    I am getting delivery of my 90D this week. I have been asked what I am going to name the car. I think there is a place in the dashboard where you enter the car name. I was wondering what are typical names for a car. What did you name yours? etc.

    What is your ancestry? What local native tribes lived in the area where you now live? What are your interests? Passions?

    For instance, my family line traces directly back to Mary, Queen of Scots. So I chose Dealanach for the car name which is Scottish Gaelic for 'lightning' or 'electrical' and got the license plate DEALAN. If you see pictures online of someone receiving delivery of a white model S in a kilt, that's me!

    I have yet to name my car and I took delivery a week and a half ago. Pearl white with all chrome wrapped matte black. Thought about the typical "Storm Trooper", but that is over used. So if you have any ideas, I'm open.

    BTW, Congrats on the car!

    Thanks Erik

    I decided on the most lame name ever. But I made it easy for when I buy another one! Just change the number on the end. I decided on.......... Wait for it........... "TeslaInventory.com #1". So I'm not winning any creative name awards, I can live with that. I guess this is why I don't have kids either. They would be named #1, #2, and so on.

    Thanks Erik

    If you're old enough to remember the Knight Rider TV series, you could name the car KITT. I'm also struggling for a name. You're welcome to some of my rejects:

    Wingardium Leviosa (car has smart air suspension)
    Bilbo (car has hairy toes...err maybe not)
    Hammer
    The Flash
    Batmobile
    NCC 1701
    Last Gas 100 Miles (my Xbox gamer tag)
    White Lightning (the car is white)
    Spook
    Stealth Mode
    Optimus Prime
    White FBI Surveillance Van (my Wi-Fi network name)

    I named my Kayen, phonetic for cayenne (as in cayenne pepper) and a reference to Porsche (that's where I defected from...).

    I found a cool name on the Delivery spreadsheet: Full Metal Tesla (I think a reference to the Japanese Anime series).

    I remember when my first son was born. I refused to pick a name until I actually saw him. Maybe your car will inspire you when it's delivered.

    Yesterday the name hit me. I'm going to call the car "Adventure" which sums up my Tesla buying experience and what I hope ownership will be.
