11 Unfortunate Brand Name Translations

Old Sam Greenspan over on his website 11points has compiled a list of brand names that all have very different meanings in other languages.

He didn't, however, include the most popular one - the Mitsubishi Pajero, which as we all know is Spanish for wanker.

Check out his other lists. They're usually quite entertaining and well-written.

  1. Guess Gerber being "vomit" in french is the most ironic and unfortunate. But I like the whole list.
