Should you not know or not have realised it years after your study: "video" literally means "I see" and "Volvo" (the Swedish car brand) means "I roll" in Latin.

    Volvo also means "I return" in portuguese and galician

    And "Audi" is Latin for "listen!". That's a play on another brand back then, "Horch", which was the same in German.

    @Fast-Nop More specifically, the founder of the car manufacturer "Horch" (named after him) was forced out and as the name was trademarked (and he was sued for using it further), he then used the literal Latin translation of his name to found the competitor "Audi".
