Our Name and Its History

Why Weedor

The name WEEDOR is historic and has an “emotional value” to the organization’s founder; it is in honor of a loving mother and all mothers around the world who make extraordinary sacrifices to put meaning and purpose into the lives of their children.

 

In suggesting this name, Donald, a member of the board of directors, provided the below arguments:

It is Generic

It is generic and not tied to a specific mission. Therefore, if your mission expands or changes in the future, you won't need to change your company name again.

It has Emotional Value

It definitely has emotional value to you [Founder] and maybe to others in Africa.

It is Easy to Spell

It is very easy to spell. Even I could guess how to spell it after having heard it.

It is Easy to Remember

It is easy to remember.

It is Short

It is short... just one syllable.

It is not Language Specific

It does not require a knowledge of English, Kissi, Maninka, Kuwaa, or any other language. That will also make it easier to expand to other countries in Africa.

The Sound is Punchy

The sound is punchy. Tons of companies are searching for names with impact like that.

It is Unique

It is UNIQUE. Have you heard of other organizations with that name? I certainly haven't.
