Yes, I have to admit that I am little irritated when, on being told my
car is a Rover, people either look completely blank or they ask whether
that was the LandRover company, as if LandRover were the company name
(which admittedly it may be since it was split away from Rover) rather
than merely the name of one Rover model among many.

I enjoyed Glen's unraveling of the Saloon part of the name and now find
that it is NOT a pub crawler's association ;-))
The name of the Rover CAR Club of Canada has a similar history. When we
started, there were LAND Rover clubs out here. I contacted the Rover
Car Company and asked if there were any Rover CAR Clubs in Canada. They
said that there were none registered with them or with British Heritage.
The rest is history.
