I'm a non-native English speaker recently trying to launch my own company named "Origin Authentic"

And I'm also planning to launch a brand named "Honey Authentic" which is to be a name of a dessert cafe.

Does this "something authentic" series make sense to you? If not, does it make you feel weird when is heard at least?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

  • "something authentic" makes perfect sense. "Noun Authentic" is problematic. – pazzo Apr 17 '15 at 6:13

No, English naturally puts the adjective before the noun. If you want to put the adjective after the noun, you would have to make it sound exotic (e.g. "Honey Authentique"). Although, oddly enough, "Origin Authentic" sounds fine.

    Not being correct, grammatical English makes very little difference to its suitability as a brand name – DJClayworth Apr 17 '15 at 5:28
