Can The Name Tell You Something About A Company?

This afternoon through my letter box came an invitation from Duff & Phelps to attend a special shareholders meeting of Glasgow Rangers Football Club. Obviously I have been following matters as closely as I can through whatever sources are available to me and it appears that the Administrators are themselves caught up in all sorts of shenanigans themselves.

Anyway as it says the meeting will take no longer than 10 minutes it seemed pointless to spend all that time and money on a trip to Glasgow so I thought I would just take advantage of the enclosed Proxy Form to record my vote but low and behold no enclosed Proxy Form. Duff seems to be about right.

Strawballs What happened to the 2 naval ports to end up both with major financial problems? Argyle were nearly liquidated and remained in the league by the skin of their teeth nearly suffering 3 relegations in a row.

When I saw the title, I thought it was about a companies name and not a football subject!.

Going back to the thread title, prompted my mind when Royal Mail had a name change to (I think?) Centrica, and nobody understood what it was suppose to mean, except perhaps the marketing people and management who came up with the idea?.

There is a business not far from where I live with the title of LFB on their van's and premises. It stands for Little Fat Bloke, and all this stems from the days about 20 years ago, when he first set up business selling tyres and exhausts. People use to say "try the Little Fat Bloke (which he was/is) and the name stuck. He's been in business for 20 odd years, so it must tell you something about the company and the person involved?.
