We put a lot of thought into names here at Chromos. Each of our frames is named after something or someone significant to our company, and we're looking forward to sharing some of those stories here.
To get us started on our "What's in a Name?" series, we thought we'd start with us. Where did the name Chromos come from?
Turns out there is a lot of pressure that comes with naming a company. It needs to sound clean, be a good fit for our brand, and especially for us, have meaning. Countless suggestions were tossed around, but to no avail. Some just weren't quite right, and the ones we liked best had already been taken.
Late one night, while fleshing out some names inspired by Apollo, the Greek god of the sun, we found our inspiration. Chromos was born as a sunglasses company. Our sunglasses not only make you look awesome, but they also protect against UV rays. UV rays are emitted by the sun, specifically the chromosphere. And just like that, we found our perfect name: Chromos.
