    Ha. Have you come up with a name for your Model S yet? I've always named my cars... sad but true.

    Yes. Some history is in order. I don't usually name cars, but my wife asked me if I was going to name my Roadster, and "Tessie" immediately popped out of my mouth. Her groan guaranteed that name would stick.

    So naturally she asked a while back what I was going to call the Model S. "Essie". She groaned again and suggested "Nikki" (for Nikola), but I'm not buying it. Tessie and Essie are a pair.

    Must be. Lots of people name their cars those names.

    For me, it's TesS. Yes, the second S is capitalized. I'm often too lazy to get the casing correct consistently though.

    If I was getting an X, it would be a somewhat more manly name like TeX.

    Makes sense. I really doubt my names are original, although I have been using them for a long time (July 2010 for Tessie and November 2010 for Essie - when I made the reservation).

    Other naming threads:

    Pet names for the Roadster

    Pet Names for the Model S

    So we should probably reserve this one for Canucks!

    I have a Panoz and they name every car at the factory based on employee children's name. They then mount a plate with a name in the engine compartment.

    Sublimaze has already indicated that his (soon to arrive) S will be called Trudi. Not sure why...

    Sigh..


    I like Evelyn .. with emphasis on the EV. I didn't really read too much of the other 'pet names' thread, but Katniss would have been my second choice as mentioned in there.
