Heck many products you buy in one country have a translated name in another country that might not be a strict direct translation./QUOTE]

Sometimes universal names don't translate well.

In the 70's Chev tried to build and sell the "Nova" in south america.
It bombed, partly due to "Nova" roughly translating, "Does not go." or "Does not run."

Oops.:oops: Some marketing executive was probably shown the door.

People need to stop spreading this as truth.

Ah. Another fact-checker! Thanks for helping to turn back the tide of misinformation! Well, not a tide. More like a tsunami since social media came along. :-)
