A Credit Union That NEEDS A Name Change

Some credit unions have changed their names recently, prompting discussion about the merits of doing so. But when I saw the picture below, I couldn’t but help think: “Now here’s a credit union that should change it’s name.” If I need to tell you why….then you should brush up on your Internet slang.

  1. OMG!!!!!! LOL! That is freaking HILARIOUS!!!! I love it! That is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while.

    On another note, this example points out that credit unions have acronym-itis. Nearly all CU names are a mouthful to say, but there are usually far better ways of shortening a CU’s name than to go to the acronym.

    Thanks for sharing Ron!

  2. Ron,

    What the pho? (which, BTW, is the name of a great restaurant in Seattle).

    You got me on this one. I think they should definitely drop the acronym — but why not just go with Washington Telephone. Or I hear that Optiva is for sale…..

  4. Ron, you heard it here first: “We are pleased to announce that effective April 12, 2007, the Washington Telephone Federal Credit Union (WTFCU) changed its name to Signal Financial Federal Credit Union.” This is according to a CU press release.

  5. It is a nice progress to develop credit union in the world. We must create creaative idea continuosly to make sure it will be run on the right track. We are in Indonesia hope to sharing knowledge and experience. May I get a nice program from you ?

    thaank you.
