Global Linguistic Analysis

In-country analysis

Through linguistic analysis, we will assess the language and cultural strengths of the names you select across the languages that are most important to you. We have a panel of native speakers around the globe that help us assess the acceptability of your name candidates.

The analysis will help clarify if:

  • The name is pronounceable in key languages/countries most important to your business
  • The name has derogatory meanings or associations
  • Their local products, companies, brands that have similar names.
