Trashy Lingerie and other great names

Remember when Trashy Lingerie showed up on La Cienega in the early 70s?

Where did they come up with that name?

Or the Apple Pan, for that matter?

Or Spearment Rhino?(or is it Rhino Spearmint?)

Best fun read for Angelenos has got to be this article from LAWeekly: "How Six L.A. Businesses Got Their Weird Names."

It actually came out in early December but I was probably asleep. I must have done a Rip Van Winkle, since it's clearly July now and I slept through the entire winter.
