What's in a name?

In my line of work, I deal with many companies worldwide.

Today, looking through a list of jobs, one immediately caught my eye:

"Gondwana Forest Products"

Now, any longstanding EMD forum member would (well I did!) immediately think of everyone's favorite Fastmail CEO and forum member, Bron Gondwana!

This company is supplying "Coolibah Caps" to a UK company.

A spell of googling followed, in which I learned about:

Gondwana

Quote:
Gondwana or Gondwanaland was a supercontinent that existed from the Neoproterozoic (about 550 million years ago) until the Jurassic (about 180 million years ago).
Gondwana Rainforests

Quote:
The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, formerly known as the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves, are the most extensive area of subtropical rainforest in the world.
Gondwana Kingdom

Quote:
Gondwana Kingdom was the ruling kingdom in Gondwana region of India. The Gondwana region includes core region of eastern part of the Vidarbha of Maharashtra, the parts of Madhya Pradesh immediately to the north of it, and parts of the west of Chhattisgarh. The wider region extends beyond these, also including parts of northern Telangana, western Odisha and southern Uttar Pradesh.

The Gondwana Kingdom was ruled by Rajgonds. The Rajgonds are the ruling class among the Gond tribe. The Gond Tribal is the dominating Community in Gondwana region. The name Gondwana named after Gondi people.

Gondwana means "Country inhabited by Gonds".

My kids both sang in Gondwana Voices for a couple of years... that was interesting!

There's also a clothing brand. I had a very nice "Gondwana" brand jacket for a while but I lost it at LAX last time I was transiting through
