Y Names

    This is a silly thing to ask, but I bought my very first car (finally!) and it needs a name. My friends have a pretty strong tradition of naming their car names that alliterate with the model of car – for example, we have Ned and Neb the Neons, Max the Maxima, Otis the Odyssey, etc. My new car is a blue Toyota Yaris, so I need a good Y name. And naturally, there are like zero Y names. I have I few ideas, but nothing that stands out. So I’m turning to you all.

    So, suggest Y names! They don’t even have to be names you coul actually see on a person! A little nerdy or with interesting history is a bonus.

    My sister and I name our cars. She has a blue Chevy Cobalt named Corey. My new car is a blue Toyota Corolla named Mystique; my previous was a white Corolla named Onyx.

    I like Yuri, or Yori, the Yaris; Yasmin, or Yasmeen, the Yaris; and Yuki the Yaris.

    And also…
    Yaeger
    Yara
    Yoomee
    Yoselyn

    …I don’t really care for Yara as a stand alone, but I like Yara the Yaris. And the opposite for Yoselyn, I like it as a stand alone, but not so much Yoselyn the Yaris.

    Let us know whatever you choose. Even if it isn’t a Y name. It is your car after all.

    All of my cars have been Ds (Dante, Desi & Daisy)
    I thought of Yolanda first, but I also know women named Yoli & Yeuli (prn you-lee). Does it have to be a girl? haha because I think Yoshi would be cute, especially since it’s a Toyota :p

    No, doesn’t have to be female! I think there are just more Y girls names than boys ones. If it was green, I’d call it Yoshi for sure, but since most people think of the dinosaur from the Mario games, I don’t think it makes as much sense if it’s not green. Japanese names are a good idea, though. There are a lot of Y Japanese names and meaningful words. I’ll run a few names by my roommates and see what they think…

      There are different colored Yoshi dinosaurs (Yoshi’s Island), but yea, green is more the color I think of when I think Yoshi. I was gonna suggest Yoda, but he’s also green. …Yogi

      @ Kimiha~ what color is your toyota? any guidelines for it’s name?

    Yogi is smarter than your average car.

    Honestly I haven’t figured anything out yet. I just keep referring to it as “car.” I kinda wish it was green, because I love the idea of calling it Yoda, but it seems silly if it’s not green… I dunno, naming things is hard. I don’t know how you all do it with actual children.

    I think Yoda is fine regardless of the color.

    I do too! You could get a little vinyl Yoda or something to put on the back. :)

    Yoda and Yoshi are AWESOME – and I think are fine irrespective of the colour! :)

    (Also, Yosh/Yoshi means “ok” or “alright” in Japanese)

    You could also have Yuri (=lily) or Yuriko (=lily child), Yuuki (=courage), Yami (=darkness), yanagi (=willow), or Yoko (as in Yoko Ono)

    For a car, Yori might be the best though – it means reliable :)
