Core Duo/Core 2 Duo were named such for this exact reason.

That reason of course being confusion of the masses. They want you to think "Intel" when you think dual core (the latest buzzword the masses are just starting to pick up on) so they went with a product name which sounds almost identical.

It's a marketing trick is all.
