Yep, "Scotch" tape. Named by a painter in a General Motors body shop. 3M didn't put adhesive in the middle of the tape and the rest is history.

From Wikipiedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch_Tape

The use of the term Scotch in the name was a pejorative meaning "parsimonious" in the 1920s and 1930s. The brand name Scotch came about around 1925 while Richard Drew was testing his first masking tape to determine how much adhesive he needed to add. The bodyshop painter became frustrated with the sample masking tape and exclaimed, "Take this tape back to those Scotch bosses of yours and tell them to put more adhesive on it!"[7][8] The name was soon applied to the entire line of 3M tapes.
Hey! I resemble that remark. (As I type on a second hand phone).
