There are some well known companies with world famous names and some of these names have unusual origins.
Take the luxury car brand Mercedes for example. Back in the early 1900s financier Emill Jellinek was working with Gottlieb Daimler on the design of racing cars. The name put to their designs was in fact Mr Jellinek’s daughter’s name Mercedes.
Adobe, the global software powerhouse got their name from the river Adobe Creek that ran behind the house of the founder John Warnock.
Have you heard of the company Packard-Hewlett?
Probably not as the name doesn’t exist although it could have been rather different if Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard had a different outcome when they tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett.
