A cavalry man is called a cavalryman or trooper. A cavalier was originally one who supported King Charles in the English Civil War, who had a definite style of dress for the period. When more broadly defined as a mounted horseman, it better describes a knight than a cavalryman.

If you asked me what a sable is, i would never have said weasel like animal, i immediatly think of an very big antelope. I am sure Mercury were also thinking the same when naming it

quite a snide remark imo. Just because he hasnt heard of a specific model, but does know other models by the same brand. Like I have never heard of honda element but honda civic is extremely well known. Certain models simply are only marketed in a certain area of the world. Which is less obvious than when it is about a car Brand, you have american, asian and european cars. But if a certain brand is prevalent in your country it is not weird you expect you would have the same models ( which apparently isnt the case)

Like Quizmaster essentially says, almost every European car is just a random number, not in any way memorable.

True, and I don't understand why this is. I've no idea what execs at Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Volvo etc are thinking. Sometimes even a car with a perfectly nice name in the US (e.g. the Mazda Miata) gets a stupid code in Europe (MX3, in that case). But some companies do use names in Europe (Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, VW, Renault, to name a few), and other than the Beetle, you've consistently chosen models sold on one side of the Atlantic and not the other. So perhaps the complaint of being US-centric is somewhat justified in this case.

Really? I seriously cant remember ever seeing a car on the road with a number instead of name, and we used to do quite a lot of guess the car on trips. ( not saying there arent any but all the cars I know and see around me have names..) Only one time I have seen a car with a number, and I remember cause I thought it was odd that it didnt have a name, it it when for my graduationday my boyfriend lend a very fancy sportscar. A mazda.. mx6 or something, let me look it up.Well mx-5 exists so that might ve been it.
