Oct 2 was National Name Your Car Day
What do you think you might call your Aptera?
I have reserved a full solar Sol so.. maybe ‘O Sole Mio🎶 ( My Sunshine )

Mr. Nowak, this serious business. We should have had more lead time for such a prestigious decision. But….I guess, under the pressure of a tight deadline and since I ordered a Noir, mine will be called K.I.T.T 2.0

Polly – for polliwog – The car kind of looks like one and it is the first step in the transformation of the frog. Much like the Aptera is a first step.

If Michael claims Polly – I’ll claim Wog! Whereas Polly could be misconstrued as a parrot, Wog will have no identify other than the Aptera!

I’m kind of torn on this one. I have always used women’s names like “Gone in 60 seconds”. However, I may end up going with Helios on this one. If I go with the Gi60S option, I will probably end up using Christine especially if they incorporate the summon feature.

The name for my Aptera is a no-brainer: Slick … as in “Hey, Slick, where you wanna go.”

I already have a name for my Aptera:
It’s a play on words from ancient Sanskrit: Surya means Sun and Namaskara means Respectful Salutation.
And, just as in many yoga traditions:
Each day, Aptera will greet the sunny day and gain energy from it, which, simultaneously will help bring harmony not only to itself and its owner, but also to the planet. …much in the same spirit as what the original expression intended.
Plus, when the Aptera has both it’s doors open, it looks like it is in the Warrior One position of the Surya Namaskar flow routine.

I like the name with the Namas-car part, lol @Fanfare 100 🙂 I practice Kundalini Yoga & meditation & Surya came to mind as a possible name too.
MemberOctober 9, 2021 at 11:15 pm
Oh that’s easy, mine will christened as Sunny!

This will be slightly different for the thread, however the members will probably get a kick out of this.
I just recently got a new dog. Her new name will be Luna in time. Right now her name is Lulu. Once she calms down and gets use to her new life, she will be known as Luna.
I’m not a fan of dogs having human names. I also wanted to give her a name that is close to the original. Luna just seemed like a good fit. It helps when is white.
