'Mercedes' was the name of Benz's daughter. When he constructed his first car he named it after her. Hence ' Mercedes'.
'Toyota' and 'Nissan' are Jaanese family names.

I guess it just sounds better. Maybe for the same reason Violet is a nice name but the name Purple just sounds weird.

I read, Mercedes is a Spanish is a feminine name, derived from María de las Mercedes ("Our Lady of Mercy" or "Mary of Mercies"), which is one of the Roman Catholic titles of the Virgin Mary.
Toyota was founded by K Toyoda and Nissan from Nihon, it also has a meaning in Hebrew.
Who knows, people in Japan might have those names.
