At Volkswagen Santa Monica, we’ve got a wide inventory of vehicles with distinct names in our Venice area showroom, but what do they mean? Volkswagen, itself, means “the people’s car” in German, and speaks to the popularity of this brand. Many of the current model names also have interesting, unique meanings:

  • Beetle: This iconic VW vehicle received its current name from its unique shape resembling the bug — although most don’t know it was originally called the Volkswagen Type 1.

  • CC: The recently retired VW CC is one of the more straightforward VW names, meaning “Comfort Coupe”.

  • Eos: This convertible is named after the Greek goddess for dawn, since the convertible offers unbeatable views of our mountainous skyline.

  • Golf: The Golf is named for the natural occurring Gulf Stream.

  • Jetta: This name translates to “jet stream,” hinting at its sporty performance.

  • Tiguan: This spacious SUV’s name comes from a combo of “tiger” and “leguan”, which means “iguana” in German.

  • Touareg: This VW SUV was named after the nomadic Tuareg people of the Saharan desert — encouraging you to go on adventures to new destinations.
