Favorite Jewish Brand & Store Names
« 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.

What's the issue with this one?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

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 :)
