Name changer…

I’m just wondering why “automobiles” which basically means a mobile that can be moved automatically, was changed to a cars, what was wrong with calling it my new automobile?

And oh by the way “mobile phones” which basically means its a phone that can also be used mobily (without a wire) was changed to cell phones. What’s with the cell? Is it a brain cell, white cell, basement cell or a red cell?

Interestingly enough its still called a mobile in the UK which is shortened from “mobile phone”.
