What color do you think I am? ~ How did cars get their name?

Today I decided to combine two challenges (Black and White Friday and What colors do you think I am?).

Manufacturers have large departments where they decide only on the name of a particular model. Naming a car is one of the most important things. The name must be striking, easy to pronounce, and politically correct in all markets. An accidental name brings additional costs and can completely ruin a car’s reputation.

Here are some examples:

1. Audi TT

Audi named the TT model after the Tourist Trophy motorcycle race, which takes place every year on the famous Isle of Man.

2. Lamborghini

Lamborghini has a rich history of naming its models after bulls.

3. Nissan Qashqai

The best-selling mid-size SUV in Europe is named after a Turkish-speaking tribe living in the Iranian Zagros Mountains.

4. Volkswagen golf

Golf got its name from the bay current, which is called golfstrom in German. Passat is the German term for trade winds, jetta got its name from the jet stream, and scirocco is the Mediterranean wind that blows from the Sahara.
