What's the name of your car?

Just curious, have you named your car? What is it, and why?

Originally I named mine Ninja for stealth, speed, and black. It went cold as it's not personable.
Then I named her Stela, same letters as Tesla, and famously linked with the word DESIRE
When I got the car, the size and power simply do not match the name Stela.
This morning, I like the name Nelson - Nelson Mandela is in SA as EM was from, he's black :-) and he changed the world; Nelson Piqué was an F1 driver, and he's fast.
Hope this one sticks.

How about you?

If you keep changing your car's name it's never going to come when you call it.

Our gal (pearl white) is named Ruth :). She's our white dragon; any other Anne McCaffrey fans out there?
Most folks are surprised to know she was named after a guy!

I call my tiburon grey 85 the Land Shark.

Ours is Gertrude, black on black. The name has no meaning it just came about.

Joules. Tried Tessie for a while and it didn't stick once we got her plates on her.

She's not even born yet, but she will be named Nessla, or "Nessy".

LandShark - nice. "Candy gram... flowers..."

Captain Zap - argh! Good one, wish I had thought of it first.

Bolt...and she's a girl. Her and I like to go Bolting. Wanted bolting as a vanity plate but wife wasn't a fan.

Though neither Italian nor royalty............Her Majesty the ConTesla.

My husband calls his car HAL ("Open the pod bay doors Hal" is always heard as he approaches the car)

I like your name of Joules @Captain Zap. I may have to steal it. Can I have your blessing?

Don't own one, but it'd be called Chester or Kirby. :)


Kids named her Tessa for Tessa Altman, a character in the TV show Suburgatory.

I wanted Eve, but the wife nixed that and we settled on Eevee. I was lobbying for Jolteon plates, but my son nixed that idea so I have generic plates for now.

(Yes, you need to be a pokemon fan of this to make any sense)


Looking at her from the back, its definitely a girl, so I named her Nikki after Nikola Tesla.

@ jbunn - I'm afraid to ask... what is it about your car's rear end that makes it female? LOL



My old home office looked down over the drive, and I had to back her in to get to the plug. Looking down and from the rear, you can see the car has "curves". On one of the other threads about little things we like, it was described as hips or butt and a narrow waist by several people.

Even my wife who thinks ive lost it for naming the car, remarked one day "this car has a big butt"

Two ton Tessie


Mine's a sexy redhead, but a bit of a larger lady, so I named her Joan after the character in Mad Men.

We used to have a blue BMW 7 series with tan leather interior. My wife's name for her was "Big Blue". I had a dream the night before our blue MS delivery. "Big Blue" was reincarnated into "Electric Big Blue". Her new plates read "E BGBLU".

Nikola or NikolaS might be suitable :-)

@Mirielle & Conan +1 for Ruth the Dragon. Been too long ago, just added Pern to my mental list of series to go back an read. Thanks.

@billbaggy (no relation to Bilbo Baggins?) Same name, but my wife's S is called "Tessa" short the "The Countessa".

On a side note, my Sig Green Roadster is named Kermit. He's my little green friend.


I'm going to try to get a custom plate.

Kallisto -- from the Greek for "most beautiful." In Greek mythology, she was a nymph of Artemis (Diana) and was transformed into a bear by Artemis out of jealousy. (Long story ...) Zeus ultimately transformed her into the constellation Ursa Major.

I use Joules too. Can't take credit for it thought. I think I saw @Captain_Zap mention it a long time ago.

FWIW, my son calls the car Rocket.

Flash drive to match the license plate.

The birth will soon take place and the name will be ELon®
Licenseplates in Norway starts with EL and (for Electric) ends with 5 numbers
