One of the fun things you get to do as you launch a new company is decide on the name. There’s a lot to consider… your products and mission, how it sounds out loud, how it’s spelled, and of course, domain availability. As Ceresa was being created, CEO and Founder Anna Robinson sought something a little unexpected, and in her research, ran across the Roman goddess Ceres.
In ancient Roman times, Ceres was the goddess of agriculture, fertility, and motherly relationships. Her name is derived from the Proto-Indo-European root kerh (“to satiate, to feed”), which is also the root for the Latin crescere (“to grow”). With our mission to help women grow and thrive, “Ceresa” just seemed like a natural fit!
Pro-tip: CERESA sounds like “Theresa” with an “S”!
