Favourite people’s first names to feature in
50 new names for ‘Share a COKE®’ campaign

– Kiwis to nominate the names of people they most want to ‘Share a COKE®’ with

The search for 50 new names to feature on COKE® bottles has begun, with COCA-COLA today inviting New Zealanders to have their say on who they want to ‘Share a COKE®’ with next.

“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, COCA-COLA 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.”

From today, people can visit shareacoke.co.nz 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 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 by COCA-COLA from years of public names records and input from community groups to ensure that New Zealand’s unique identity and diverse population was well-represented.

“Now we want to give New Zealanders the chance to have their say. Popular names, rare names, unique spellings, ethnic names, nicknames – we’re really excited to see what names are put forward and why.

“We encourage people to get creative with their nominations and to join in mini-campaigns with friends so they can share a COKE® with their favourite people.”
