It's all in a name...

For some time I've been pondering a name for my cargo-bike. I was thinking it had to be a girl's name as aren't all vehicles named after girls?  Recently, my friend, Mikey, bought his first car and was looking for a name, in the search to procrastinate on my spring cleaning be the helpful friend that I am, I stumbled upon a first name that just fit. (I suggested Heather for Mikey's car in case you were wondering.)

Later that day, another friend, Rochelle, did one of those silly-fun Facebook quizzes "what's your hippie name?".  I loved mine.

Then came my *lightbulb* moment.  That's his name.  Sorted.

So maybe I've over-thunk that, but so be it.  And on that note, I'd officially like to introduce you to...

Have you named your vehicle of preference? 

Cheers, KangaRue :)


  1. Hmmmm Clarence Breeze - bit of a mouthful. I might nickname it/her CB or something.

    My very first car was bright yellow with black interior. I named him Bevan.

    Because my current car is so compact I tend to call it The Little Beast. However my rude brother called it the Nannamobile - which I hate - but can't get out of my head.

  2. Nanna B perhaps?

    Just "Clarence" is fine (but I don't think he's a Clarrie. I just know these things); the Breeze just fit with the lifestyle/mindset/self-care aspect, as well at the literal.

    It has the added benefit of being able to answer Pickle's incessant questioning at the moment of "what's his FULL name" about everyone/thing/character/inanimate object.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
