More precisely, it's named after its manufacturer, SOLA, "Societé Luxembourgeoise d'Armes, SA" ("Luxembourger Firearms Company, Ltd."), located in the city of Ettelbrück. Manufactured 1954-1957, was chambered for the 9x19mm caliber and used Schmeisser MP-40 magazines. There are more details in this Luxembourger Wikipedia page (can anybody translate?). Besides, two variants of the SOLA were made, one called the "Super", chambered in .38 -Super Auto, one called the SOLA "Léger" ("Light") in 9mm with a shorter barrel.
