If I was to opt for M20 as a reference, things are a bit different.
6 roads in different countries are known as the M20
One nuclear missile (French SLBM)
One Chinese ballistic missile
A pistol, a bazooka, a rocket, and a rifle
A BMW engine
Two different computers - one Italian, one Russian
Two different smartphones
....and a nebula.... the Trifid nebula.... somewhere out in space :)
