22.  Reebok's "Incubus" women's running shoe.
Back in the mid 90s Reebok named a running shoe after a demon that rapes sleeping women. Not so much of a disaster, as no consumers complained, but they were pretty embarrassed when ABC told them about it. Also in the link - the Toyota Cressida named after a philandering woman in the Trojan War...

Mythology - don't use it unless you know it...
