What gets me about the name is that BB&T is headquartered here in the Carolinas, they know how badly their name is going to roll off of the local tongue.

(also, as a complete idiot, it never occurred to me that BB&T ballpark might be named after the headquartered local bank... please don't make us have to call it the Truist ballpark... please don't make me have to call it the Truist ballpark).


Truist name is actually a play off the very old Sun Trust name. Trust Co of Ga.  Trust Co due their connection with Woodruf until 2009 was the largest holder of Coca  Cola stock with 5% ownership costing them and carried on their books for under $250,000    It greatly distorted their balance sheet under GAP lower of cost  or market.  For stress tests they could only count the $250,000 cost lol.
