The acronym DKW initially meant "Dampf-Kraft-Wagen", because the first products manufactured by the company were small steam (later gasoline) engines; they also started to produce toys afterwards and the meaning of the acronym was changed to "Des Knaben Wunsch". Another version of the name was adapted for motorcycles they had produced: "Deutsche Kleine Wunder". This name has remained over time and has appeared in several promotional texts of the brand around the world.
