People Win While Renaming Popular Items With More Apt Descriptions
Sometimes those popular items we buy and use daily could certainly have a better name. The people who named the items simply were not thinking clearly, that's why people have renamed some of those items that clearly have a better fitting name!
ibrabatool asks: If you were in charge renaming things so that their names would be more accurate, what names would you come up with?
a group of Squids should be just called a Squad.
Iceland -> Greenland
Likewise: Greenland -> Iceland
Toilet paper = "crapkins"
Plus, I always thought toothbrush should be "teethbrush" since you clean them all with it.
Apparently thinking in German can really help
Just translate the literal meaning of any German word to English.
Turtle = Shield toad
Slug = Naked snail
Tuesday = Workday
And Finland should be removed from the dictionary.
This is a little small minded, but YAS!
Astronomers become.... Skyientists!
A more fun name for sure
Pregnancy test = maybe baby
Some people already ahead of the curve when addressing this item
Colander = hole bowl
it's not a set of skis,, it's a bike!
I'd rename jet ski to "boaterbike".
An animal that needs a name to match how ridiculous they are
I would rename seagulls to beach chickens.

Got this one from a 4 year old, batteries that have expended their charge are flatteries.
Lets go back to basics
W = double v, not double u
Driveway <==> Parkway
Parkway <==> Driveway
Fingers come in all shapes and sizes
Fries would be potato fingers.
When is it again?
Clocks would obviously be called when machines, do not try to change my mind
Lets be honest here
Breadknife - breadsaw.
This would need some time to sink in
Yesterday is now lasterday
Another German inspired gem
Sorrow Bacon -- Kummerspeck (excess weight gained from emotional eating)
American football -> handball
We will miss the french flair, but this is basically what it is
