    I am still a new owner and had not named my car like others. I finally decided on a name "Powder". I came up with the name based off the movie Powder: Powder (film) - Wikipedia

    Since my car is white and all electric seemed like a fitting name. Check out the movie if you have never seen it.

    Anyway my son thought it was cheesy. What do you guys think?

    That film's director was convicted and served time for some truly heinous behaviour involving minors.

    Are you wedded to this name? If not, now's perhaps the best time for a separation.

    Not familiar with the movie, so I initially thought it had something to do with skiing or "blow". :) After reading the write-up, it sounds intriguing and could be an apt name for your white electric car.

    l like it & thought the movie was pretty good...of course I could almost compete with the powderyness of powder (not quite but I sure don't take sun too well ;> so might be biased...not sure the director matters for the name

    I think I will keep the name. Not sure about the director scenario. I can't tan well either @Zextraterrestrial.

    You name your girl anything you want. Mine is "The Miss" and she is! Sexy, cultured, perfect at every occasion and just plain damn lovely.

    I imagine only one out of 100,000 people has a clue what you're referring to. Powder is a fine name. If we take your reasoning, might as well throw out the entire Woody Allen canon along with Rosemary's Baby.
