Friday 20 Oct 2006: Starbucks
The chain of coffee shops Starbucks was (more or less) named after a character from the novel Moby-Dick, Starbuck. It is said that one of the founding partners suggested to name the shops Pequod, after the ship in the novel. When the other two founders rejected this idea and one proposed Starbo, the name of an old mining camp, they finally settled for Starbucks.
