The latest software update requires a name for the car and we have a discussion in the family whether it is male or female.
What do you consider?
What's the breakdown on males and females in the family? If more female, then add a male name. Or the opposite.
One good thing about naming it female is the car is silent. Nice change! Just kidding!!!!!! ;-)
It does not "require" a name. With that said, you could go with a gender neutral name. I named mine Sparky and I am sure I am not the only one.
The thing is, this name only shows up on your phone app., or on the software screen. I think it would be neat if one's name replaced the name Model S on the screens.
I'm sure my car is a female :) I named it Eve after the "Eve" character in Wall-E movie
My wife (it's her ride) gave the car a gender-neutral name, "Chocolate Brownie." That's because it's one of the very rare, and discontinued, brown ones. It's a machine; we're not into anthropmorphism. One of the joys of the English language is that it doesn't feel the need to assign a gender to everything.
OP: None of the above.
My car is a female named Joulie!
My S85 has a gender-neutral name, but I'm hardly a gender apologist. All things include both in some proportion, including both me and my Ionia.
The MS is both beautiful and powerful. I'm moved to keep Ionia more pristine than any other car I've owned, but also tempted to loose the reins on the highway, and not always because challenged. The same duality in reaction to the car can be seen in many threads in this forum, and doesn't always reveal the gender of the writer. If one insists on declaring one or the other, it becomes a matter of what is most obvious or most desirable to you – posing for the camera or racing down the road like, um, current through a conductor.
I named my car Rocinante. My wife has declared she sometimes feels like Sancho Panza along for a bizarre trip chasing windmills.
Mine are both chicks. First one gender neutral - White Lighening.
No name yet for newborn Titanium 70D. Any suggestions?
Our first was named Ruth and our current one is Maeve.
We think of the T as male.
With a body like that, it has to be a female.
Nice size headlamps, good smile, and a great rear end !
"I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you walk away"
I mean drive away...
My car has a female name. I was sure to have it sign a prenup.
My wife decided that our Red S85 is a male. We decided to call him Zeus after the Greek/Roman god who liked to hurl lightning bolts down upon those that displeased him. An early form of road rage?
My car identifies as non-sexual.
neutral "das auto"
das auto ist sehr schnell :)
Female: Eleanor. We call her Ellie.
Trap Queen is a girl.
With those curves it is definitely female.
And mine is named Evie
Like every great starship, mine is female.
Cars and boats are always women, IMO.
My wife will name her "Nomadia"!
It's an inanimate object--gender neutral.
Nikki (a female Nikola).
Another Sparky. Consider him male.
Evey is female; named for Natalie Portman's character in "V for Vendetta".
Great line in that movie, "Then you have no more fear anymore. You're completely free."
My wife calls her "Ehvy" just to be different :)
Ours has the gender neutral name "Awesomemobile"
"theshit" also gender neutral
Buzz...could be male, could be gender neutral.
What names are you considering?
@Bonlaw....How about Titan? (short for titanium)
No way! You didn't name your car Mclary!? If so, what's the gender?
Mine is Ivy. I have the great looking (and obsolete) green with a black roof..
Where do you look to find out? Under the rear hatch, I assume; but I'm not finding clues, and it's not as if I have no experience.
I've never considered any of my cars as a gender.
My Tesla has a female name.
Paging Dr. Freud...
It is one that you make up and then enter.
My car is officially (through the software) named after a spaceship designation (Star Trek universe for added nerd factor) but most of my friends just refer to it as "Tesla" and in one case she has informed me that "Your Tesla's name is Tesla and she is a girl" so I guess I'll go with that ;)
'Future Testament' will be female, like Andromeda Ascendant.
Sid, first of all, the story starts when a battery and a motor love each other very much...
Anyway, I don't know about you folks, but mine 'charges' female. It might be transgender, but I haven't asked.
Is your car named "Bruce"?
GAGSTESLA, uh, no.
Actually, mine is one of the many firefly class transports out there: Serenity.
He is a stallion.. Hengist Branfell Tesla.
Robert Heinlein's best characters were powerful, quiet women (probably because he adored his engineer of a wife, Ginnie). Ergo, our Tesla is a "she".
"Things of beauty, grace, and speed are always referred to in the feminine manner". ---Waldo, from The Little Rascals.
Mine's name is M (as in BMW) Slayer. Guess it could be male or female, or any of the other 5 genders now available...
I was thinking that whenever I'm able to afford one, I'll either name it the Millennium Falcon, Enterprise, or NCC-1701-D. :)
Definitely female. Natasha. We call her Natty for short, or gnatty when she needs a bath.
