How Did Elon Musk Get the Name Tesla? — It’s a Weird Story

It may come as a surprise to some that Elon Musk did not create the Tesla brand name. 

He went to some rather outlandish measures to get the trademark for the name.

To put it plainly, Elon Musk is a divisive figure. 

With his recent takeover of Twitter and the surge of hate speech and bigotry on the social media platform, 

he has attracted a lot of unfavorable attention. In addition, Musk seems to pick a quarrel with someone new on the internet every week.
