Name your car

Name your car

My understanding is you can create a name for the car. I am curious what clever names people have come up with.

There was already a thread awhile ago that asked this...

jordanrichard | September 19, 2014

I know it's not too creative, but I named mine Sparky. Though it's nice that the name appears on the "software" screen, I think it would be great if in place of the words Model S, it would have your car's name in the same size and font.

speaking of names, James are you a dentist?

Haggy | September 19, 2014

He could be a DMD, which is a medical doctor/dentist. Or he could be a doctor from Maryland. Or maybe he went to medical school twice.

PBEndo | September 19, 2014

"medical school twice" - that's why they call it practice!

PBEndo | September 19, 2014

A DMD is a dentist (no different than a DDS, just depends on which school you attended) so the M may be a personal initial. However, I am wondering if he is a dual-degree oral surgeon. Some oral surgeons get both MD and Dental (DDS or DMD) degrees. MD+DMD = mdmd.

Stela (an anagram)

Haggy | September 19, 2014

I may have gotten it backwards then. Perhaps he's a Marylander who is a doctor.

Red Sage ca us | September 19, 2014

Probably will be either 'RED5IVE' or 'RED5AGE'.

Blue Thunder...a P85 with 30+K miles and 3 weeks before my first anniversary...I used to walk 3/4 of a mile to get the mail, but I now can drive an electric automobile...

Wattson. Or Wattsun. Haven't decided which yet.

Mr T

BrassGuy | September 20, 2014

Defender. I wanted something like a superhero name, but not too aggressive. It defends our bodies and the planet. It was also my favorite arcade game.

Mistry | September 20, 2014

My kids came up with the name "White Lightning" for our white model S. No relation to the Burt Reynolds movie.

lunknugget | September 20, 2014

Ours is "Toothless" from How to Train Your Dragon because the face of the car looks like Toothless the dragon every time we see our reflection in the back of another car.

Ryan D. | September 20, 2014

Silver 85 called "Quicksilver", an homage to the cartoon (Silverhawks) from the 80s.

allan817 | September 20, 2014

Black Mamba - swift acceleration, deadly on curves and just bad *** to look at.

ronmarcusps | September 20, 2014

Mine is currently DR TSLA (which will also be my personalized plates), but I'm now thinking of STELA if can steal NOGAS4G's idea of an anagram. . .

SCCRENDO | September 20, 2014

Trying to get ideas from you guys but you're not being very helpful. Maybe I should stick to my old faithful sccrendo.

Blue Steel (Zoolander reference, but also, it's Blue)

Ohms.Law | September 21, 2014

Wholly original. Know no one would have thought of this without seeing it here:

Mireille & Conan wrote, "Ruth - named for the White Dragon from Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels."

Excellent! After decades, I finally took the time to read these, and I loved them! I had put off reading them far too long, just as I had the books by Octavia E Butler. Glad I did, though!

A play on "EV" (my plate is TSLA EV)
The female names "Evie" & "Evey"

Do you suspect I may over-think this stuff?

yes - eruptive, disruptive, Earth power unleashed

Tessie. Sorry.

bucuneer | September 21, 2014

Anyone know how to change your car's name after entering it?
My kids don't approve of the hugely clever name...Silver.
Don't they get it? The car is...silver. So I named it Silver.
Right then - how do we change what we've done?
