Sportswear company Adidas was founded by German Adolf Dassler in the 1940s. The name -- which is rumored by many to stand for "All Day Long I Dream About Sports" -- is actually inspired by Adolf's nickname, Adi, and the first three letters of his last name. The correct pronunciation is AH-dee-dahs.
