As many of you who have the time to fill out this poll as possible, I need it by tonight's meeting at 6. Thanks.

When I think metor(ite) I think black iron or graphite, not white.

Alabama is the only state in the nation to have someone struck by a Meteorite. Maybe in the world. Look it up.

"Stars fell on Alabama". That sorta thing.

So, in other words, it's a local thing. Kinda like when I first started posting our logo designs and someone told me it was stupid to not have a "hammer" in the name "Yellowhammer" and that I was really "missing out" on a marketing angle...

...Even though Yellowhammer is Alabama's state bird and there is a contingent of Confederate soldier's called "Yellowhammers".

Gotcha


This is what I think of...


In that case, go with Meteorite White. It is more correct and it rhymes.

I voted stoopid, but after considering your story, Meteorite White is my pick...

you could be really confusing and put a that pic on the label and call it white meteorite (a black wit beer)  :o

Keep it simple and go for meteorite white. people who know will know and those that don't can read the back label!

I like Meteorite White. Makes me think of a white meteor streaking through the sky.

Too bad. MeteorWhite is a far better name. Too clever for this bunch I guess. ;)
Thanks for the feedback.

I liked Meteorite White better.  I seem to be developing an strong aversion to words made up by jamming 2 words together.  The word play has to really be spectacular to make that work.  More than likely it's a symptom of 30 years working in IT where "new" words are becoming impossible to pronounce.

To me 'r' to 'wh' is awkward to say. Plus I find rhymes memorable.

I would have gone with "White-ass Toroid" and used a picture of a powdered donut on the label.

What's funny is how unscientific these polls are. Another poll elsewhere has Meteor White leading by 100%. Strange.
