The company wants to know:
We at Analtech get a wide variety of questions, everything from “How do you produce such quality Thin Layer Chromatography plates at such reasonable prices?” to “How many of your products were used on ‘CSI’?”
But, the one question we get consistently is:
“Where on earth did you come up with a name like ‘Analtech’?!”
In fact, this question seems to be asked frequently to no one in particular on various web sites and blogs, normally phrased “Why did they name their company that?!”
As Mr. Hill points out, score one for Beavis and Butthead. If they’d seen the B&B world coming, they would have gone with Anatech, but that’s taken now. Beaver College famously changed its name several years back. Heck, an elementary school where I grew up changed their mascots from the Beavers to the Falcons because of the jokes.
So what’s next? The Annals of Internal Medicine? On the one hand, they have the extra N. On the other hand… huheh… annals… internal… huheh.
