This I didn't know. My dad used to own a 1997 Mazda 626 from 97 till 2001. He'll be pretty surprised when he hears this.

This is a known fact and is acknowledged in the Mazda Web site.

The origin and meaning of "Mazda"

The company's name, "Mazda," derives from Ahura Mazda, a god of the earliest civilizations in West Asia. We have interpreted Ahura Mazda, the god of wisdom, intelligence and harmony, as the symbol of the origin of both Eastern and Western civilizations, and also as a symbol of automobile culture. It incorporates a desire to achieve world peace and the development of the automobile manufacturing industry. It also derives from the name of our founder, Jujiro Matsuda.
