid enough to enjoy the 'joy' in creation. What's creation? It is not coloured green. My heh is G R E E N and I can count it. Heh!

Levron raises my attention somewhat. Not sure why but it has an essence about it.

Boo!

Oh, that was a few weeks ago.... anyhoo...

I just thought I'd mention what name they decided to go with (despite some of my nice suggestions...) drum roll, please............ OLEDWorks. Exciting, isn't it? Well, not everyone feels creative names are the best way to go, I guess. But, on the other hand, they have have found all the financial backers they needed and have incorporated and officially hired all the people that have been working for over a year without any contract, including my hubby. Let's just hope the whole thing will take off and make some money for everyone... :0)

What about LIGHT GO

The word is highlighted in green to emphasize play on word "green light". What do you do on a green light - go.....
