Wot'd you say? Porsche means Pig

Word of the day: There are different explanations on offer for the name Porsche.  As a ex-Latin student, one who never paid much attention, I fancied it would mean beautiful, or something like that - offering is also given as an origin.  It would seem, however, that it is a variation of Portia, from Porcus, meaning Pig.  Have a look.
