What's in a Name? takes viewers on a fun and exciting romp through history, telling the stories of the names we know best—from perfume to hockey teams, cars to cocktails. Every episode begins with someone who needs to name something: a newly invented electric car, a mouth-watering chocolate bar, a baby about to be born. Along the way, experts and celebrities offer advice. Actor George Wendt (Norm from Cheers) gives tips on naming beer, wrestling legend Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan weigh in on punchy names in the ring, and Randy Bachman gives a young band tips on finding a name that rocks. We look at which names have worked throughout history, which haven’t, and why it matters.
