Cars can have inspiring names; names like Ford Mustang and Aston Martin Vanquish stir the soul. Certain other names poke at the funny bone, however. Some are just laughably bad attempts, while many others fall into the category of "that probably sounded better in the company's native language." For some reason, Japanese vans seem to be the most likely to have a really insane name, name.

Some of these are truly horrific — so horrific that the Mitsubishi Pistachio didn't even make the cut.
