Default Name My Van! This will be interesting.

On a previous thread Wrinklepants (thanks!) stated "Give the van a name, give it a personality, and let the experiences begin." Well, now I have the van in for upfit.

I like that idea so I thought I'd seek a few recommendations just for fun. I do have a couple I'm keeping to myself as I plan on getting a personalized plate but I'm also open for something better. Lots of good ones are long since taken but let the creativity commence!

Rules, policy, procedure and protocols:

1. Max seven characters
2. No profanity
3. Numbers and letters only
4. Regular forum rules apply
5. Don't be hatin'

Have fun/pun with it - Let's see whatcha got! Thanks!

Well, if it's a state only requiring a rear license plate, you could have
ANTICI
on the front,
and
PATION
on the rear...

If it's a 4x4, how's about UPSIDWN

p.s. we really need more details for creative naming: length, color, cargo/passenger, etc?

Every Advanced RV (ARV) is given a name provided by the owner and is tracked that way while under construction. Mine was Alvar, for a famous 20th Century architect from Finland, Alvar Aalto. What immediately struck me was the curvature of the cabinets was reminiscent of his Scandinavian designs.

My new camper van under my custom design and their construction expertise by ARV is a short Sprinter I dubbed Mies another 20th Century architect from Chicago via Germany for his famous slogan "Less is more." I've attempted a design to get most everything into a short Sprinter 19'-5" long as my current Sprinter 24'-1" long. It's a challenge in having a kitchen area nearly the same as Alvar, a bigger bathroom and inside storage for two bicycles or equivalent storage space. Those are real names, not conjecture. BTW, I come to those names because I am an architect.
