    Ok, little poll just for fun. I've had my truck for less than two weeks, and I've already had 4 people (all woman) ask me what I named it. So my question to everyone is this: Do you name your trucks (or cars)?

    I never understood the fascination with naming your truck or vehicle. Can someone explain the rationale behind this thinking?

    I named my truck Pyra because of the Pyrite Mica color. Reasoning why people name their vehicles vary. My reason for naming my truck is because I've always had cars that were handmedowns or a Point A-B vehicle, I never had the vehicle I've dreamed of, my truck is the 1st vehicle I have actually saved up for and dreamed and waited for, so that's my reasoning why I named my truck because I am have a great truck I am proud of, so why not name it.

    Nothing wrong with naming 'em. My tacoma doesn't have a name - we just call it 'Taco' (jeez, how original?) but our Jeep is named "Izzy (II)".
    For me - names always came from something that happened or something that just 'stuck' somehow. Never could sit down and think of a name and actually remember it.

    I don't have a name for my truck, but I do have a name for my garmin. She talks to me, so I figured she should have a name.

    Ugly Red Toy? Impulse Red Pearl is the best color for a Tacoma! Of course because mine is that color.;)

    There was a thread about this awhile ago.
    Mine is officially called Cherry but usually in conversation it is just the Tacoma.

    When and if the time comes that it gives me trouble, I will affectionately refer to it as either, "MuthaFucka", "PieceAShit", or "SonOfaBitch". Right now however ...(knock on wood)...It's just plain ole 'truck"!
