    Who was confused? Datsun became Nissan in the US in 1986. I was in 8th grade or Freshman in HS. No confusion at all. In my mind at the time, Datsun sounded cheap. Nissan did not.

    "Chrysler "is Anglicized spelling of the German "Kreissler" from the Palatine. His patrilineal ancestry traces to one Johann Philipp Kreißler of Guntersblum, which is east of Darmstadt, about halfway between Mainz and Mannheim. His lineage is basically German, since his ancestry is Palatine German (Rhine Franconian) and West Friesian from the NL Guntersblum.jpg W Germanic Dialects.jpg

    Yeah, it's from "stella" alright, and once you dig and find that it's just a declension of "stellans" meaning "set or adorned with stars," you have to think, "man, that's stellar!" How forward thinking can you get in the new space age?

    Have to quote myself to correct myself

    "Stellantis" is the genitive singular of "stellans," which means "starry, having the appearance of stars, set or adorned with stars."

    No, Stellantis IS the corporate name for the merged PSA+FCA. It is the LOGO that has yet to be announced.

    "The Stellantis name will be used exclusively at the Group level, as a Corporate brand. The next step in the process will be the unveiling of a logo that with the name will become the corporate brand identity. The names and the logos of the Stellantis Group’s constituent brands will remain unchanged." https://www.fcagroup.com/en-US/medi...ing_from_the_merger_of_FCA_and_Groupe_PSA.pdf

    I think I've found the first rejected Stellantis corporate logo candidate.

    For those who would like significance in their corporate holding company names, consider that Latin is a natural common-language for a French and Italian company, and also that the meaning "adorned with stars" is a good description of the flag of the United States.

    Sounds like the name of a space ship or some silly planet in a sci-fi movie...

    Also by removing the name of brands from the corporation they open themselves to consider discontinuing a few of those brands...
    It will be a lot less shameful to put Chrysler out of its misery in a group called Stellantis than in a group called Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

    Space age, you say? Seems like it was the Space Age when I was a kid in the early '60s back when JFK was President! But, yes, I realize that you said new space age.

    It's still the old space age until humans land somewhere else then we've already been.

    To see the logo of Peugeot who's a lion and the logo of Holden who's also a lion. You wish then GM would had sold Holden to Peugeot instead of pulling the plug.

    Btw, the guys of Autoblog posted another article about the Stellantis name.

    My 1992 XJ Cherokee was pretty damn reliable, despite its RENIX ignition and brakes, Ferd electronics, etc.
