Mine is called 'Christopher' or 'Chris' for short.

Last car (which was actually an suv) was called 'Alex' [hehe, kinda funny in hindsight] as in 'Alexander'

Yes, I give my cars guy names ... cos I don't wanna ride a girl

My car was dubbed "HAL" (from 2001 a Space Odessey) after my misque with the key fob in the trunk...it truly seems to have a mind of it's own at times and definately tells me what I can and can't do all the time! LOL!

This same thing happened to me some time ago, and my little brother had NO idea what I was talking about when I referred to the car as 'Hal.' I guess I'm dating myself a bit here...

Did you know HAL was named HAL because H, A, and L preceded I, B, and M in the alphabet? There's a lot of little Kubrick-isms in all his movies.
