बड़े नाम के पीछे की बड़ी दिलचस्प कहानियां 




(1) Google (गूगल)  : 

Google Logo
गूगल नाम कैसे आया होगा इसके बारे में आपकी क्या सोच है ? आप मानेंगे नहीं की यह लेरी पेज के निकट के सहयोगी की छोटीसी गलती (Spelling Mistake)  की वजह से हुआ है। हाँ यह सच है!
 In 1996, it so happened that Larry Page and Sean Anderson, a graduate student working with him, were seated in their office brainstorming on the name of the search engine. It is said that they were using a whiteboard to think of a good name. They were thinking of naming it as something related to the voluminous data the search engine indexed. Sean suggested the name 'googolplex' to which Larry responded saying, "googol!" Incidentally, the word 'googol' refers to a cardinal number represented as 1 followed by 100 zeroes. Sean was quick to search the Internet domain name registry database to see if the newly suggested name was available. Interestingly, Sean misspelled 'googol' as 'google' and found it to be available. Larry Page liked the name and soon got it registered in the registry database. And this very powerful search engine of the day got its name. The Google search engine was registered as 'google.com' in September 1997.
इसके इलावा एक और मान्यता ये भी है की Google के सह-संस्थापकों को एक निवेशक से एक चेक प्राप्त हुआ,  of an amount that summed up to a Googol.

सालों पहले जो हुआ सो हुआ पर अब हम यह जानते और मानते हैं की गूगल गूगल है और यह अपराजेय है। 





(2) Hotmail (हॉटमेल) :

hotmail logoजेक स्मिथ और साबिर भाटिया  (Jack Smith and Sabeer Bhatia) The founder swere searching for a name ending with 'mail'. और उन्होंने नाम तय किया हॉटमेल  because it also had the letters HTML, the language used to create web pages.







hp logo(3) HP (एच पी) : 

The name Hewlett-Packard was named after its founders, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard. सिर्फ दिक्कत यह थी की किसका नाम पहले आये सो उन्होंने सिक्का उछालकर फैसला लेने का निर्णय किया नतीजा आपके सामने है... 







(4) IKEA (आकीआ)  : 

ikea logoयह कम्पनी के नाम के पहले दो शब्द इनके मालिक के नाम पर और आखरी दो शब्द उनके गाँव के नाम पर है। His name is Ingvar Kamprad and he grew up in Elmtaryd Agunnaryd.








lego

(5) LEGO (लेगो) : 

'LEGO' संक्षिप्त नाम है जो २ डेनिश शब्दों "leg godt" को मिलाकर जिनका मतलब "अच्छा खेलो " से हुआ. The LEGO Group was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. The company has passed from father to son and is now owned by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, a grandchild of the founder.








(6) Yahoo (याहु) : 

logoThis website was named as "Jerry and David's guide to the World Wide Web", which were the first names of the founders. The term yahoo was selected because it was a slang meaning rude and unrefined.
एक और सिद्धांत "Yet Another Hierarchically Organized Oracle" के अनुसार यह भी हो सकता है। 






(7) Adobe (एडोब) : 

Adobe logo

शुरुआती दौर में यह कम्पनी Warnock के गैरेज में शुरू हुई थी। The name of the company,Adobe, comes from Adobe Creek in Los Altos, California, which ran behind Warnock's house. Adobe's corporate logo features a stylized "A" and was designed by Marva Warnock, graphic designer and John Warnock's wife.Talk about randomness here. This name was taken from the stream Adobe Creek because it ran behind the house of the founder John Warnock. 








(8) Twitter (ट्विटर) : 
logo


सारे बोर्ड मेम्बरों को  "jitter, status, twitch" जैसे नाम पसंद थे जिनका मतलब  तुरंत संदेश या तात्कालिक संदेशन जैसा होता था। But, they found the meaning of twitter which said "short burst of inconsequential information, and chirps from birds". This name was pleasing and hence, was finalized.
In 2006, co-founder Jack Dorsey created Twitter as an online SMS service that would update in real-time on a webpage. Its working name was called “Status,” but Dorsey wanted to create a buzzing feeling when you heard the company’s name, so he later thought of “Twitch” because that’s what a phone would do when it would vibrate. However, Dorsey eventually landed on “Twitter” because he didn’t think “Twitch” was a strong enough name.





