MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Where did they come up with the name Pepsi?

Maybe you just had one with lunch, or over the weekend you enjoyed a nice cold Pepsi. But where did they come up with that name?

The name Pepsi actually comes from the word “dyspepsia,” which means indigestion. The reason being that the original reason for the drink was to help help your stomach if you had digestion issues. It seems to do the opposite now, but that was the original purpose!
