That brings to mind some obscure dirty thoughts that I can't seem to bring to the surface.

maybe it hadn't "put out" any records yet. It was still a virgin in the record industry

Did Richard Branson start out making Transformer radios in his parent's shed?
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 9/18/02 - 1:00:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
He started out selling mail order records from a phone box.

Actual reason. Virgin started off as an airline when he was on the virgin isles.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 9/26/02 - 8:50:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
he was a virgin at the time or he was seeing a virgin at the time?

I wondered for a while
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 9/26/02 - 9:10:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
its memorable, therefore a good name

It's pure and not corrupt like other companies.
13 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/21/07 - 6:03:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe because he never had any virgins and that's why he named it after one so that he could say he finally got himself a virgin...

I think it has something to do with the fact that he owns one of the Virgin Islands....
