How did Jo Soh come up with the name Hansel for her company?
It’s actually the name of our family dog. A long time ago, we had a pair of dachshunds named Hansel and Gretel because that was my brother’s and my favorite childhood fairytale. Gretel didn’t stay with us; she ran away. Then Hansel stayed with us until he was really old and died. While Hansel was with us, we had about 15 or 16 dogs over the years — I always grew up with pets. After Hansel died, a new puppy came in and he just had to be called Hansel. It’s the official pet dog name. Unfortunately, No. 2 died last October, but I had the company and it’s named after him.
