In French, the name ├ętron means (litterally) fecal matter

I guess this could be like the Chevy Nova - it didn't sell well in Spanish speaking countries because No Va means No Go

The Spanish market appears to be fraught with such issues. The Mitsubishi Pajero (w_nker) was renamed to the Montero especially for that market despite being named after Leopardus pajeros, the Pampas cat which is native to the Patagonia plateau.

If this car makes any good sales among french canadians, it will not be because of the cool name. I'm expecting my fair share of bad jokes.... :|
