    '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.

Yes her child was named after an Italian sharing bread and Whitney Houston given the year ! lololol I.still laugh about it even today .I.Also knew of a drug dealer in ' the area' back in those days with kids called Chantelle Mercedes and Suki Porsche...he btw drove a complete out Metro !! 😉

      The father said "Corona is a beautiful name because it is the Latin for Crown. But they also said it may be their temporary names because their family keep yelling at them about it.
