40 years ago, the founders of msg global wanted to name the company as ‘Munich Software Group’. However, the registrars of the companies in Germany turned them down, suggesting city names can’t be used as the company name. The founders got out of the room, discussed amongst themselves, and returned to the registrar with the new possible name, ‘msg’ (a simple acronym to the earlier name). Luckily, the idea worked, and the company registered as msg global solutions and rest as they say is history!
