    It is a tradition that you give your new Tesla a name when setting up your personal preferences on the UI. What will you name your car? Have some fun

    We have clues from some members of M3OC what they will be naming their car:

    @Michael Russo = Serenity Now
    @TrevP = Notorious
    @Gary Moore = Zen Mistress
    @Badback = Ooooooohm
    @SoFlaModel3 = Pantherette
    @Kennethbokor = Kenny's Kanoe
    @Mad Hungarian = Paprika
    @John = Hi Tech

    and so on and so forth

    I will be getting a white car and therefore she will be called Una Paloma Blanca (the White Dove) or Blanca for short. This name is inspired by one of my most favorite songs by the same name. Here is one version of the song with the lyrics written out which are so important and appropriate for this revolutionary car.
    Una Paloma Blanca

    PLUGNgray

    A spinoff of my new license plate PLUGN and "plug and play" with my car being Midnight Silver ("gray").

    A second option is "MB The Tesla". My iPhone is "MB The iPhone". My initials are MB and it's a play on Spaceballs.

    This is subject to change about 50 more times :)

    ModFather, nice initiative and beautiful name choice... I like this song too by the way... ;)

    For accuracy, let me remind folks that my well known & often quoted choice is actually Midnight S≡R≡NITY rather than Serenity Now... you were close yet missing an important chromatographic component... :D

    As for the 'now'... for me that would be a dream!! :)

    Haven't really thought about it.

    When I got my Leaf, Nissan's website asked for a name.
    I ended up going with NINJA. ;)

    If I'll take black - which is a high possibility because the premium interior (i.e. must-have glass roof) is expensive enough - I'll call it

    Nevermore

    like in Poe's poem The Raven. You know? Like in "never gonna burn gas again" ;)

    No, I think I got your car name right. You remind me of a certain Kosmo Kramer in both speech pattern, thought process, mannerisms, and appearance. "Chromotographic Component"? Bada Bing, Kramer to a T

    I am notoriously uncreative and bad at coming up with names for things. If it weren't for my wife I think I would just be calling my dog Dog.
    Thanks for creating this thread, because it should help inspire those of us that need a little help coming up with a name over the next few months. If not, then like my iphone, it will just be called Josh's Tesla.

    @garsh For a Leaf, that black on black isn't half bad. Ninja fits it well. :)

    My M3 will take over the name of my current Volt . . . ELECTRO

    I don't need any more reminder of the horrible sports teams here or their fans, thanks!
    Sadly I have many months to think of something snarky.

    No, No, don't use "Snarky." ;) We (EVers) are already accused of enough intellectual snobbery as it is!
