It’s hard to find a topic that hasn’t already been discussed on the forum but I can’t seem to find a discussion on whether having to rename the bank Monzo was a blessing in disguise.
To quote the original blog post:
“As we mentioned during our recent Crowdcube campaign, our trade mark, “Mondo”, has been legally challenged by an undisclosed company with a similar name. This situation means we need to decide a new name for ourselves.”
Someone on LinkedIn commented in a recent post:
“Monzo reminds either of “Bonzo”, used as a magic word by old-style stage magic trick performers, or a joke name for a dog.”
Personally, I think Monzo is the better name and more marketable but I’d be interested in hearing what everyone else thinks.
