In 1930 Galvin Manufacturing Corporation introduced the Motorola radio, one of the first commercially successful car radios. Company founder Paul V Galvin created the brand name Motorola for the car radio - linking "motor" (for motor car) with "ola" (which implied sound). According to the company the Motorola brand meant sound in motion.
