Albuquerque, New Mexico: naming agency services for small businesses

Albuquerque naming agency services are provided remotely by Los Angeles-based Names&Naming, a spin-off of Scott Silverman’s branding consultancy, Articulated Brands®. While I certainly don’t mind making the trip to ABQ (I’ve got family there), it’s important to remember that most creative naming assignments can be completed via email and phone. If you’re open to working with someone who isn’t from these parts, I warmly invite you to reach out. I’m also looking to forge dynamic creative collaborations with Albuquerque marketing agencies, graphic designers and website development companies. Hit me up!

Albuquerque naming

Since this website page is about Albuquerque naming, it seems appropriate to talk about the naming of Albuquerque, New Mexico itself.

Naming Albuquerque wasn’t a task given to one of the country’s top naming agencies. No, like most city names, there’s a history behind the Alburquerque name. The city, also called Duke City, was named after Francisco Fernandez de la Cueva. He was 8th duke of Albuquerque (note the spelling difference) and the city was named after that Spanish city. He served as Viceroy of New Spain from 1702-1711 and the provincial governor at the time, Francisco Cuervo y Valdes, made Albuquerque’s naming official. Albuquerque may not be an easy city name to spell, but it’s an easy city with which to fall in love. It’s famous for its early Native American influences, its Spanish culture, its balloon festival and its chili pepper-infused cuisine. Maybe that’s why, today, when over 900,000 people use the name Albuquerque, what they’re really calling it is home.

Not just Albuquerque name consulting, positioning and branding! Taos and Santa Fe brand naming, too!

When Albuquerque’s businesses need cool and catchy company name ideas, unique product name ideas, positioning and branding consulting, as well as copywriting, design and other creative support, they can count on Names & Naming and my brand consultancy, Articulated Brands®, which operates out of Los Angeles. But businesses in Albuquerque’s surrounding cities, especially small businesses in Santa Fe, Taos and other New Mexico cities, also need help naming and branding. So long as you don’t mind working via telephone and email, I’m happy to serve as your Taos and Santa Fe brand agency, too.
