Title: Favorite Jewish Brand & Store Names
Post by: Yehuda57 on February 08, 2019, 12:55:56 AM
Maybe I'm the only one, but every so often I come across a Jewish brand name that makes me cry, cringe and/or laugh.

Are the non Jewish one’s like Goodyear any different? And what’s with those really weird firm names out there in law and accounting like Deloitte & Touche? Change your name to Smith or something....

I always get a kick out of this one - http://www.tzniusprincess.com/ - definitely truth in advertising.

Usually the kosher kitsch comes into play with Asian Restaurant names:

Shulchan Low
Estihana (a play on the Japanese chain Benihana)
Mee-Tsu-Yan

I also always wondered how Carlos and Gabby's got their name - was it because the founders were Chaim and Gavriel, or was it a play on the hispanic couple in 'Desperate Housewives' that was popular when it opened.

But the most Ironic - almost every city with a kosher population (especially so in the NY Area) in the US has a Jerusalem Pizza - which makes no sense to me, since, AFAIK Pizza isn't inherently a Jerusalem thing. And when you go to Jerusalem, the most touristy, american-style pizza place is called - Big Apple :)

Thank you. I couldn't figure that one out until you spelled it out.

Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimbo_Bakeries_USA
The name "Bimbo" was first coined in 1945 when the company switched from Super Pan S.A. A blend of the words "bingo" and "Bambi",[8] the name's innocent, childlike associations fit the image that the company wished to build. The English word "bimbo", with its negative connotations, has no cognate in Spanish.
