Want to see your name on a Coke bottle?

coke names on bottles nzSome of you lot were unimpressed with the 150 names Coke recently chose to feature on its New Zealand bottles. Well, here's your chance to remedy that: it's on the hunt for another 50 new names and calling on Kiwis to have their say.

“First name fever has hit New Zealand with the ‘Share a Coke’ campaign – we’ve fielded hundreds of requests from people looking for their name and the names of others special to them. We’re now asking New Zealand, whose name should be next?” says Brid Drohan-Stewart, sparkling beverages marketing manager.

“The final selection of the 50 new names will reflect the excitement and passion of our consumers as they nominate and vote to get their favourite person’s name across the line ... Popular names, rare names, unique spellings, ethnic names, nicknames – we’re really excited to see what names are put forward and why."

From midday today until September 23, people can visit to nominate the name of someone they want to ‘Share a Coke’ with. The nomination process includes the opportunity for people to share why the chosen name and person is important to them. From these nominations, a shortlist will go to public vote in October to choose the next 50 names that will feature on a new release of Coke bottles later this year.

The original 150 popular names featured on Coke bottles were identified from years of public records and input from community groups.
