Writer's Block: Taking a trip with Mrs. Tibble

What name would you give to your car or bicycle, and why?

My 2001 Saturn station wagon is named "Serenity", because she's gray and a little battered, and needs lots of attention, but she's also amazingly sturdy and soldiered on for months needing repairs that would have crippled a less resilient vehicle.

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...


(The whole "superficially pleasant and spiritual name that actually refers to a horrific, soul-scarring battle that destroyed the captain's faith and left him a bitter, surly, sarcastic bastard" aspect has nothing to do with anything. Nothing, I say.)
