Help me name my car... for giggly fun.

So, I got a pretty silver Vauxhall Corsa a few weeks ago. I love it, were it not for the fact that it seems to be going back and forth to the garage an AWFUL lot!

The thing is, we have a silly little custom amongst us student drivers round here about naming our cars. My last car, an older-make blue Corsa was called Bluebell.

I'm stumped on what to name this one, though! The picture enclosed is just a picture I googled (I'm having trouble with my camera right now) but it's a pretty accurate likeness. At the moment I've very unoriginally nicknamed it Silver because of the colour (heigh ho, Silver, away!) but I'm dying for a permanent (better) name, just for laughs.

Anyone have any ideas?

Haha I name everything! I'm living in Europe right now so I don't have a car but I do have a bike named Moe. My friend's car broke down like almost every month so she took to calling her Aunt Flo lol...

I like totally random names for cars. How about...
-Jeb
-Carl
-Flipper
-Sky
-Bullet
-Pixie
-Fred

Ok these names have absolutely no reasoning behind them! Happy naming!

^^ I totally second Dave...that is an awesome name for your car!!

I also name my cars..my first car was a blue citroen AX, this car actually had several names (all used by different people) - he was (all my cars are boys?) bert, moo mobile, dave and trevor

my car now is a green VW polo by the name of Mike. it is short for Micaelangelo (sp) from the turtles as I think he looks a tad like a turtle :D

/hijack!!

sorry...if you dont go with Dave..how about Trevor? as in magical trevor...www.youtube.com . . . hehehe

Just looking at the thumbnail, I thought of Todd.

Dave works too.

Rosa if it's a girl!

I think you should call it the Silver Bullet, but what do I know...

I have a Cruiser named Devil in the Details, but we call her DeDe for short. My other is named Bad Habits and my third is named Mi Sancha. Mi Sancha is spanish for Mistress, because it takes all of my time, attention, and money away from my Wife. My travel van is named VanAgain, as in "Get back in the van again, gas up the van again, spilled something in the van again..." you get the idea. My Wife calls her car the Pooh Bear, because it's little and cute.

If not, then Veronica Vauxhall.

Can you tell I like to match the first letters?

My dad's car is Sarah Sonata and my mom's car is Cedric Civic.

Unless you are fastidious, name it Nature.
Nature abhors a vacuum.

Looking at the thumbnail, I thought Lola.

Though for some reason I like Dave, but I think your car looks more like a girl.

Have you decided yet??

My sister had a car with a numberplate that went LUI *numbers so he was called louie.

Emma's a good name, I've always wanted to have something named after me.

Ive always had a fondness for naming cars/vehicles with really common/not-too-interesting (no offence to any Dave who happenes upon this) people names. It makes me giggle. So Im going to throw my hand up for Dave too.

My new car (hopefully to be purchased this week) may inherit the first name of the studio owner who fired me for being pregnant and in turn paid for my last car (via court settlement) - and this new one - in full.
Her name is probably up there in the top 10 most common female names.

If that name doesnt suit I might go with Kevin. I wanted to name the last cat I got Kevin but no one would let me. Kevin would have suited him so much better than "buddy". Bah!

I call my BFs car Beky for that same reason. Hehe.

^ My friend from home was the same way... I liked it too but I wanted to give my car a little kick, so I named it Norman. STORMIN' Norman.

(It's a gray sedan. :D)

My first car was named Calvin and the second car is named The Stealth (because it's tiny and silver and no one ever sees me on the road). I put my vote to Dave or Todd. My hubby says Ball and Chain - I dunno. Or Greg. Dave or Todd or Greg. Done.

Wow, I didn't expect so much inspiration! Thanks guys!

The name Dave is funny, and I'd consider it were it not that all the boys I couldn't stand when I was 15 ruined it for me, constantly saying "Hello Dave" in a really stupid voice. It became such a boring, over-used cliche to say "Hello Dave" whenever you could slip it in. And then they re-named Channel Gold to Channel Dave, and it drove me mad.

Also, my car feels like a girl. I don't know, I think it's pretty, and it seems like such a girl car. Maybe because it's owned by one? Haha. I like the name Lola, that's really cute - it's one of the frontrunners at the moment!

I'm drawn to the idea of a really common, funny overused name as well - but female! Anyone have any ideas on that? In fact, just keep the ideas coming!

Haha, my mum had a car called Love because the licence plate had the initials LUV. Nice!

What about Jessica? I wanted to call my car that, but it turned out he's a gay Korean man, so that didn't work, haha.

All the really common ones from the 80s- Tiffany, Heather, Brittany, Amanda, that kind of thing- make funny car names, I think.
