In the truest sense of the word, the Truist name will truly have a tough time catching on!

The Charlotte buzz has not been too positive...

I'll admit I raised my eyebrows yesterday morning when I saw the headline in the Charlotte Observer. Google truist and the following definition pops up but I suspect many will be somewhat doubtful about applying that definition to a bank:

Unselfish concern for the welfare of others;

Not sure that name will garner a strong presence, not catchy from an advertising standpoint, in my opinion. Some words that end in ist are...activist...communist...egotist...opportunist...etc.

Hum, I don't know. Try using it in a sentence, "I bank at Truist" or "My financial adviser works for Truist". Doesn't have a ring to it. We shall see.

Sometimes they combine the two names. Here they went for a whole new name. I know it's apathetic of me but I don't really care much what the suits do.
