I think the name was meant to invoke the voyage's place from Part III of Gulliver's Travels, a book written in 1726 by the Anglo-Irish writer Jonathan Swift.

Think about it, that word existed longer before the profanity.


Well, according to the article, Jonathan Swift was fluent in Spanish so he might or might not done it on purpose. Is still a long shot, but anyway, doesn't really matter what came first, the name is still a golden spot in the bad-sounding Spanish words, along with the Mitsubishi Pajero and the Nissan Moco, so name a few.

As a Spaniard, the name never fails to amaze me.
