Our company's unusual name can sometimes become the topic of conversation. Many people have asked us, "What does your company's name mean?" Well, for our company, Apheus has a lot of meaning - at least for us! If you do a Google search for Apheus the first thing you'll see is of course our company's website. How did we come up with such a unique name? It's quite an interesting story...
One night, our company's founder was discussing various business strategies with his friend Mike. One topic of conversation was the need to pick a name for his new business. Bob wanted something that was unique, short, and memorable to represent the company's ideals and business philosophies. After turning down several possible names, Mike made a bold and unexpected suggestion. He thought that we should adopt a variation of the screen name he used while playing Unreal Tournament. After a brief discussion and some quick research, it was agreed that the suggested name had a "certain ring to it" and thus, Apheus was born.
But what does Apheus mean? The closest comparison we can make for the name Apheus is the Greek god Alpheus, a god of the river. Apheus sounds "sorta Greek", but it really had no bearing on our decision. Nor did the fact that Alpheus is also a genus of shrimp... We're definitely not in the shrimp business!
