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".
#1 Chanel No.5
#2 Porsche 911
#3 Levi’s 501
#4 Heinz 57 varieties
"57 Varieties of Pickles" was initially the slogan, though in fact the company was producing more than 60 types of goods at that time.
But Heinz believed in magic of 57 - it consisted of his favorite figures. To add to this, Heinz thought number 7 has a positive psychological effect on people.
1)First 7up bottles were 7 ounces in volume
2)initially the drink consisted of 7 ingredients
3)Lithium was on the drink's ingredients, and its atomic mass is 7.
For a long time in US lithium had been considered as an excellent cure for depression. Manufacturers stopped using the dangerous ingredient only in 1950.
#6 Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7
But there are a lot of legends: that Jack Daniel had 7 girlfriends; that he lost a batch of whiskey and found it only 7 years later; that the recipe was invented only after 7th attempt...
The most convincing theory was suggested by Peter Krass, Daniel's biographer: initially Jack's distillery was marked as "7", But then authorities changed its number to "16". Jack neither wanted to argue with authorities nor to confuse his customers, so he started using inscription "Old No.7".
