Hi All.

I remember a while back that there was a minor fracas on this forum over Land Rover Names.

While I'm sure most of us agree it is a little silly, we can also agree it's also in good spirits.

Therefore, can I point you all towards

www.landrovernames.com

which is an international register of names people have given to their trusty steeds, but seems to be dutch led! I have recently registerd both Saffron and Kinky Mo, my two, but they seem to take a while to get added!

Lets try and get the number of vehicles on their up, and particularly the UK based vehicles.

Gord

Registered mine on that site a while ago now.
I found it interesting to see what people came up with for names for their Landys. Smile

Hi all, im new to this forum, and the Naming Landies thread made me smile...ive always named my cars. Both my S3 staionwagons are named-The Goddess, who is my daily drive, but unfortunately is holed up at an accident repair centre as a nice delivery driver shunted me off the road, and Firefly, who is need of some tlc. Havent decided what to do with her yet.

Both,are lady landies.....like their owner Smile

Hi, and welcome firefly - why not put an intro post on the relevant section telling us a bit about yourself?

My SIII 2.25D has been christened Smokey for obvious reasons, although I have to say she isn't that bad really.

My last 90, a 2.5TD, was called Monty because it looked quite tough and other traffic was always following it Smile

The 'sex' of the landy is interesting as well - I've noticed that a lot of Series 2 landies have 'old' womens names - Elsie, Ellie, Madge, Trudy etc, whereas the Defender brigade tend to opt for male names.

I'm wondering if thats because Defenders tend to get used harder than S2s? Series IIIs seems to be a mix, perhaps reflecting their semi-classic status?

Perhaps its because, defender drivers are all gay,s111 will go both ways if times are hard and s11 are all men lol.
Being part off the s111's i dont swing but i know a man that does.@D

I have never named a car in my life, but in the Landrover Tradition I gave in and christened my 109 Dolores. She just looks like a Dolores to me.....bless her Embarassed
