Your Corolla's name?

I was just thinking if, like all other enthusiasts gave your car a name. Me; I chose Brianna, I was with my friends one time and one of them has about 6 cars (most non-running) and she had names for them all, so I just said "I should name my car. I'm thinking Brianna." It cracked my friend up for some reason so it stuck. How about you?

My 'rolla was Chrissy. Named after one of my good friends who was extremely tempremental - hyperactive one minute and flat on her back the next...

But i too have names for all of my cars (two at the moment, but all my previous cars had names too...)

Call me strange - but thats just what i have always done...

The Corolla is our "Sports Car" and the Tundra is the "Tank". When we go to the store we ask each other if we are taking the sports car or the tank.

I named my '98 Black Corolla 'Black Betty', however since I discovered it burns so much oil, I renamed it 'Black Tuesday'.My '78 Dodge Ramcharger(wood hauler) is 'Rambo'. My '92 Toyota pickup is 'Larrybob'. My 95 Lumina is 'Zeldabob' My red Massey Fergsuson tractor is 'Rosie'. I am a sculptor and name every work. My wife won't let me name our '07 Camry... Too bad, it's called Camile.My chainsaw is 'Johnny Five'. My name is Frank and I have this problem........
