Naming Firm Declares 'XXX' and Vin Diesel are Names that Add to Success!

Strong Name Helps Any Product Succeed



Aug 20, 2002, 01:00 ET from Name One!

    POUND RIDGE, N.Y., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The new movie "XXX" is
 achieving super-charged success partly because it has a great looking name,
 and also because its star, Vin Diesel has an outstanding sounding name, says
 Lauren Teton, partner of the national product naming company Name One!
 "Strange as it may seem, the stunning success of 'XXX' may have hinged as much
 on the naming of the film -- and the name of its star actor -- as it did on
 the millions spent to produce it.  Picking the right name can be that crucial
 to a project's fortune," says Ms. Teton.
     "'XXX' as a movie name, brands itself in the mind. It suggests Sex, and
 Extreme Excitement.  It is unforgettable!  The name 'Vin Diesel' is as
 powerful as a tanker truck speeding down a long grade and is also impossible
 to forget.  Its letter combinations roll smoothly from the mouth."
     But how do you separate the great names from the bad ones?  The Teton
 NameScale, is a proprietary name rating system that solves the puzzle.  "Names
 are given point scores on how good they sound, look and feel.  These are
 factors that affect the memorability and user-friendliness of names, which is
 the bottom line of what makes a name good."
     Name One! has named hundreds of products for Fortune 500 and other
 companies over the last 20 years, "By creating the Teton NameScale,
 (http://www.namescale.com/), we can craft names that are much better than
 average for our clients," says Teton.
