Brand Name Potential
The Pacific islands incorporated into Tuvalu have many distinctive features. One is that they have the internet abbreviation 'tv' and that brings business. Just off the south coast of Islay is the 600-yard-long Texa. It has its own fresh water supply, potential pasture and a history of settlement mainly of ecclesiastical origin, centred around the church pictured above. Its name, from the Gaelic tradition, is also used by a company specialising in vehicle diagnostics. Perhaps it's as well that there are no roads, just ruins, on the islet for there could have been a company-buyout for branding purposes.
