Does your Mini have a name?

Hi all,

I'm getting my 2011 Mini Cooper cabrio on Tuesday which got me wondering whether people on here have given their Mini a name.

Do people just call it "the mini" or do you refer to it with a tag that's more personal?

Thanks!

Keira (after the actress) because she's a dark, beautiful lady with slender R52 lines

(In my mind, trucks have boys names and cars have girl names for some reason)

My wife sometimes refers to her Mini as the "Red Terror", but I secretly think that the name relates to the way she drives and what other road users think about her!

My kid named our Mini "Lil Miss Racy Casey" when I took us on our first zippy ride around town. She's just as cute as her name
