你知道吗,有些我们熟知的品牌、电视剧或组合,一开始并不是叫现在的名字。而且,原本的名字可能和现在的差了十万八千里。今天,普特君就和大家分享其中一些。对于有些老名字,普特君想说,还好你们改名了!

 
Backrub - Google 
网络爬虫 - 谷歌
 
One of the weirdest original names belongs to Google, which, believe it or not, was supposed to be namedBackrub.’ Imagine Backrubing something instead of Googling? Sounds ridiculous, right? Well back in 1996 this was the original company name but was then changed to Google in 1997.
最奇怪的原名属于谷歌。不管你相不相信,它原来的名字叫“网络爬虫”(Backrub)。想象一下,我们不说谷歌一下,而是说网络爬虫一下,听起来是不是很奇怪?但是1996年谷歌公司刚刚创立的时候,确实名为“网络爬虫”,在1997年改名为谷歌(Google)。
 
Mr Cauliflower - Mr Bean 
菜花先生 - 憨豆先生
 
Rowan Atkinson, the genius behind the iconic Mr. Bean character, actually came up with this persona when he was studying for his masters degree at the University of Oxford. The name Mr. Bean came up only after the first program was released, and while pitching different names, one of the suggestions was Mr. Cauliflower. Sounds fun, but nothing would change the iconic Mr. Bean!
标志性憨豆先生形象背后的天才罗温·艾金森(Rowan Atkinson)实际上是在牛津大学攻读硕士学位时创造出这个形象的。憨豆先生的名字是在第一个节目播出后才出现的,在挑选确定不同的名字时,其中一个建议就是菜花先生。听起来很有趣,但是没有什么可以改变标志性的憨豆先生!
 
Lenny, Penny, And Kenny - The Big Bang Theory
连尼、 佩妮和肯尼 - 生活大爆炸
 
This one definitely turned out way better than it could have been. Before renaming Jim Parsonscharacter to Sheldon, his name was Kenny and the famous tv series was called notThe Big Bang TheorybutLenny, Penny and Kenny’.
这个名字改的简直太好了(原来的是什么鬼?)。在把吉姆·帕森斯的角色改名为谢尔顿之前,他的角色名字是肯尼。而这部著名的电视连续剧不叫“生活大爆炸”而是叫“连尼、 佩妮和肯尼”。
 
Six Of One - Friends
六位一体 - 老友记
 
In life, you never know how one tiny decision can change everything completely. So, back in 2012, Vanity Fair released an issue were they wrote down all the things that could have been completely different in the showFriends’. For example, Courtney Cox initially read for the role of Rachel Green, but she chose to play Monica, and Monicas character was supposed to be way darker, edgier and snarkier. But the most important part is the name, and if it wasnt for Kauffman and Crane, we would be stuck withSix of Onewhich was the original name of the show.
在生活中,你永远不知道一个小小的决定如何能彻底改变一切。早在2012年,《名利场》(Vanity Fair)就发布了一期杂志,写下了《老友记》中本应完全不同的东西。比如,柯特妮·考克斯最初读的是瑞秋·格林这个角色的剧本,但她选择了扮演莫妮卡,而莫妮卡的角色本应该更加黑暗、尖酸和刻薄。但最重要的部分是它的名字,如果不是考夫曼和克兰(编剧)的话,就会用《六位一体》了,这是这部剧最初的名字。
 
Brad's Drink - Pepsi
布拉德饮料 - 百事可乐
 
Who would have thought that until 1898 you couldnt enjoy a cold Pepsi but only a Brads drink? And who is Brad? When creator Caleb Bradham invented Pepsi back in 1893, he named it after his surname but six years later he changed it. So in 1902 the Pepsi-Cola Company was born, due to increased demand for the drink.
谁能想到,1898年之前,百事可乐的名字是布拉德饮料?那么,谁是布拉德呢?当创造者Caleb Bradham在1893年发明百事的时候,他用自己的姓氏给它命名,但6年后他改了名字。因此,1902年时百事可乐公司诞生了,因为对这种饮料的需求增加了。
 
Jerry And Davids Guide To The World Wide Web - Yahoo
杰瑞和大卫的万维网指南 - 雅虎
 
Were almost certain that Yahoo wouldnt be so successful if they had kept their original name - Jerry and Davids Guide to the World Wide Web, it just seems a bittoo long. Of course, you could call it JDGWWW, but we think they did the right thing here by changing their name to Yahoo! Which stands forYet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.”
可以确信,如果还用原来的这个名字,雅虎一定不会这么成功。因为它看起来,有点太长了。当然,你也可以念它的缩写JDGWWW,但是改名成雅虎好像是更正确的选择。Yahoo是另一种非官方层级化体系(Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle)的缩写。
 
