No need for intro. I'll get the ball rolling.......

bigmac, hoover, merc, ,jumbo jet, Bic, shake,coke, T-shirt, are just a few examples of simple names that are easily identified with the product and have stood the test of time. They are well known and used as they are all over the world .
Do you know of any others??

Yale (locks), Google (search), Tannoy (PA systems), Walkman (portable music players) - brand names used interchangeably with the products they represent, regardless of manufacturer, like 'Hoover' and 'Coke'...

Brands so memorable you forget they're brand names! A marketeer's nightmare!
