    I've had a look through the forums and not found this thread yet, apologies if it does exist.

    What will you name your Model 3?

    I know that the Model S had a few Easter egg's like if you name'd it "007" then it would look like James Bonds Lotus Espirit Submarine, or "42" for naming the car “Life, the Universe, and Everything”.

    After reading "CmdrThor" reply in another thread on possibly calling his "Daniel Jackson" (I also love SG:1), I was wondering what people would name their Model 3.

    Kind of torn between StarBug and J.A.R.V.I.S at the moment.

    That's not what I was meaning, that post is how you will refer to it, i'm asking what you would name the car itself.

    Two different things.

    I'm not one for naming my cars, but if I were to do so for my Model 3, something like "Aslan", " Elsa" or "Clarence" comes to mind. :)

    I think that will be a discussion between me and my model 3 when she arrives. Just depends on the personality of the individual car, and what she prefers to be called, I suppose.

    When I read the "How will you refer to your Model 3?" thread I was hoping that they didn't mean this...

    I find it creepy when people name their cars, bikes, etc.... I get it on a sizeable boat or something like that but a car?? I don't get it.

    I was thinking this or "Nikolette" or just "Nicki" for short.

    But I'm not one to actually refer to my car by any sort of name. I would only name it Nicki in the event that a Tesla creates a personal assistant in the Model 3 that you can talk to, like Amazon's Alexa. I think it's certainly possible.

    Trey ( nickname for 3) is another idea.

    Milli and I decided to call it "Tresi", but we just end up calling it "the three".

    “Red October” because of the advanced silent propulsion system :)

    Although I’m going with blue instead of red, I will still refer to it as the Red October.

    It's interesting that half the posters from 22 months ago have just vanished.