(9) Bridgestone (ब्रिजस्टोन)  : 
logo

The name is a translation of the name of the founder "Shojiro Ishibashi". जो पथ्थर का फूल "bridge of stone" के जैसा अनुवाद होता था , पर बाद में 'of'' को निकाल दिया गया। 





logo (10) Coca-Cola (कोका-कोला) : 

The brand was named after the coca leaves and kola nuts which were used to flavor the drink. The K was changed to C because the founder thought it looked nicer. John S Pemberton ने इस नये मिश्रण को अंतिम रूप दिया, और उनके साथी Frank M Robinson ने Coca-Cola नाम का सुझाव दिया , उनका ये मानना था के "२ C" विज्ञापन में ज्यादा प्रभावशाली एवं अच्छा दिखेगा। He experiments with writing the company's name in Spencerian script – a popular writing style back then.






logo(11) H&R Block (एच एंड आर ब्लॉक): 

The company was founded by Henry W. and Richard Bloch so the name is quite clear. पर  bloch की जगह block क्यों ? यह इसलिए की "bloch" को लिखने, बोलने या उच्चारण करने पर उन्हें और दूसरों को भी दिक्क्तें होती थी। 







logo(12) Pepsi (पेप्सी) :

यह नाम  "pepsin" नाम का तत्व जो की पाचनक्रिया में मदद करता है उसके नाम से रखा गया।Bradham's Drug Store would later become the very place Pepsi-Cola was invented.Pepsi was first introduced as "Brad's Drink" in New Bern, North Carolina, United States, in 1893 by Caleb Bradham, who made it at his drugstore where the drink was sold. It was renamed Pepsi-Cola in 1898 after the root of the word "dyspepsia" and the kola nuts used in the recipe. He believed the drink was more than a refreshment but a “healthy” cola, aiding in digestion, getting its roots from the word dyspepsia, meaning indigestion.







(13) Sony (सोनी) : 

logoसोनी शब्द लेटिन शब्द sonus से लिया गया है जिसका मतलब ध्वनि या आवाज़ होता है। Also, "sonny" was a slang word which was used to refer to a smart youngster. Thus, the name came into existence. In May 1946, Ibuka was joined by Akio Morita to establish a company called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo (東京通信工業 Tōkyō Tsūshin Kōgyō) (Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation). The company built Japan's first tape recorder, called the Type-G. In 1958, the company changed its name to "Sony".







logo (14) Toyota (टोयोटा) : 

Toyoda (पुराना नाम) ने लोगो बनाने की प्रतियोगिता रखी थी। विजेता ने लिखा जो ज्यादा सराहनीय था। और वैसे भी उनके मालिक नाम "Toyoda" की तुकबंधी वाला था। While getting it drawn, Toyota took only eight strokes of brush while it took 10 for Toyoda. 8 is considered as a lucky number by the Japanese. Considering all the advantages, it was finally named as we know it now.







logo (15) Starbucks (स्टारबक्स) : 

It was simply named after the character in Herman Melville's novel, Moby Dick. Founders thought that it gave a feeling of romance of the high seas and the tradition of the early coffee traders, who traveled through the seas.The company was started by three Seattle men, Gordon Bowker, Jerry Baldwin, and Zev Siegl.








(16) 7-Eleven (सेवन - इलेवन) : 
logo

१९४६ से पहले यह कम्पनी  "U-Tote'm" के नाम से जानी जाती थी।  The name was later changed because of the new working hours of the company. They were open from 7.00 am to 11.00 pm which reflects in their name. तो आप भी अपने काम काज के समय अनुसार कोई नाम सोच ही लो। 










logo (17) LG (एल.जी.)  : 

हम सब इसको "Life's good" समझते हैं पर यह तो सिर्फ उसका  टैगलाइन है, नाम नहीं। नाम बना है combination of two words, Lucky Goldstar, which was the former name of the company.







