Talking Mini-naming...what do yall think?

Option 6: Tony

Im dieing while waiting for my mini to be ready to pick up, so while i wait, i need to come up with a name. I already have my racing name "Blue Lighting" but i need to give her a birth name. I want something brittish, but anything will do.

Let me explain Nabo: You all are familiar with the man in the iron mask right? Well he was rumored to be a black midget who slept with the queen name Nabo...lmfao

If yall have any suggestions let me know! I dont wanna copy anyone so let me know if I am. If you can think of a theme that i may spawn my name from, like Harry Potter, then that would be most helpfull too!

THanks!

If you put the NOS on it then shouldn't be called Burning Gundum. then theres Royal Gundum if you wish to stay british. Other notable names from Japanimation would be "Boneapart". The tank from Domion Tank Police. "Chowsue" or "Krillen" from DB and DBZ. both small but pack quite a wallap. "Silvia" from Bubblegum crisis. Or in case of mine or Dom's I would go with "Boomer" also from Bubblegum crisis. Then of course theres the dozens of names from the Transformers but i wont go into those. Ack drawing a blank at this time tring to remember the name of the ship in Outlaw star. Hope these help

Even though I'm part Irish, the name Cromwell has a good ring to it. Didn't the Brits have a Cromwell tank during WW2?

Not a problem Tonjohn. Been into anime for years. all the way back to Astro Boy, Starblazers, and most who started with Robotech. Forturnatly im blessed with a decent memory. As for the Name Tony. I like it alot so much so thats what My mother named me. Until we meet again remember your only as young as your money will let you be.

Signed
Tony Fleming
