    Default Guess I'm in a pissy mood about typing aNueNue.

    I guess I'm in a really pissy mood about the typing of aNueNue, is it really that difficult to type the name properly? Not Anuenue, not anuenue, it's aNueNue (ah-nu-eh-nu-eh). Must be from the heart burn I've had since lunch after that lengua burrito.

    This seems like a poor branding choice on their part. You shouldn't have to work to get the internal capitalization of the name right for it to be recognizable (or satisfying). I imagine the misspellings that bother you are less "difficult" and more "didn't realize."

    To me, the ukulele maker is obviously (or so I thought) named after the Hawaiian word. I would never in a million years have considered capitalizing the "N"s. In fact until you pointed it out I hadn't registered that it wasn't just "Anuenue". Huh. Poor branding.

    Papa Gnu came home from work and mama Gnu complained that Junior had misbehaved. I need you to discipline him!

    I’m sorry, he replied, you are going to have to paddle your own gun.

    Bye, bye

    I completely disagree. The fact that the spelling of their name comes up every now and again tells me that their branding is spot on. The name makes to brand distinct. Whether they get some animosity directed towards them because the spelling is another matter.
