Yip, I remember those the Minjeeta name, was the actual manufacturer's name for the model how's that for market research.

Citreon's CX range had a diesel in it,Citreon were going to call it a 'VD'......until someone suggested they check it's meaning in English.

Similarly the Toyota 'MR2' was sold as the 'MRS' in France....MR Deux sounding too much like Merde.

There is a quicksilver pilot house here called 'DaiTanic'.....makes me chuckle every time.

Lancia were going to call a small car they made in the '80's, the 'y 10'; until someone pointed out, selling a pale chicken in the uk would be difficult

Friend of mine has a small (12'? 10.5'?) RIB called "Baby Back"

In the US (don't know about int'l) there is an offshoot GPS/Chartplotter made by a company called Fugawi. As in "Where the Fugawi?"
