That's an oldie but a goodie. Possibly they are. All bottled water is a con. You don't need it in countries where we have safe tap water. It's environmentally damaging without actually being safer.
LOL, very clever observation. The name however is the name of the town the spring was situated in and not a subtle joke on customers. It would certainly have been a bold and dangerous marketing move if that was the case. There is a discussion about the Evian name at snopes which is worth a read http://www.snopes.com/business/names/evian.asp
I have never thought about Evian spelt backwards!!! how naive am I.

Bottled water is a god-send, for troops in the battle field(yes they do have it) to just like me yesterday....dying for a quick drink, while on the road.
I think one of the most humbling pics I have seen of late was a American soldier giving his bottled water, to a child in Iran....where fresh water, is not easy to come by.
We tend to forget some places on the earth.....have very little water or clean at that!
No. . . . they can't help their place name. I drink tap water at home and boiled or bottled water overseas. I can't see the sense of paying water rates AND buying bottled water.

I really haven't thought about it, and I have never purchased it, so I really don't care.
