NAMES


Vanish


Companies that are called VANISH. The name VANISH. Places by that name. The name "Vanish" is used by many companies and organisations. But surely in this world with its culture of acquisition you might be surprised about this as the word "Vanish" means to disappear. There are things you'd want to disappear: Troubles, MUCK, an excess of something unnecessary, etc. I've heard that there's many good cleaning products called Vanish, including quite a good brand of stuff called Vanish that can be deployed in the toilet and is very effective at the kind of thing you might guess it does. Also, there's a different company that can make dirt disappear from carpets, so they're called Vanish Cleaning, or something like that. VANISH also refers to magic, and conjuring tricks where things are made to inexplicably disappear. The idea of magic being implicit upon the mysterious change of something from presence to absence, especially if this happens suddenly.

The expression LIVE AND LET LIVE comes to mind, as last time I looked, the company who make a well-known quality brand of lavatory cleaner were threatening to sue a small firm of carpet cleaners just because they'd got the same name. They weren't even in the same line of business, or using the same colour scheme or logo or style of promotion.
