Why Good Car Names are RARE

Thanks to Omaze for sponsoring today’s video! For your chance to win a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance and support a great cause, enter at

Ford Mustang. Dodge Challenger. Toyota Tacoma. Some car names are so good, you can't imagine them being anything else. But sometimes, cars get dumb names. I'm talking REALLY dumb (Nissan Rouge anybody?). So how does that happen? We'll show you how cars get named, both good and bad.

    Here’s the worst car name that I know of: When Honda first announced the car now known as the Honda Jazz, it was named the Honda Fitte, which is a horrible name for a car, as that word is one of the words for the area below the belly of a female. If I say the actual word I’d get some repercussions, but search it up on translate, it should work

    From model names, I absolutely love these: Škoda Octavia (current 4 generations of Octavia share name with Octavia built between 1959 and 1971. It was named Octavia because it was the eighth car produced by the nationalised Škoda company.) Praga Piccolo (another Czechoslovak car brand. Piccolo was mid-range model for people that didn't want to buy larger and more expensive Praga models such as Alfa, Grand or Mignon.)

    dumb is dumb, but VIPER, COBRA, STINGRAY, BARRACUDA(animals) are cool, even vw rabbit... the worst names came from europe and japan spec cars(Silvia, Celica, TRUENO, Elise, midget, areolas atoms, gumpert, fak me... Kia is the sound i make when karate chopping Hyundai is the sound i do when i get kickd in the nuts, Ceed, is plant babies, soul is a korean town... them asian bois go mad , fat lady Z, germans too i8 (i ate), in the other side of the spectrum, brittish have the coolest names for cars: Cerbera, Sagaris, Senna, Phanton, Silver ghost, Vulcan, Valkyrie, Virage... but u might not agree, i think Koenigsegg has the coolest, Bugatti second, Lamborghini third, but the single best name Jensen Interceptor(makes my 9yold brain giggle)

    McLaren Senna. Senna definition, a laxative prepared from the dried pods of the cassia tree. I don't know, maybe they're implying that the car is so fast it'll make you 💩 yourself... Thought for sure there had to be another definition but if there is, I can't find it.

    At the time, the Hyundai Veloster was contemporary with the release of Jurassic Park, and I would guess was intended to evoke not only “velocity” but also “velociraptor”. As such, it is usually mispronounced with the four syllable “Vel-os-i-tor” instead of the three syllable “Vel-os-ter”.

    Consumerism is getting so bad that companies will start collaborating with eachother on cars. Like the Chevy Starbuck that comes with a cappuccino machine built into the dash. Or the Ford Amazon that comes with the ability to use your car as a physical shipping address.

    In Brazil we have a mix of cool ass names and hideous ones, like: Volkswagen SP2 (São Paulo Model 2) Gurgel Itaipu (Itaipu Dam, one of the biggest in the world) Volkswagen Gol (literally the most beloved moment for brazilians, a football/soccer goal) Miura Saga (Since it was full of tech stuff inside, well... it was supposed to be fiction. Thus, saga) VW Brasília (Our country's capital, not Rio you dumbasses) Chevy Marajó (A river) Toyota Bandeirante (Explorer) Fiat Toro (Bull, in spanish/italian, not in portuguese... we say "touro") Ford Ecosport (portmanteau of Ecologia/ecology and Esporte/Sport) Chevy Veraneio (Summer Holidays) Fiat Prêmio (Prize) Ford Corcel (Stallion) Fiat Argo (The boat that the greek hero Jason sailed on) There are plenty more but that was already too much... Anyway we know how to name some shit, aight

    As Great Wall Motors was brought up in the run down of worst car names, I think their recent naming effort of their subordinary brands definitely deserves a shout. Here's just a few examples that sounds just as dumb as it does in English as it did in its original language. And yes, these are names of actual cars in production: Ora Good Cat Tank 300 Haval Big Dog My guess is that they were deliberately making these awkward-sounding but admittedly, memorable names out there to obtain maximum publicity. And who knows, maybe this will eventually turn out to be beneficial to their sale figures
