Careful Consideration

The Verge, regarding the naming of the Lumia by Nokia:

While naming its bright and colorful line of Windows Phone devices Lumia may have been an accidentally apt decision, it wasn’t perfect, and more careful consideration may have revealed the fact that the name colloquially means “prostitute” in Spanish.

This translates into the said word in a dialect that’s not widely used even in Spain, let alone elsewhere.

Perhaps a more careful consideration would have revealed the fact that The Verge translates to “the genitals” in French.

Good of the commento(e?)rs ripping them apart.
