English translation:the names to demand, to weight, to measure out
Explanation:
Exigere is a very multifaced verb. I think here it means "the names to demand" as a promotion of some brand or company name.

neutral  Fortiter: "to demand the names" (Latin infinitive often is put at the end of the sentences but that place is not to follow in our languages because the meaning may change)
