OK, so the other day Scootervillain was telling me that the name "Stella" came about NOT in reference to Marlon Brando in Streetcar (or even Ned Flanders), but in reference to "Star."
Apparently, the scooter made by LML was marketed across the water as the "Star" and Phil McCaleb wanted a different name for the North American marketplace.
Scootervillain said that "Stella" was Italian for "Star."
This all makes perfect sense to me. Unfortunately, I don't speak any Italian, just Latin (blame our education system), and the Latin for "Star" is "astrum" which doesn't seem very close to "Stella" to me.
