SunTrust and BB&T merger: Here’s the name of the new bank

The biggest bank in Atlanta is getting a new partner — and a new name.
The 
combined SunTrust and BB&T will be known as Truist Bank, officials announced Wednesday. Expect to see that name (pronounced TRUE-ist) splashed across the region in the next year or so, from the Braves stadium in Cobb County to one of the city’s tallest skyscrapers.
