Tika in kannada means ass, so that name would be off the list in karnataka at least!

I think Tata should thank their stars. Imagine Zika blowing up a couple of months after Zica launch.

If someone is listening out there, Civet, Tiago and Adore are all third-rate names compared to Zica which itself didn't sound great. This is like sending fire tenders to douse fire and those tenders are on fire themselves.

I sincerely hope Tata Motors releases a second set of names for which we can vote.

If they were listening to their customers just like M&M is doing, they wouldn't have been in this kind of mess.

Civet - the recall factor is strongly associated with its excreta. The animal, in fact, is in the middle of a huge scandal that's brewing up, another kind of Blood Diamonds story that involves greedy Indonesians.

Tiago: Common Latin American given name. Leading gay porn star of Brazil.
Incidentally, the name of Messi's son is Thiago, TATA should have named this car "Lionel", if they want to get that much associated with the Messi family.

Adore:

I guess a lot of folks on the internet are using the term "civet cats" while referring to civets (because of their cat-like appearance). Here is an interesting video of "civet cats" with real cats:



The cats in the video must be thinking, "OMG! Just observe the table manners of these fellas. And some humans still call them civet cats!"

None of the three names is special in any manner. IMHO, a golden opportunity has been squandered!
All terrible names in my opinion.

What was wrong with Kite or Mint (code name for original Indica in 97 - MINi Tata).

Tiago sounds like a LCV vehicle - Piaggio, Maxximo, Gio etc,

Adore is in the line of Amaze.

Civet is better of this three.

What a tight situation for Tata?! Car is out but no name yet.

Meanwhile, silently KUV100 crosses 21K bookings.

I suggest the name Tata Ratna. A tribute to the legend Ratan Tata.

Arrow re: Tata wants your help in renaming the Zica! (Edit: Now renamed Tiago)

1. Adore : What kind of name is this!! In that case why not something like "Gujiri". Tata Gujiri sounds more apt than Tata "Adore".
2. Tiago This is a very cliche name for a car (Punto,Vento,Figo and add to that list Tiago)
3. Promptly voted for Civet. For me this name at least represents harmony with nature which we are destroying in and out.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiago suggests
Quote:
Tiago and Thiago are variant of Diego and in English Jacob
So in English speaking countries, it will be called TATA Jacob

MODS: Can we please add a Poll here. Lets see the choice made by the BHP-ians

Completely endorse your views. Frankly speaking, TML failed to assess the impact-time frame of Zika virus news. Ziak virus news is as good as dead now. If you develop a good product and back it up by the competent service centers, your product will be in demand irrespective of its name.

I think any name will have some negative in some language somewhere. So as long as it does not have an obviously negative meaning (which means one does not have to google and do some research to come up with a negative meaning), Tata should be ok. In any case most of our car names are weird-Like a Duster or a Creta.

Personally feel they should have stuck with a 4 letter word. Matches well with Tata (Bolt, Zest, Nano,Aria, Kite, Sway).

Or as someone suggested on FB and reported here in the first page, they should just call it 'Nut' Since they have a 'Bolt'

Well, using law of elimination used back in school for MCQ's, I went ahead and voted for Tiago.

Clivet came out like glivet which did remind me of a particular single malt (mods, please delete this part if against forum rules)

Adore - lesser the said the better in my opinion.

Frankly,
Can't convince myself for any of these.
'Adore' is the least horrible of the lot. :(

But still - it's not 'THE' one.
Kite was best.
Zica was ok too.
But these ... are disasters.
Making the car less desirable day by day.

These are the names we had suggested.

Well, I had sent the following suggestions, which, now I know are of no use:

1) Aida
2) Reviens
3) Elpis
4) Eolus
5) Fido
6) Amor
7) Nerva


Heck, I really thought I had a good chance of getting at least one name selected
