New flashlight brand - need ideas (Finished)

Hi,

I’m wanting to get my own brand to stop potential customers jumping on AliExpress and purchasing the same light cheaper. I started using the Osram WF in the Convoy C8+ and L21A as custom builds, but now Convoy sell them and I’d prefer to print my own brand on them. Simon has agreed to rebranding his hosts.

I need ideas for a brand. I’d never sell internationally, just in NZ.

I’ve come up with a couple but unsure what sounds decent

Skylight
Solarflare / Solarstorm
Nightflare
Ultralux

TIA

Most Chinese sellers already have taken dozens of name combinations.

Hi from a former Kiwi, 3 years living in West Auckland and 13 years in Tauranga.

How about Maori translations -

Fire – Ahi.
Torch – Rama
Sun – Rā

How about those cheeky parrots – Kea

Or perhaps KiwiTec or an acronym – KT.

Edited to add – How about FuKTrademe! Big Smile

Icarus Lights

Never could find a lumen monster bright enough, so he rode to the sun…or something like that if I remember right.

What do you call two sheep tied to a post in Christchurch?

Thanks for all the input, I really appreciate it apart from all the names with “fire” in it haha. I’ll stay well away from that name.

I like “Nightbreaker.”
Have you thought about a name that says “New Zealand” to potential purchasers, to give your lights a more localized brand flavor? Perhaps TuiTorch. Or RuruLight (maybe RuLight?). Lights that can help spot the owls, you know.

I know nothing about NZ and Maori, but I think MaoLight is a nice name. Sounds like a China brand though.
