Default Naming your cars?

So how does everyone come up with names for their cars?

I just call her my MINI but I feel like I need a name...
But there is a small part of me that says naming you car is lame.

So how did you come up with the name?
Why did you name your car?
Or do you think it is lame to name your car?

Name her Gurtrude.
"Come on Gurtrude, come on girl!!"
I boiled the tires off my car one day leaving work and the guys that I work with just started calling my car "The Beast".

My first one my Mom always called a happy meal toy so I called him Ronald.

Second MINI I just came up with something I thought was fitting... Sid, half cute sloth from Ice Age, half evil pyro from Toy Story

I'm way to obsessed not to name her. I first had named her Cab, for the play on words between Cab Calloway and that she's a cabrio. But once I got her home my daughter told me she looked vanilla....Thus Vanilla SCoop was born.

I have 2 names LOL 1st name is the official name Elaura which is the name of a friend who is in love with MINI's and we told each other that when each of us get our MINI's we will name them after one another. 2nd name Jeepers is in memorial to my dog who I had 18years and always loved to ride in the MINI and its also on the license plate.

At first I called my MINI Korky.....then after a year or so of beating him, I changed his name to Bruiser....cuz he's a bad ass.... I never call him by his name though....I call him old man, wannabe ONE, and other names related to being old.
