Kittenman writes: The name of Renault's new all-electric car, to be named the Zoe (from ZE — Zero Emissions and also from the Greek word 'Zoe', meaning Life) was objected to by two families in France, named Renault, with daughters named Zoe. The judgement is in — the ruling is that the name is a common noun, and open to common use. There are appeals from the families, who don't want their daughters to go through a lifetime of mockery. However — other proper names may now be open for adoption. Windows Fred?
