Why "Thunderbird"?

According to "Palm Springs Life" magazine, the car's final name did not came from the native American symbol as one might expect, but from an ultra-exclusive housing tract in what would later be incorporated as Ranch Mirage, California: Thunderbird Heights  
Prior to naming the car the Thunderbird, Ford asked and was granted permission to do so from Triumph Motorcycles in England who had a Thunderbird model motorcycle of their own at the time.
