* Xerox (photocopying machines). In Mongolia, it's Canon. It has advanced to the point [[http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2011/03/identifying_photocopy_machine.html that]] a man has never remembered hearing of photocopying as anything other than 'Xerox'.

** The LEGO Group has officially answered a question from various people if it is correct to refer to multiple pieces as "LEGO" or "LEGOs". As obvious as you may think the answer would be, they said that they are both wrong. It is correct to use "LEGO" as an adjective, as in "LEGO pieces" or "LEGO sets".

** Also, don't you dare call that Obi-Wan figurine that came with your LEGO ''Franchise/StarWars'' set a "Lego", either. It's called a "[[LEGOMinifigures minifigure]]". Even your local news will come after you.

Added DiffLines:

* Taylor Ham (a form of processed pork product native to and beloved in UsefulNotes/NewJersey and legally termed [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pork_roll pork roll]]): In North Jersey and among some in Central Jersey, pork roll is called "Taylor ham" irrespective of whether it is actually Taylor-brand pork roll. This is because "pork roll" was a hastily-chosen name for the meat after the federal government ruled that it could not be marketed as ham; South Jersey went with the new official name, while North Jersey kept the older usage, and Central Jersey (where the stuff is ''from'') uses both.

* Browning: Semi-automatic handgun, usage is generally more common in Europe and especially Western Europe.[[note]]During [[TheEdwardianEra the start of the 20th century]], the great majority of semi-automatic handguns sold on the European civilian market were John Browning designs and had his name prominently stamped on the side. Most such handguns of that era in America were ''also'' Brownings, but were manufactured by Colt and did not carry Browning's name.[[/note]]
