As you all have heard, the Discovery Chief CEO announced the new Moniker for the newly merged Warner Media and Discovery Company during Tuesday morning’s Town Hall Meeting with WarnerMedia employees from the Warner Bros. studio’s Burbank lot.

Warner Bros. Discovery will aspire to be the most innovative, exciting and fun place to tell stories in the world – that is what the company will be about, We love the new company’s name because it represents the combination of Warner Bros.’ fabled hundred year legacy of creative, authentic storytelling and taking bold risks to bring the most amazing stories to life, with Discovery’s global brand that has always stood brightly for integrity, innovation and inspiration. There are so many wonderful, creative and journalistic cultures that will make up the Warner Bros. Discovery family. We believe it will be the best and most exciting place in the world to tell big, important, and impactful stories across any genre – and across any platform: film, television, and streaming.”

David Zaslav, Chief of Discovery

So, the new name for this merged company is Warner Bros. Discovery, and to be fair, it isn’t the greatest name in the world. While selecting the name, they also revealed their new moniker to go with it, “The stuff dreams are made of.” From the 1941 film directed and written by John Huston, The Maltese Falcon. The Moniker is great but it is wasted on a Generic Name, no offense to the team that thought this out.
