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;

Jeff,

In my humble opinion the word Truist smacks of confusion that will no doubt lead to mistrust.  True and trust if you have to claim it you don't have it...A

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.
