is used for one or more of its offices or websites where deposits are accepted or requested.
When one bank purchases another bank, the name recognition and reputation of the bank being purchased may be very well known and established in its market area. Rather than change the name of this bank, the bank making the purchase will continue to use the acquired bank's original name as a trade name, to benefit from its good name and reputation.
In addition to having physical branches to accept deposits, many banks have established online deposit accepting websites (also known as "URLs" or "Uniform Resource Locators"). Some of these websites will be named similarly to the name of the bank, such as, the website for a bank named "ABC Bank" being named "www.abcbank.com." However, some banks will also have websites that have names that are not connected to the actual name of the bank.
