The SUV derives its name from the 'city of Bayonne' in the southwest of France. As the Bayon is primarily a European product, the South Korean went ahead to name it after a European city. The French town is positioned between the Atlantic coast and the Pyrenees mountains, popularly known for fun and adventurous activities like sailing and hiking.

For the past 20 years, the carmaker has regularly taken inspiration from locations across the globe to generate some of the best-known nameplates among SUVs. The Hyundai Tucson and Santa Fe SUVs were christened after cities in the states of Arizona and New Mexico, respectively, and even the Kona SUV derive its name from the district on the Big Island of Hawaii. Also, Hyundai's fuel-cell electric vehicle - NEXO has a geographic connection, taking its naming inspiration from Nexo, which is one of the largest towns on the Danish holiday island of Bornholm.
