Definitely not that one... I think it was called something else in some export markets where the associations with the name were unfavorable.

for example Prima(Caro) and Celina(Atu) in Netherlands.

I do know a certain Celina, which makes it even more hillarious. Good thing they didn't try that in Poland :D

Oouugh, my wife is thinking about the name "Celina", if we would have a daughter. So for me that name is not to discuss. If I would have a child, it shall not be named as such a car. Sorry, if it sounds nationalistic, but a Polonez is neither stylish or modern. It was even not modern, when it was launched (1977, I think?)

Sometimes you can give your children the name of your car. No kidding, children of Borgward-enthusiasts are very often named "Isabella" or "Alexander".

Hmm, what else can be possible? :think:
Carina? Serena is impossible in Germany - a well known sanitary napkin has that name. Perhaps Arabella or Ariane.

I don't think anybody saw "Polonez" as an especially apropriate name, but then again the vehicle was no wonder of technology either (though I'd say a rather skillful update). Is your wife Polish, or is "Celina" a popular name in Germany (like the Russian "Tania" apparently)?

How about Morris, in case it's a boy?

I know that car as a "Polonez". No, my wife's family was coming from Silesia in 1945, but is German. "Celina" is not very popular -as I know- but about the names, people are giving their children nowadays, often you have to shake your head. My wife likes the music of Celine Dion (me not really) and has heard "Celina" somewhere.

"Morris" would be quite rare - but I'm not a real fan of British cars. In Germany today the most people don't know the British car-brand "Morris", they associate more "Doc Morris", the Dutch Internet-pharmacy with that name.

Well, Ingo, I guess your boys will be called Ewald and Claus ... ;)

I don't think so. These names are a bit oldfashioned - but not too oldfashioned to be popular again. Actually the names from around 1870-1910 are back again.

The avaricious lawyer in the "Hńgar"-cartoons is called "Ewald der Anwalt" in the German translation.

Come on, Ingo, don't disappoint me. You sure know why I picked those names especially for you, don't you?

How about Irmgard or Arnhild for a daugther then?

Would "Huschke" be possible? At least someone, who has participated at the Rallye Monte Carlo with "my" car. "Petermax" I would never take. I lived during my childhood just 50 meters away from his company, a VW-sales-shop. Expensive and arrogant people were over there. And he even didn't answered my request about the "Monte" 1971. Huschke von Hanstein did. His autograph is still hanging in a frame just over my PC.

Yes, now I got it. Sorry, my brain is overkilled. I had to help my wife to prepare Christmas - her whole family will come.
