Brand names in Chinese

Recommended Posts

Is it true that there are brands names that have different pronunciation and meaning in Chinese? My Chinese student noted that Ray-Ban, which my current eyeglasses means "Thunder friend" while Gucci means "Ancient fine Jade." Some successful examples include Coca-Cola (Kekoukele), which conveys "taste and fun", Reebok (Rui bu) meaning "quick steps" and Colgate (Gau lu jie) which translates to "revealing superior cleanliness".

To my Chinese friends, please reply with some brand names and their Chinese meaning. I'm so amazed.
