Coca-Cola brings back its personalised drink bottles with hundreds of Australian names

Coca-Cola has announced it is bringing back its personalised drink bottles. 

Hundreds of names on iconic Coke bottles and cans will hit shelves around Australia featuring popular and unique monikers, surnames and even nicknames.

Showcasing the diversity of the country, the names range from Shane, Tom, Emily, Josh, Jess, Ruby and Sarah to Ajay, Hassan, Zhang, Taj, Giuseppe, and Paolo.

The soft drink giant will also print multiple spellings for popular names, including Caitlin, Katelyn, Caitlyn, Kaitlyn and Kath, Kathy or Cathy, or Isabel, Isabelle and Issy or Jon, Jonathan and Jono.

If you can’t find a name in stores, you can go online to personalise a limited-edition glass bottle of Coke with your name or order one as a gift for a friend or family. 

But Coke fans have been quick to spot that the brand has banned some names from being used, including Jesus, Mohammad, Jihad and Your Mum.

‘Coke has a proud history of championing inclusivity and we are thrilled that the hundreds of names we are releasing this summer reflect the wonderful diversity of Australia in 2019,’ Vamsi Mohan Thati, president of Coca-Cola Australia, said.

‘We want to give all Aussies the chance of joining in the fun and sharing a Coke this summer.’ 

As part of the Share a Coke campaign, shoppers will find a variety of nicknames and Aussie slangs, including ‘Old mate’, ‘Champ’ and ‘Legend’.

‘Coke will release multiple spellings for many popular names in a nod to Australia’s fondness for unusual spellings,’ the brand said.

‘Families can also join in the fun with 1,000 surnames such as Smith, Williams, Nguyen and Zhou available on 1.25L bottles.’

‘Aussies with unusual names or nicknames or for anyone who likes to shorten names can create their very own personalised bottle via the website,’ the brand said. 

‘So whether it’s for a son called “Bort”, a mate called “Thomo” or because Liz is actually short for “Lizard”, fans will be able to celebrate the special people in their lives by sharing a Coke.’

The world-famous campaign was first launched in Australia in 2011 and was met with an overwhelming response from its customers.
