Rentokil

I used to see the name "Rentokil" on trucks in downtown Chicago. They were a plant service, leasing and maintaining potted plants for office buildings.

Without ever really thinking about it, I wondered over time whether it was a Dutch name, or Scandinavian. Tagalog, maybe? I couldn't place it.

Then one day it popped right out at me. Rent - To - Kill. Oh, so cynically delicious!
