Find out what stands behind numbers in the names of famous brands

It turns out that some figures in the names of famous brands actually do have a hidden meaning and some originated by chance!

When we pronounce names of well-known brands, saying like, "I love Chanel No.5" or "Buy me a bottle of 7up", we don't think what these numbers in the name mean. But it is quite strange that Gabrielle Chanel called her first perfume "No.5" and not "No.1".

Do you know any other examples of meaningful numbers in brand names? Tell us in the comments below!

Never knew they used Lithium in 7up. It has been used for Bipolar Disorder, not Depression.

I don't know why a good Brazilian Caipirinha is called "51" (...cinquenta e um...) But it had a most fantastic add campaign that went...: "Cinquenta e um, ..., uma boa ideia...!!" (51, a good idea). It was so popular that whenever you wanted to say that some program was a good idea, you just said,..."cinquenta e um...!"
