Nokia's Branding Oops: Lumia Can Mean "Prostitute"

History should have taught Nokia's branding managers and agencies that there must be a certain diligence when creating artificial product names. Could that new name already be in existence, possibly in other languages, along with their slang versions? A simple Google search could have told Nokia that lumia carries the meaning of prostitute in conversational Spanish. I am looking forward to those special editions of Lumia phones. There could be a rather tasteful Lovers Lane Lumia phone wrapped in lace, a slightly more aggressive version that gives a rubber bumper case new meaning, or a raunchy Flagship model that comes with all the bells and whistles, including pre-loaded databases for every major city, website subscriptions and plenty of over-age-18 apps. Someone must put those 25 GB of free online storage to good use, right?
