Yeah, that doesn't really mean anything. It's a dated brand name that means absolutely nothing. All of its brand value is in the different brands/flavours of their credit cards. Lloyds Banking Group owns MBNA in the UK, but there's nothing saying they might decide to rebrand it. (They have a lot of divisions.) In Australia, I forget who owns them...Bank of America retained the U.S. division, but I believe it was absorbed by the Bank of America brand. Initially, they renamed the subsidiary FIA Card Services, which was a modest improvement, but had little brand value.
