Toronto, Canada: naming agency services for small businesses

Toronto 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 flying up to YYZ, 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’s based in LaLa Land, I warmly invite you to reach out. (I’m also looking to forge dynamic creative collaborations with Toronto marketing agencies, graphic designers and website development companies. Hit me up!)

Toronto naming

Since this website page is about Toronto naming, it seems appropriate to talk about the naming of Toronto, Canada itself.

Naming Toronto, Canada, as catchy a name as it may be, wasn’t the work of some big branding agency or some freelance naming wunderkind. Of course not! Just as with understanding the derivation of most city names, when we want to learn more about Toronto naming, we take a quick glimpse into the city’s history. Now, etymology isn’t always a certain science, but there are Huron tribe references to the word Toronto dating back hundreds of years. The word had a meaning equating to “plenty.” Also, there was a river, a popular canoe route for explorers, that was named Riviere Taronto. With plenty of water about (the Ontario province contains about 250,000 lakes), serving as sustenance, food source and pathway to commerce, this sense of abundance, especially abundant water, would seem to make good naming sense. In the Toronto of today, you’ll find a cosmopolitan attitude, famed Canadian politeness and civility, clean streets, museums, theatre and live music and a vibrant mix of cultural influences. If you’re naming Toronto features, it’s a plentiful list.

Not just Toronto name consulting, positioning and branding! Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal brand naming, too!

When Toronto’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 other Canadian cities, especially small businesses in Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary 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 Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Montreal brand agency, too.
