In case anyone at C&C was confused about whose car it was....
It’s actually good that they broke the name up this way, makes sense in Japanese and it’s history:
History of Datsun Name:
Datsun started out as a car produced by a company called Kaishinsha Motorcar Works. In 1914, it was making these little, quick and agile cars. Three of its designers put their initials together to create the acronym D.A.T. In Japanese, “dat” means “to dash off like a startled rabbit,” which was an appropriate name for the kind of cars they were making.
Eventually, after some company changes, the name became “Datson” to mean “son of Dat.” A little while later, the “son” became “sun” because in Japanese, “son” means “loss.”
