Where did the “Paragon” in Paragon Gardens come from?
Way back in 1997 Lachlan and I went on a road trip to the Sunshine Coast.
We were brainstorming new business names as we drove through a cute little town called Childers. From the passenger seat, I saw this building that had so much character and ‘Paragon’ was scribed across the archway.
I fell in love with that word instantly. Lachlan on the other hand, took a few kilometres of convincing. He relented, with a comment that we could only use it if meant something.
About two weeks later we got home and still keen, I looked Paragon up in the dictionary. No smart phones or google in those days kids. The definition read:
"a model or pattern of excellence, or of a particular excellence"
And Lachlan had no choice but to give his stamp of approval.
