Name Follows Function

Maybe form follows function for some buildings, but there are a lot of items we use every day that are named for what they do. Here's a list off the top of my head:

bottle/can opener (abrebotellas y abrelatas)
letter opener
magnifying glass
foot rest
CD player (tocadiscos)
projector
shrimp peeler
blender
printer
lighter
washer/dryer
dish washer (lavaplatos)
nail clippers
wire cutters
(bubble) mailer
money holder

I hope that was as fun for you as it was for me. I may come back later and add stuff to this list.
