How should I go about finding out the exact spelling of a company name or brand name?

This is not an easy thing. You can go to a library and look company and brand names up in authoritative indexes. The reference librarian will help you locate the best resources. Another option is to use the Internet to go to the company's website and look for the official company name or the official names of the brands. There is also a business website called http://www.hoovers.com that may be helpful. You can search for information there, but you should confirm it by using one of the two other methods. While we are on this topic, it is very interesting to find out the etymology of company names. Learning the story behind the naming of Amazon.com, Apple, Exxon, Google, Nintendo, etc., is something you can get a kick out of and share with others.
