We haven't played a name game in awhile. I was thinking the other day how names often have a meaning outside the name referance. Please list the name and a definition (if needed) Here's one we should all know both meanings for - Dick.

I'll start with...

BRAD

1 : a thin nail of the same thickness throughout but tapering in width and having a slight projection at the top of one side instead of a head

2 : a slender wire nail with a small barrel-shaped head

Mercedes


Mercedes was a brand of the Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft (DMG) which began to develop in 1900, after the death of its co-founder, Gottlieb Daimler. Although the name was not lodged as a trade name until 23 June 1902 and had to wait until 26 September to be registered legally, the brand name eventually would be applied to an automobile model built by Wilhelm Maybach to specifications by Emil Jellinek that was delivered to him on 22 December 1900. By Jellinek's contract, the new model contained a newly designed engine designated as, Daimler-Mercedes. This engine name is the first instance of the use of the name, Mercedes, by DMG. The automobile model would later be called, the Mercedes 35 hp.
