What's in a name?


While I decide what to spend actual brain power on (because when I use it it'll be gone), I decided today that my car should have a name. I don't really know why, but it occurred to me so I'm running with it. If you do not know already, I drive a black '05 Ford Focus ZX3. However, due to the overwhelming respect I possess for my fellow bloggers (and those a little more anonymous) I'd like for you to name my car. I will therefore be taking suggestions until I see one that I like. I know I know . . . I'm incredibly generous for allowing all of you such a priviledge. Consider it a cyber-gift, and one that will win you a place in my automotive experiences for years to come.

FogFocusX. That's my vote.

And you'll name it that because you admire me more than any man on the planet.

Well Chris, you know what my car looks like. The name I chose was 'Nimbus'. I like to use names from the cartoons I watch (Nimbus is from Dragon Ball Z). My last car was 'Buttercup' (from Powerpuff Girls).

The first thing that comes to mind is 'Hiei' (he-ay or e-ay). Anime character (Yu Yu Hakusho). For a full desciption check out:

Hiei is the first character listed.
The description begins:
"Hiei is a fire apparition whose true origins are unknown. He is a master swordsman, and his strength and speed are incredible."

Have fun, see you!

how about Freddie? That was the first name that came to mind when I saw your car.

or YOSHI!!!! and yes it must be in all caps with 4 exclamation marks :)

currus meus...
or currus nebula...

mon ami

son of ford escort? Nah i dont know. I basically have the same car as you except for mine is silver and its known as the silver bullet.

This probably isn't the best place to post this being after your name quest, but it's your most recent blog and I know you have a predilection for poetry. So I thought you and your .NET enabled friend would enjoy something that even I can understand....

roses are #FF0000
violets are #0000FF
all my base
are belong to you

Have a wonderful day.... mon ami

gilbert
