“The simpler corporate name would make advertising more effective.” SONY, therefore, concentrated on the following 4 concepts.
It must be simple.
It must be pronounced the same anywhere in the world.
It must sound appealing when pronounced.
It must look beautiful in logo type form.
According to these concepts, we coined the new corporate name “SONY”, combining the Latin word “sonus” meaning sound and the English word “SONY” suggesting a lively boy.
