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.

Press the T logo in the middle of the screen. Then press the name and change it.

BarryQ | September 21, 2014

As for the name: Heart of Gold.

No Enterprising trekkies?

sbeggs | September 22, 2014

@moorelin,
nice.

NetWatchR | September 22, 2014

Brian H, I'm surprised too. I'm sure someone would have chimed in with something like "NCC-1701-T"

J.T. | September 22, 2014

I tried naming my car "lolachampcar", when I hit enter the name changed to "In Your Dreams".

ElectricSteve | September 22, 2014

Silent pedestrian killer: Red Death...

(Ok I made that up. Car is 8 days from delivery and dunno a name yet).

patrickclaerhout | September 22, 2014

Mine is called MUSKTANG.
After another iconic car and to pay some respect to Mr. E. .

J.T. | September 22, 2014

@patrickclaerhout That's also a nice refreshing reference to the US manned spaceflight efforts.

@Red Sage
Wow, can't believe I've missed Octavia E. Butler! Will definitely try her books. Thanks :)

Nexxus | September 22, 2014

Mine is called Red Rocket. Whoosh!!

J.T. | September 22, 2014

I tried naming my car PBEndo. Car said, "It's been taken, like 1000 times."

Roddy | September 22, 2014

Stealth....as we like to drive in stealth mode about the neighbourhood.

nbrianjohnston | September 22, 2014

It's not original, but I named mine Elektra.

riveire | September 22, 2014

Jarvis - while it is a little bit of a nod to the Marvel Empire, I like the nod to Elon Musk as a very real Tony Starck.

kalel65 | September 22, 2014

KITT

p.shirish | September 22, 2014

Mine is called "Bijlee" - means lightening in Hindi.

Red Sage ca us | September 22, 2014

Mireille & Conan: One thing I didn't realize until I had read five or six different books... All of Octavia E. Butler's books take place in the same realm. Even the books that seem as if they are standalone still take place as part of the same continuity. Even the books that seem as if they are different series, are tied to each other and share the same history. The good thing is that it doesn't really matter what order you read them in, much like Anne McCaffrey's Pern books, they will be good no matter how you make your way through the library. (I've decided that all good science fiction is ultimately about time travel anyway.)

riveire: As a longtime fan of Marvel Comics, I believe that Elon Musk is actually a bit more closely aligned with Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) than Tony Stark (IRON MAN). Brain the size of a planet, interested in the advancement of mankind through science and exploration, doesn't care about money, hot wife, great kids...

Mitseah, which means "bargain" in Yiddish

I was waiting to see KITT in there somewhere

As a Lord of the Rings fan and a mother who's been reluctantly driving a minivan for the past 10 years, I've named mine "My Precious."

sbeggs | September 27, 2014

@3crazykids, ha ha!

I've owned my MS for over 18 months and now being able to name my car I call it - Charly Horse -.
This car has been working very hard for/with me and it's giving me good cramps again again. It's the best car I've ever owned, however for the past 16 years a Rolls Rocye Corniche served me as everyday car.

Dave-LasVegas | September 27, 2014

What I've called it ever since it arrived just in time for Christmas 2012: Midlife Crisis.

sbeggs | September 28, 2014

@Dave-LasVegas, haha!

GAGSTESLA | September 28, 2014

IVY, for the green color.

appleblossom-us-pa | September 28, 2014

My significant other and I had decided on "Daisy". Some friends (who were over getting the OMG test drive experience) asked why not "Miss Daisy"? We both simultaneously did a forehead slap accompanied by a loud "duh". Now we are driving "Miss Daisy"

sbeggs | September 28, 2014

@appleblossom (nice name), that is a great name! Enjoy!

Neal.slafsky | September 28, 2014

Hovercraft. My wife named it on the first day a year ago. 22k later it still feels like we are floating. Vanity plate is HCRFT.

Captain_Zap | September 28, 2014

My hovercraft is full of eels.

Mathew98 | September 28, 2014

I tried to name it ELEKTRA base on the comic book character - the female assassin in red. My wife ask, "Why, is it after Carmen?"

"No, I would have named it Boobies"

Now it is named the "Red Boobies".

From Orson Welles "Citizen Kane", one word says so many things. To some, it means what really
matters, is the freedom and pleasure of riding your sled.

"ROSEBUD"

Red MS 85

Harvey | September 28, 2014

Gus. Just plain Gus!

Captain_Zap | September 28, 2014

@okeeriderdavid

Wow. Now that is a name that says something.
You finally are with what makes you happy.
Good to know you are enjoying the grin.

Pearl

Bet you can't guess what color my MS is...

Jeff

faikob | September 28, 2014

@Ianceneveu I was thinking of going with Toothless also.

I still like calling her Bruce as well. You can't tell Bruce Wayne is Batman because he's not dressed like him. You can't tell my car is the Batmobile because there's no bat on it. My wife won't let me get one painted on.

I'm still undecided. She's only been here a couple of days.

ebender888 | October 21, 2014

As a diehard Florida Gator, I had no choice but to name her:

Alberta Gator
