I always cringed a bit at naming cars, but coincidentally part of my number plate spelt 'OMD'. In the Uk, we had a band in the 80's with that name (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark). They released a song called 'Enola Gay' (the plane that dropped the atom bomb).

Before I knew it, we always referred to the car as The Enola Gay.

Mine is Bella. Not very profound or clever but because it's yellow and with a cockney accent it's yella bella. But I do like the Alice Cooper reasoning....

Our Cooper D is just called "the dooper". My other 2 minis are classics and one is called "the cooper" and the other is called "the mini" Im pretty boring when it comes to naming cars

It's funny how some cars get a name, the others don't. My wife had a Miata, which had a name. Then she had a Mercedes SLK and other cars, which did not have names. Now she has a Clubman. And the Clubman got immediately a name. Could it be that a car with a name has a friendly personality?
