ForumsIngerland → Ingerland/Retail and commercial company names

In an effort to create a sense of consistency across Ingerland can I propose we make a note here of retail and commercial company names so that other mappers can use them. I am working on mapping the centre of Salmouth and I'd like to add some shops and offices but I'd like to use brands that will be used consistently through Ingerland.

  • In reorganising this page, a few names that are actual companies were removed, along with a few that are nearly identical or needlessly provocative. You are welcome to contribute to the Ingerland discussion even as not a member of that collaborative territory, but only Ingerland mappers can decide amongst themselves if a company name should be in use. Also, please sign your comments and posts in the future. Thanks. — Alessa (talk) 23:46, 20 November 2023 (UTC)
  • Word of caution: some of the items added to the page before Alessa's clean-up were reminiscent of the early days OGF cringe naming. Likewise using prominent company founder names as the basis (O'Leary, Souter). And there also needs to be a certain level of maturity involved - coprolite (fossilised faeces), greedy and suck off for petrochemical company names doesn't really meet that threshold. /wangi (talk) 15:32, 21 November 2023 (UTC)
