B is for ???

While examining the University of Alabama toothbrushes I gave my brother for Christmas (no subliminal messages there), I posed the question: What does the "B" in Oral-B stand for?

After "brush" was the best answer we could come up with, I decided to do a little digging – only to find the answer could be one of two things: "brush" or "better". Brush makes sense, but I found another source that said "Oral B is a combination of oral hygiene and the letter B, which stands for the words better."

Granted the second answer sounds like a bunch of B.S. to me...but I guess we'll never really know...
