... always been interested in how some bicycle parts get "name/branded". some of my favorites are:

suntour superbe pro. what is a "super - be" exactly.

super champion gentleman/gentlemen. tuxes anyone ?.

shimano dura ace. what is a "dura-ace" exactly.

sugino mighty comp. probably the best one ever. good thing they didn't brand it a wimpish noodle.

anything with simplex or super light on it.
