What should I name my car?

After a three month wait, my car is finally in "Finally Assembly"! I'm expecting to have it within the next two months. What do you all think I should name him?

Here are the names I've shortlisted -
Wellington
Stanley (Stan)
Stanton
Karl-Heinz
Otto
Felix
Whitney (guy's name, too)
Ralf
Loren

Cars are all female no? No one says "he's a beauty" or "he's in the shop".

when i raised this question to my wife after taking delivery on my M2C, she quickly retorted, 'don't be a douche.' that pretty much ended the conversation.

interestingly, however, my wife has unofficially dubbed my car 'the bitch'. as in, 'oh, so you're taking the bitch on a lunch time joyride?'

i'm with you on this, but 'herbie' and 'lightning mcqueen' do exist.

I'm with the others who suggested using female names. It might be too creepy for you when you say "Stanley, take me home" to navigate home and a female voice responds with "perfect, it'll be nice to be home"

Fwiw, I feel less douchy when I say "hey Oksana, roll down my window" than I would saying "hey BMW, roll down my window", so you really should name it

I'd feel less douchey pushing the button to roll down the window instead of talking to my car.

We are suckers for curves

Tell me cars are not female.

He might want to see it as just a friend, rather than a girlfriend:



. Avoiding too much "emotional attachment", so to say.
