And the Award for the Bank with the Worst Name Goes to…

By JLP | October 30, 2005

Wachovia

Pronounced Wah-Ko-Vee-ah which sounds like Walk Ova Ya.

What do you think?

    I vote for “US Bank”. I know it is U.S. Bank, but their signs look like capital-U, small-S Bank, which makes me want to say “us” bank.

    If you run a bank, you should be smart enough to use punctuation when naming it.

    Wachovia *would* be the perfect name for a bank (with its attendant financial services), were it pronounced as I first thought it was: say, “Watch ove’ ya’.)
