I cannot remember where I read that the Bearcat trade name was actually after a car and not an animal but I remember it seemed to be fairly official.And this is the winning answer.
However, with the "Bear paw" symbol (with three or four toes) being used suggests someone thinks the name "Bearcat" is realted to an animal. Therefore, a history of the "Bear paw/animal paw" symbol might help us see if the different name origins are associated in some way.
Of course, I really do not know the answer but it show history is not a very straight forward process.
