Mercedes was the name of two Oscar winning actresses: Mercedes McCambridge who won an Oscar in 1949 and Mercedes Ruehl, who was awarded an Oscar in the year 1991. It is also the name of the lost love of Edmond Dantes in the highly acclaimed literary work ""The Count of Monte Cristo". The German luxury car by the name Mercedes needs no introduction.

I also happen to be a Mercedes. It's also a German name, but incredibly out of date so you rarely, if ever, see the German usage anymore, it's pronounced: Muer-tzay-deez. It means intelligent and strong-willed.
