Posted:Hey guys, yesterday I got a car and I'm having a lot of trouble naming it! Naming a car is much harder then I thought it would be. It's my first car and it's a Volkswagan Golf:

Any suggestions? biggrin



I could say that there will be a prize for the best name...but I think that would be difficult!



P.S. I'm pretty sure it's a boy tongue ubblol

How about Grizwold? A name that sounds both good when you are praising it and yelling abuse at it.



"Ahhhh good little Grizwold, just make it up this hill to the Petrol station. You can do it my beautiful little car!"



"Grizwold you evil twisted Barsteward! You had to break down in the fast lane just infront of a 20 ton truck now didn't you! Oh no, not the hard shoulder for you, but the Damn fast lane Grizwold! What's that all about!!!?"



See biggrin

I don't think you can name a car till you know it's personality, it has to fit or it won't respond to you when you call it by it's wrong name.

Posted:Thats a nice car, i wanted one of them until i got my beetle. Naming a car is very difficult. I need a name for my bug but i dont know it well enough yet to decide on one definite name. Give it time and the right name will come to you when the car does something wrong and you shout at him smile

Well it is 'British Green' I think you said... wink

I doubt it'll be unlucky for you, though...

Percival is a nice name... Or Harold... ubbidea
