Alrighty- since we’re going to be pedantic: The name Mercedes came from the daughter of the French importer, Emil Jellinek. HE was the one who thought ‘Mercedes’ would sell better than ‘Daimler’. Old Man Gottlieb agreed. You know I’m right- check my title.
Nope. You’re wrong. They REALLY wanted to fuck with the fWenchies heads and took American car names “Mercury” and “Edsel” and put ‘em together and came up with “Mercedes“. They just used the ruse of some used car salesman’s daughter’s name to further muck up the rusty gears of the fWench brains.
