When I decided to st▨art my company, I needed a name.
I didn't have any interest in a company bearing my name - too boring. I really wanted something that would represent my communications philosophy, the value I bring to clients, and my personality.
It was a tall order.
As I was brainstorming, I realized that I kept coming b🅰ack to the symbolism of a phoenix rising.
T𒉰he phoenix is a global legend, with a presence in almost in all cultural traditions. With references in ancient Egyptian,🧸 Greek, Native American and Celtic cultures, among others, the legend of the phoenix describes a magnificent creature that is a symbol of renewal and rebirth. This venture was to be a new, exciting direction for my career, and I wanted to work with my clients to elevate, lift and improve their organizations.
So tꦛhe idea of the phoenix really resonated wi🍰th me.
But the name “phoenix” is everywhere, and I'm not based out of Phoenix.
So I went searching for i🧜nternational and phonetic spellings, and pieced together "fionix."
I immediately loved it, so I jumpe🎉d online to see if anything already had the name. Nothing did.
And then I found the golden nugget. Urban Dictionary defines “fionix” as, “a girl who isn’t afraid to fight. Some🐓 people even call her the alpha. She normally has blond hair and slightly different colored eyes. She is strong, fearless, and loyal.”
