I think MB is called that because its two guys different names. Mercedes and Benz=Mercedes-Benz. Why do you need to know all of this? Or is it just out of curiousity?

The questions in my first post were from a contest in another forum, the other questions were just for fun.

And Mercedes-Benz is because of the daughter of Daimler (I can't remember his first name), and Benz because of Karl Benz :)
