Sprink

I wonder how much consumer research this company did before deciding to name their product 'Sprink'. I'm guessing they thought it was a catchy shortened form of 'sprinkle'. But the problem is that the name sounds too much like 'Stink', which is exactly the wrong association for a room-rug freshener. Must be why it doesn't seem to have been on the market more than a few months.

Also sounds like “spank,” which can be either a good thing or a bad thing...

Or a mix between "Spring" and "Pink", which is probably what the marketing team had in mind.
