Cars on the other hand, have names (Safira, Kadett, Twingo etc.), so I wonder if Sony came up with a new model called Henry or Takako or the like. Or, say, Takako X.

Camera makers do tack on extra names. Rebel, Coolpix, FinePix, Lumix, Merrill(Sigma), Stylus, etc. Sure, for many that name is used for a rather broad range of products, but so it is for cars. I.e. Honda Civic 2012 comes in 7 different flavors.

And there are plenty of car makes that don't use names: Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Infinity, etc.

Always thought E-Volt was the coolest.
