Unless you work for the monster truck industry, you”ll surely vote with us on this for the Czech car brand ‘Skoda’.

Skoda means DAMAGE in Czech, not the kind of attribute most insurance companies are looking for…. 


Bonus Fact 1: so, what’s the worst name ever given to a car? – that would probably be Chevy Nova. In Spanish, ’no va’ means ‘won’t move’.

There are almost 500 million native Spanish speakers… oops…


Bonus fact 2: Looking for a car blessed by God? – better check the Italian car brand FIAT.

On 11 July 1899, FIAT’s founder a devoted catholic named Giovanni Agnelli, was searching for a name for his new car factory it was only natural he would choose FIAT.

On one hand, Fiat in Latin means “let it be done” when God proclaimed “let there be light” it read in Latin “fiat lux”. On the other hand, Fiat is an acronym for “Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino”, meaning loosely “Italian automobile factory of Turin,” the region in which the country was founded. Seems like a match made in a haven
