Best Answer

According to the company, "Subaru refers to a star cluster in the Taurus constellation. The name is echoed in the famous Six-Star badge." The word "Subaru" in Japanese means "govern" or "gather together", and also refers to the group of stars known as "The Seven Sisters" or "The Pleiades". One of the stars, Myrop, is rarely visible to the naked eye, which may explains the six stars on the Subaru badge rather than seven, but also that 5 smaller manufacturers joined together to form one larger manufacturer fits this association. In Greek mythology, The Seven Sisters were Electra, Maia, Taygete, Asterope, Celaene, Alcyone and Myrop (spelling varies). According to legend, Myrop married a mortal and so her light began to fade - other stories have suggested that she is the youngest of the seven sisters and simply not old enough to stay up late...

What does Subaru mean to the Japanese?

Quote from the Related Link: "The Subaru telescope is named after the young star cluster Pleiades, whose Japanese name is 'Subaru'. Japanese people have admired the beauty of the Pleiades for over 1,000 years. 'Subaru', originally pronounced 'Sumaru', means 'to get together' or 'to tie together'. It is a befitting name for an internationally open research facility." I would assume it means the same as the name of the car.