(18) Apple (एपल)  : 

At a time when other computer companies had complex names and logos, Jobs wanted to distance himself with a more spirited and less intimidating feel than that of his competitors.
logoAlthough many people believe it was named after The Beatles’s record label, Apple Corps Ltd, because its co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were big fans of the British rock band, Apple, Inc. was actually named after an apple farm the pair visited in Oregon. Jobs liked the name Apple because it was “fun, spirited and not intimidating.”





(19) Facebook (फेसबुक) :

logoMark Zuckerberg created Facebook, Inc. as a way to connect Harvard University students online in 2004. The company’s name comes from the physical “face book” directories of students’ faces and names given throughout university campuses in the United States.
वास्तविक नाम "TheFacebook.com "था पर कम्पनी के दूसरे ही साल में Zuckerberg ने “The” को हटा दिया। Now  simply re-directs users to Facebook.com

logo(20) Skype (स्काइप) 

First released in 2003, Skype is derived from "Sky peer-to-peer,” as in a way to connect people together from the “sky” wirelessly. It was then shortened to "Skyper." Skyper.com यह डोमेन पेहले से रजिस्टर्ड था तो अंत में आनेवाले  “r” को छोड़ दिया।




(21) Amazon (अमेज़ॉन ) :

logo
Starting in 1994 and originally named “Cadabra,” as in "abracadabra," founder Jeff Bezos re-named his retail company Amazon a year later after his lawyer mistook it for "cadaver." Bezos landed on Amazon because it’s the name of the largest river in the world and he wanted his company to reflect its size with the launch tagline "Earth's biggest bookstore" in 1995. He also liked the name because it would be first in web listings, which were in alphabetical order at the time. Jeff Bezos also considered the name Relentless.com, which he still owns, but re-directs to Amazon.com instead. लोगो को ध्यान से देखने पर मालूम पड़ेगा की इसमें एक शंदेश है की कंपनी A से Z तक सब कुछ बेचती है। 



(22) Häagen-Dazs (हेगेन डैज़) : 

logo

Although it’s not actually a Danish phrase or word, ice cream man Reuben Mattus called his company Häagen-Dazs as a tribute to Denmark's respect and good treatment of Jewish people during World War II. “The only country which saved the Jews during World War II was Denmark, so I put together a totally fictitious Danish name and had it registered,” said Mattus


logo(23) Samsung : 

In 1938, founder Lee Byung-chull named his company Samsung because it means “Three Stars” or “Tristar” in Korean. He wanted his company to last foreve like stars in the sky, while the number three represents something big, powerful, and bright in Korean culture.





(24) Panera Bread :
logo

In 1987, Ken Rosenthal started the St. Louis Bread Company in Kirkwood, Missouri. As it grew and expanded into other states, the name changed to Panera Bread when bakery and café chain Au Bon Pain bought it in 1997. The company’s name is made up of two words, “Pane” (Italian for Bread) and “Era” (or Time). It’s also Latin for “breadbasket.” “We wanted a name that was an empty vessel we could put personality into, and that’s how we ended up with Panera,” said co-founder Ron Shaich.





(25) Six Flags : 
logo

The amusement park chain is named after its first location, Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. The six flags refers to the six different regions that governed the Lone Star State: Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States of America, and the Confederate States of America. [Note: In 2017, the company stopped flying the actual Confederate flag.] Today, Six Flags operates 20 theme parks and water parks throughout North America.


logo

(26) Gap Inc : 

In 1969, Donald and Doris F. Fisher opened the first Gap retail store in San Francisco, California. The store mainly sold Levi's jeans and vinyl records that were targeted to teenagers and young adults, so the Fishers named their store after the generation gap between younger and older people.
