What's the name of your car?

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?

Elsa. A riff on the letters in Tesla, and reference to my son's favorite movie for now (but he only gets to request 'Let it Snow' once per ride).

It was Reddy Kilowatt until my wife gave up her driver's license. Now it's Miss Daisy.

name: "The Liberator"... any other Blake's 7 fans here?! :)

"Zen, set speed Standard by 12!"... ;) :)

It liberates me from many things... gas... other cars at a stoplight ;)... pollution... un-needed engines... crappy service... pushy dealers.... needlessly complicated dashes... cars that don't have 17 inch touch screens and internet connectivity... the list goes on.

It's electric and it's blue. After the King of the Electric Blues: Muddy

swid | April 9, 2015

Just like @Muddy: mine is electric (silent) and (midnight) blue - but we went a totally different direction. She's called "Silent Night".

However, my 4-year old can't say Tesla, and pronounces it Tezzala, which has now morphed into "Tessie Laura", which is what the kids all her.

So her mild-mannered alter ego is Tessie Laura, but her superhero identify is Silent Night.

Xela. My daughter's name spelled backwards. Xela came home on the same day that Alex came home only 16 years later. Alex wants to think that Xela will be hers but she's wrong. Alex will be out of the house next year but Xela will stay!

Picking mine up today. Thinking that Mother F-ing Spaceship might be a good name.

mr56 | April 10, 2015

Or Mother F-ing Batmobile.

Now I'm torn. Just feel that Mother F-ing needs to be in there. Any votes?

EVA - Acronyms are fun because they allow for a variety of interpretations:
- Extra Vehicular Activity (NASA term that clearly applies to an MS)
- Electric Vehicle A*** (our last name)
- It is the phonetic spelling for the sugar plantation town I spent my teen years in Hawaii: Ewa

Mine is called Flying Dutchman - after a Dutch sea captain and his legendary ghost ship. Widely feared by other sailors.

Also Flying Dutchman:
- A type of Dutch bicycle, I bought years ago as a student in Delft and still own
- Der fliegende Holländer, Opera by Richard Wagner
- A famous British racehorse from the 19th century, regarded by experts as one of the greatest
