What does the title of a streetcar name desire

Have you read the play?

Stella: But there are things that happen, between a man and a woman, in the dark, that sorta make everything else seem unimportant
Blanche: What you are talking about is brutal desire. Just desire. The name of that rattletrap streetcar that bangs through the Quarter, up one old narrow street and down another.
Stella: Haven't you ever ridden that streetcar?
Blanche: It brought me here, where I'm not wanted, and where I'm ashamed to be.

Now reread the first line above again.

Desire is the one thing that make Stanley and Blanche similar. They both desire something that is the total opposite of what they really get or give. Blanche wants peace and calm, but she lives a life of constant lies and turmoil after finding her young husband with an older man. Stanley wants to live a life of wealth and wants to be superior to other by having power of them (just as he raped Blanche).
