    Obviously gotta mean something in their own language, either names of cities, geographic locations, persons or words with good meanings, etc. You've got to think it through and double-check what it might mean in other languages, though, when opening your business in foreign countries.

    I still don't know if this was a bad business name, or an all-time great one. There used to be a store in Riverside, California that I would pass on the way to the greatly missed Riverside Raceway. It was called, simply enough, "Used Things."

    Sorry to derail but isn't that where Ken Miles used to race and compete before going to Le Mans?

    Yes, and Dan Gurney, who flat out owned the place. Very difficult circuit, sadly gone.
