CEO for a Day

Posted June 3, 2008

Let's have some fun today. You're the CEO. You're in charge of a large new company with dozens of North Carolina related products. First order of business - coming up with names. We'll give a prize to the person who generates the most creative and interesting names.

Okay, put on your thinking cap. Come up with a name for the following:

1. A publishing company
2. Barbecue restaurant
3. Ice cream flavor
4. Winery
5. Baseball team
6. Shaving cream
7. Soft drink
8. Fragrance

Here are my suggestions: (1) Saxapahaw, (2) Carolina Cue, (3) Watermelon Pecan, (4) Glade Valley Winery, (5) The Mannymurphs, (6) Heel Cream, (7) Jordan Cool, (8) Honeysuckle & Jasmine
