What's yours called?

I love my relationship with my 2005 4.2SC RRS, it's special so I thought I'd ask if anyone else feels the same and gives their RRS a name?
Mine is called Rupert...... Rupert Rimmington-Smythe to be precise!
The reason is I travelled 300 miles to see it with a "trader" friend. He told me that as we would be buying it from another trader there was little chance of a discount from the advertised price.
So we came up with a story that we were buying it for a wealthy landowner's (Rupert) grand-daughter so she could tow her horses and if we got that right he had £3m to spend on other cars for the estate so it was a really important deal for us.
The trader got hooked on our story and we did indeed get a discount from the advertised price.
I then bought a non age related plate that ended "RRS" so the name became Rupert Rimmington-Smythe! R-R-S
Would love to hear other people's names for their RRS and the reasons why.
Please note this was s serious question but I know what you lot are like!!!!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we all point our RR's in the same direction and accelerate at the same time can we turn back time?

I have never named my cars. The RRSs have been called "truck" mostly, with the occasional "Sport", "Landy" or "Rangie" throw in (although I hate "Rangie", to be honest").

The current one is often referred to as "you useless piece of Censored " when it does the infamous "suicide pause". As it does this with remarkable frequency, the name is starting to stick. Rolling Eyes 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

Current RRS is called Elsie (wife's choice).

Her previous car was an '05 Fiesta called Gertrude. My last one was a Pug 607 called Eponine.

I am saddened to learn that some people do not name their cars.
