What's in our name?

I've had many people ask me what does Bonghi Natura mean, or how did I come up with it. Well here's your chance to find out! It was my husband who actually came up with name. Bonghi is a family name, this was the last name of my husband's great-grandfather, who immigrated to America from Italy in 1911. Bonghi was changed on the immigration records for what we can only assume was a misunderstanding, or an attempt to sound more "American". This name signifies the beginning of a new generation in America, and it's because of it's roots that we were inspired to give our products that "Old World" Italian flair. Natura simply means nature. So there you have it, a little history on how we came to be called Bonghi Natura.

I love hearing how people come up with their names - it's so hard to come up with them!! Great job on the name (my hubby also came up with mine!)
