What did you name YOUR smart car? C'mon...I know you did!

We named ours "itibiti" and, because I had over a year to think about it, I came up with a list of over 30 possibilities (obsessive much??).

Every time I drive it, I constantly see drivers in my rear-view mirror mouthing the word "i-t-i-b-i-t-i"...then they smile! Mission accomplished!

Check out the web site I built for it at www.itibitismart.com and, oh yeah...did you notice "itibiti" is also a palindrome?

Top that!

Just put on the vanity plate this week. I selected CHOCULA for the metallic chocolate brown paint.

i love the most recent names posted. gordon, what year is your baby? and sandra, i just saw a smart in a movie i was watching, your name reminded me of it. it might have been 'death at a funeral,' but maybe not. it could also have been some awful horror thing that i didn't finish watching :)

bill, i have considered bnznano or nanobnz but am leaning more toward smrtl80 these days (that's an 'L'). a co-worker suggested smrtldy but i'd rather make people work a little... :) renewal is due in october, so if anyone wants to suggest anything, now is the time.
Mine is "LIL GUY"
Call our yellow/black smart Picachu from the Japanese cartoon. Just look at that front end.
barb,

It's a 2010 limited edition highstyle --only 130 in Canada. Here's an article:

thanks for sharing the link, i've sent it to friends and family who insist on believing the car isn't safe on the road. i especially liked the comment about big trucks not being a problem.

i love chocula's color. i'm really happy with my all-fabric seats. did it happen to come with cruise?

No cruise control; although that can be added aftermarket. I just learned that smart Canada will offer cruise control on 2011 models. The highstyle is essentially a tricked out passion with most of the toys -- mine came with pretty much everything except for an alarm and the tire pressure sensors. One of the reasons I bought it was that I found that the 2010 Passion didn't come with a number of things I wanted. My highstyle had been Benz employee-driven, so I got a nice discount as well.

Here's the flier for the highstyle.

Well, I'm waiting for my 2011 Smart to arrive...but I think I'm calling it Spock. It's only logical to drive a Smart. :)
We have a Damon Outlaw RV to carry our Smart Car. The Outlaw is Bonanza and we named our Smart Car Jelly Bean
I have just had my little Smart for one week and I'm loving it!!
 My husband came up with her name 'Carriad Bach' welsh for 'little darling!'
I think it suits her right down to the ground!! 
Loving some of you're names, it's good to be a Smarette!!!  Hee hee xx

All my vehicles are named <Something>Bit, as I'm a software professional:

Bounder RV: BigBit
Jeep: 4WBit
F350 Diesel: TuffBit 
5th Wheel: TowBit
Prindle Catamaran: FloatBit

Smart: HalfBit

As to the question, "Why would anyone name a car?"

A: Because we are creatures of association and imagination.  And we like to project personalities into the things with which we interact.
