Question Will the new Rapide be branded "Lagonda"?

The last Lagonda (not including the occasional prototype) was the old 1976 wedgemobile. Looking back, Lagondas were mostly big saloons and I wonder whether Aston Martin might revive the name for the new Rapide?

It's a traditional name for Aston sedan (my favorite one was the Lagonda based on old V8 (before Virage)) and I don't personally like the name Rapide (brings not to fond memories of old Skoda Rapide from the early 80's)
