Righto! I had a Plymouth Voyager, so I named it after a voyager to Plymouth. (I picked Brewster instead of someone more people have heard of because he's an ancestor of mine. And because something like "Miles Standish" would have made it way too obvious)

Ubi Dubius's car is "Goldie" because it's a Chevy Malibu, and we can't figure out what a "Malibu" is actually supposed to be. It translates to "Bad Ibu" but we don't know what an Ibu is, either. My current car is a red Ford Taurus, and still needs a good name.

You're halfway there, Malibu is Bad Rum :wink:

How do we get a car name from that? Bad Rum is too easy, and not really a good name.

How about some red rum? Danny or Jack are perfectly good names for a car. Or maybe just Torrence, to be slightly more obvious.

Another Pokemon: Okelse the Treecko. (Yes, most of my non-meaningless, obscure names are for Pokemon. There's a lot of Pokemon to name, you see, so there's a lot of names to be given.) I'll give you a hint: It comes from two pieces of music I like.

EDIT: Remembered why I stopped thinking about that other Muk name in the first place. Removed. :P

Oh yes...that's a tricky one. Treecko - two pieces of music? Echo and the Bunnymen? He's a Bunny.

Treecko is the species of Pokemon. My Treecko is named Okelse. Okelse is the name to be figured out. :idiot:

Perhaps you'd better post in French then I might make sense of it... :facewall:

Right...got it Okelse...nothing to do with Echo and the Bunnymen (I didn't like them much anyway).

Is it a condensing of "Ok else"? Some sort of programming reference?

The other thing I was thinking was the band OK Go, but that's not a song. Though maybe the OK is a red herring. O-Kelse?

Black Bart is right, the OK does refer to OK Computer. PKMKII is also right, the two parts are OK and Else, although it's a music reference and not a programming reference.

Here's a hint: I chose the two parts for a specific reason related to the Treecko species.

EDIT: Also, the other part is probably more obscure than Radiohead.
