What does Skoda mean?

What does Skoda mean?

While Skoda does translate from Czech to mean "Too bad!", Skoda Auto is actually named after a Czech engineer. Emil Skoda owned Skoda Works, a leading arms manufacturer for the Astro-Hungarian military. In the '20s Skoda Works acquired Laurin-Klement, the car, motorbike and bicycle manufacturer, to rebrand the company and operate as the car manufacturer we know today.
