I recently got my first car that I can call my own and not share with the family. It is a white 2009 Ford Focus. And my parents asked me what I wanted to name it. Any ideas?

Congratulations on the new car. I got a car when I turned 18 and drove it for 14 years. I never named it, though. I did name my Ford Escape Hybrid which we bought in 2006; by then, I think my family's habit of naming vehicles finally rubbed off on me. Mine's named "Kira" (I'm a Trek geek and loved DS:9). My brother's Ford Mustang he named "Betty". My Mom's Camaro she named the Scarlet Lady (yeah, it's red) and my Dad's Mustang GT he named "Sophia". As with ships, it seems feminine names are most popular/fitting for vehicles, at least in our family.