Mortimer - Mickey Mouse
莫蒂默 - 米老鼠
 
According to sources, if it wasnt for Walt Disneys wife, we now would call Mickey MouseMortimer’. It is believed that his wife hated the name so much he changed it to Mickey Mouse.
据知情人士透露,如果不是沃特·迪斯尼的妻子,我们现在会叫米老鼠“莫蒂默”。据说他的妻子非常讨厌这个名字,所以他才把它改成了米老鼠。
 
Starfish - Coldplay
海星 - 酷玩乐队
 
Coldplay was originally known as Starfish. Later, after the drummer Will Champion joined their group, they renamed themselves to Coldplay and released their debut EPSafety’.
酷玩乐队最初被称为海星。后来,鼓手Will Champion加入乐队后,他们改名为Coldplay,并发布了首张EPSafety》。
 
Blue Ribbon Sports - Nike
蓝带体育 - 耐克
 
This could have been the icon that Nike was known for if it wasnt for a change back in the 1971. The very well-known nameNikewas based on the Greek goddess of victory, and the famous logo, symbolizes the wing of the goddess.
如果不是1971年的变化,这可能就是耐克闻名的标志。耐克著名的名字基于希腊胜利女神,而著名的标志则象征着女神的翅膀。
 
Marufuku Company - Nintendo
丸福公司 - 任天堂
 
Back in 1889, Fusajiro Yamauchi began manufacturing Japanese playing cards in Kyoto. In 1947 Yamauchi began a distribution company called Marufuku Co. It was only in 1951 that the company renamed themselves to Nintendo Playing Card Co. Ltd. and then to Nintendo Co., Ltd. in 1963.
早在1889年,任天堂的创始人山内房治郎就开始在京都生产日本扑克牌。1947年,他创办了一家名为丸福公司的分销公司。直到1951年,该公司才更名为任天堂扑克牌有限公司。到了1963年,才正式改名为任天堂有限公司。
Kara's Flowers - Maroon 5
 
卡拉之花 - Maroon 5(魔力红)
 
Before they were an iconic band called Maroon 5, they were a band under the nameKaras Flowers’, and the name was actually a reference to a groupie who was crushing on all of the band members. After they released two albums under this name, they changed their name for the third one back in 2002.
在成为标志性的乐队Maroon 5之前,这只乐队使用的名字是“卡拉之花”,这个名字实际上指的是一个迷恋所有乐队成员的歌迷。用这个名字发行了两张专辑以后,他们在2002年发行第三张专辑时改名为魔力红。
 
Firebird - Firefox
火鸟 - 火狐
 
If it wasnt for another company calledFirebirdyou would now be using your Internet Explorer to downloadFirebirdand notFirefox’. According to the company, “It's similar to Firebird. It's easy to remember. It sounds good. It's unique. We like it," the company said.
如果不是另一个公司已经叫了“火鸟”这个名字,我们现在使用的浏览器可能就会叫“火鸟”而不是“火狐”了。火狐公司表示:“火狐和火鸟类似,很容易记,听起来也很不错。它独一无二,我们都很喜欢。”
 
Lunar Larry - Buzz Lightyear
月球拉里 - 巴斯光年 
 
If it wasnt for a big script change, the Toy Story we know now would have been completely different. The famous character Buzz Lightyear, which was named in honour of astronaut EdwinBuzzAldrin, would have actually been called Lunar Larry. Wait, theres more, Woody was actually supposed to be a jerk instead of the good guy/hero we all know and love.
如果不是剧本大改动,我们现在知道的《玩具总动员》将会完全不同。著名的角色巴斯光年是为了纪念宇航员埃德温·巴兹·奥尔德林而命名的,但它实际上本来要叫的名字是月球拉里。而胡迪本来实际上应该是个大坏蛋,而不是我们现在熟知喜爱的好人/英雄。
 
Cargo House - Starbucks
货仓 - 星巴克
 
Opened in 1971 this coffee shop was namedStarbucks Coffee, Tea and Spice’. Later, in 1983, the CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz left the company and opened his own coffeehouse called II Giornale. Four years later he returned, purchased the original company and chose to leave the name Starbucks. However before that, one of the names the company had considered using wasCargo House’, which according to co-founder Gordon Bowker would have beena terrible, terrible mistake’.
这家咖啡馆于1971年开业,名为“星巴克咖啡、茶和香料”。后来,在1983年,星巴克的CEO霍华德·舒尔茨离开了这家公司,自己开了一家名为II Giornale的咖啡馆。4年之后他重回星巴克,买下了原来的公司,沿用了星巴克的名字。但是在此之前,公司考虑的一个名字是“货仓”。联合创始人戈登·鲍克称这将是一个非常非常糟糕的错误。
 
有些名字第一眼看上去真的想说这都是什么鬼啊,还好最后改名了。
