Name That Car

As many of you may already know, I find it quite amusing to name our vehicles. I don't have a good reason why, but hey, when you spend that much money on them, you might as well name them right?

Anyway, I sold my old van Helga (the Hooptie) to my friend Sarah about a year ago. One of the stipulations was that she must keep her name and she did (thanks Sarah). We replaced Helga with Betsy (the Beast), my Yukon XL, last May. We sold Jonathan's car recently and upgraded him to Ray and Katie's car and I just realized....he doesn't have a name. Now, I truly feel a 1998 gold Honda Accord EX should be female, but since Jonathan is driving him, I'll let it be a male's name...but I am at a loss. So from now until Friday, I want to hear your suggestions for names for Jonathan's Accord. Whichever name he likes best will be deemed the winner and I will send you some kind of prize in the mail. I don't know what...heck, I am even open to suggestions of what the prize should be. Please keep me in mind that we are on the adoption budget when suggesting prizes. This should be fun...

I was thinking Polly Paid For but since you want it to be a girl I'll have to keep thinking......

Goldie is the obvious one, but you don't want chick names. Tony, in memory of Tony Soprano? Wait, it's a gold Honda Accord that you think SHOULD have a chick name but I guy is driving it... How about something like Elton then? Oh yeah, that's good. Elton. That's my vote. Elton.

My comment should read "a guy is driving it" not "I guy is driving it." Obviously.

I like Hercules (the Hunk)..You can either shout Hercules! Hercules! or sing in Elvis fashion Hercules the "Hunka Hunka Burning Love!" A good car with a cool jingle can never go wrong.

Her Side!!!Or Roxanne (the Rocket) for a female twist...Roxanne is a cool girl name for a guy and you can always sing in your best sting voice..."ROXANNE you don't have to put on the Red Light.

That has a certain class about it! And it's a great tribute to the previous owner.

So this thing is pretty much over, right? I mean, come on... clearly there's a winner here and clearly it's Elton. Clearly.

The contest is not officially over until Friday (read the rules Christopher!!!)

Keep the good names coming...I am loving this. Oh, and no one has suggested the prize for the winner?!?!?!

The PRIZE...drum roll please.

The clear cut satisfaction of beating all the other screwball brained people who entered this contest to begin with! Victory, oh, sweet Victory. You really should have a blog-dinner. I don't know half the people who comment on your blog!!

Okay...I've got a great idea for a prize. You should get that car paint and write the name on the car and take a family photo ...post it on your blog and send it to the winner. Priceless!! You could even make it your family Christmas card!!! Ha! Ha! Ha!:) I agree with Laura..we are screwballs!!!

Elton? Are you there Elton? Gold? Check. Shiny? Check. Should be driven by a woman? Check. Instead, driven by a dude? Check. High mileage? You think it should have quit a long time ago and yet it still keeps pumping along? Check and check. Elton. Hello Elton.

I'm tired of waiting...I bow out to Chris. Elton is a good name and with all the things Chris said about it I would have to agree....until I hear for sure I will be calling him ELTON.
