Cologne was part of the French Département Roer ( named after the river Roer, German: Rur) with Aachen (French: Aix-la-Chapelle) as its capital. The French modernised public life, for example by introducing the Napoleonic code and removing the old elites from power. The long tradition of a free imperial city, which long dominated an exclusively Catholic population and the age-old conflict between the church and the bourgeoisie (and within it between the patricians and craftsmen) have created its own political climate in Cologne . Various interest groups often form networks beyond party boundaries.

Of 19 suspects so far identified by name by the Cologne police, 10 were asylum seekers and the other nine were believed to be in Germany illegally, according to a report by Mr. Jäger, the interior minister. The police and the state government in Mainz, a main carnival center, detailed extra plans this week, including creating special passages to allow women to leave raucous crowds, more bodycams for police officers and steps to explain carnival to newcomers who have never seen such celebrations.

Naming a brand requires a certain amount of research. It shouldn’t just relate to your product but carry with it deeper contextual associations that capture the quintessential nature of the business. It needs to identify with the overarching message of the business, and it needs to be easily remembered. It should relate to the product in some way, offering an idea about the purpose, benefits and quality of the products produced by the company. When coming up with your brand name you also have to think about how it translates into other languages. Does it translate well and how does its meaning change?

Intensive research necessary to avoid name similarities

You have to be very careful that the names are not alike. ”So an intensive research is necessary first.

There are more than 50 million product and brand names worldwide. But Bernd Samland always comes up with something. When the Landesbank WestLB was to get a new name in the wake of the financial crisis, for example, he invented Portigon.

He came up with “Serways” by Tank and Rast, the latest variations “Planschies” and “Fruppis” by Haribo or the TV programs “Ready to beef” and “Alles auf Freund”, each with Tim Mälzer. In Cologne he invented the “Coloneum” in Ossendorf, and the “Rhingo” scooter service for Rhein-Energie.

Bernd Samland is a secretive person. And he has to be, because he is the first to see new products and ideas - in order to invent a name for them. Until then, the strictest confidentiality applies. That is why the author (his latest book is called "Naming for Successful Brands: Strategic Naming Marketing in Theory and Practice") does not reveal what he is currently working on.

Just this much: “Car paints, various drugs, banks, insurance companies, food supplements, electric cars. That has to be enough. ”
