Mazda cars are named that because the car company was founded by MATSUDA Jujiro (born 1875). The Japanese language has fairly straightforward pronunciation but does have some peculiarities - like mute vowels. For example, the mute vowel is often the letter “u” when it is not the first syllable of a multi-syllable Japanese word. It’s why samurai is sam’rai (not sa moo rai), Mitsubishi is Mits’bishi, desu is des’, and Matsuda is Mats’da/Maz’da.
Japanese didn’t have family names during Feudal times and only the highest up in a clan were identified by the clan name (eg, Ieyasu TOKUGAWA). When the Edo period ended in 1868, Japan started modernizing. About a decade later, Japan started the family registration program. People took last names, which is why people’s family names are often places. Hence, it probably was not a coincidence that Matsuda Jujiro lived near Matsuda, Japan.

Did Jujiro Matsuda really live near Matsuda, Japan? I don't know where that is but I know he is from Hiroshima and he lost his son and many of his employees in atomic bomb in 1945.
His family has been the main owner of my favorite baseball team Hiroshima Carp. I think they hold about 35% of stock and other local companies own the remainder.
Btw Toyota Motors is headquartered in Toyota, Japan and the founder is Mr. Toyoda. But it's a very rare case where the city changed its name in 1959 after the city had grown large because of the Toyota corporation. One of two cases in Japan where the city changed its name after an organization.
