Alright, the first named jeep I knew of was a CJ-7 named Pokey in Oceanside. The CJ was red like Gumby's horse-sidekick and we all know a trusty pal Pokey was.

What do you call your Jeep and why?

I'm trying to come up with a nickname for mine.

I have a 99 Sahara named the "Rust Bucket" that was unloved until I got her. I cringe at having to do work because I always have to deal with breaking rusty bolts.

The XJ I used to have was lifted 4.5" with 33" kevlars and a warn rear bumper tire carrier and the highlift mounted to the front bumper. It looked very masculine. I called her Janet, since a man typically gives his vehicle, boat, etc a woman's name. Janet Napolitano and Janet Reno were/are both very masculine women, so I named her Janet! Haha. Haven't come up with a name for the Rescue Green Mtn Edition yet... My 2yr old son calls it "Daddy's Car", so I guess that's good enough for me. Won't have it come October anyways, when I receive my order for one 2013 Rubicon JKU!!!

My 07 JKU is named "big sexy". It's named after a friend of mines enormous pit bull of the same name. It was a joke at first and then it just sort of stuck.

My Rescue Green 2dr was coined "Creeper" because it creeps and crawls. My boys have a desert tortoise also named Creeper who happens a to be a nice shade of rescue green so it kind is fits. So there you have it.

So, I told my wife I was trying to come up with a nickname for my Jeep, and she asked what was wrong with Jeepsie King? She has been calling it that for a while. I'm not a fan of the Gypsy Kings, so it kind of doesn't make sense to me, but I've called it that a few times just as term of endearment myself, so I guess I'm going with that

awesome thread!! :clap2:

moby dick was named by our good friend ken (happycurmudgeon) who called our white JK that after seeing it all built up. the name stuck ever since.

lil' Nemo kinda just fell into place following the acquatic theme after we got our sunburst orange JK.

RubiCAT took some effort to find as a lot of people wanted us to stick with the fishy name thing but, the color was just so demanding of something different. a lot of people wanted us to call it "dozer" but, we had a hard time going with the name of the color as a name for our jeep. but, CAT as in catapillar seemed to be a good reference to a dozer and it sounded right so, we went with it after several people suggested it.

last but not least, vengeance was given to JK we bought from our friend Ken just before he lost his fight to cancer. while this dreadful disease may have taken away his life, it couldn't take away the man he was, the life he lived and the people he touched. it is our hope that he can now take his revenge on cancer and keep on fighting for them now through the build of this JK.

Athough we got our JK early 2009 the 4 doors still were not that common. Mostly at work, but we would have people ask, is that your new yellow...ummmm "thing" out in the parking lot? :rolleyes2:

So combined with "it's a Jeep thing" and it being called a "thing" we came up with JK Thang

My daughters named my Commando Green JKU Sport "Eugene" for obvious reasons. I bought my 7 year old a collection of vintage cartoons years ago. And I explained the connection to Popeyes 4th diminsional dog Jeep and it was easy for them after that. My little one also picked out my Jolly Roger spare cover. (She has great taste) :)

We picked up our JK on Feb 8th. Just a few days after Philip Seymour Hoffman passed, plus we live 2 miles down a dirt road. That along with Twister being one of my favorite movies of all time it just all fell into place. It was my wife's suggestion.

This is Dusty. I will be adding Dusty to the hood in the spring.

Well we are on our 3rd Jeep, still have 2 of them. First was a 2010 that I named Danielle, my wife's middle name. The second is a 74 CJ-5 we got four our oldest as he just got his permit and I wanted to build a Jeep for him. We are still on the fence on names, either Buster or Bruiser. Seems everytime I work on it I bleed from somewhere. The 2010 was traded for a 2014 and the Wife has named it Skrump, something about skinning up knuckles and being grumpy afterwards.

Rescue Hornet by my friend & boss. One of the first times to take the Jeep to a friends ranch, we decided to run through a dry creek bed. He had a Kawasaki mule that would not start after we stopped to have lunch. While trying to start the mule, his son walked into a hornets nest in the creek and got stung about 10 times. My Jeep was the only thing that could make it into the creek and tow them out.117463117464

Beast - Even back before we started wheeling, my family and friends always said something like, "That thing's a Beast". Sometimes a term of endearment, sometimes the other side of the coin. (turning radius, money drain, ...)

The phrase stuck with us, my wife and I started using it, and eventually turned it into the proper name "Beast" as we wheeled and really began to appreciate the capability.

I sketched a "rum-induced" logo for it as well much later on. If I ever do some custom frame, bumper, and armor work, I'll have it cut out of it.

We bought a used, red 1997 TJ. It's a four-cylinder and it's great for short trips around town and driving off-road around the lake. We liked it so much that we got a new JKU, also in red. Since they're the same color, we resorted to calling one the "old Jeep" and the other the "new Jeep." Then someone called the TJ "Pops," since it's the old slow one. We have three teenage boys in the house who love Regular Show, and the name stuck. Sadly, the JKU is still nameless.

My wife named our 2012 JKUS "Rocko" because we like to camp in the Sierras of Rock Creek Road. The kids loved the name and I thought it fitting since Rocko likes rocks also. New to the Jeep world, but learning quickly it isn't just a "vehicle," but a passion, love and comradery for Jeeps.

Honey smacks cereal?

Lizard name I haven't seen used: Pascal

It's a mouthful but "cuisses de grenouilles" works too. :cheesy:

You are absolutely correct. I did not think of Pascal.. Good call. Bet my kids would love that one! Thanks.

You drive a Crush Orange JK and you describe it as Nacho colored?

It IS the color of the awful fake cheese you get on the nachos at the movies.... It fits.

Been calling mine "Number 2" lately. It's my second jeep, and it's the shit hahaha.

I was gonna go with "penny" since it's a copperhead and I love big bang theory but that name is taken a few times over.

A friend of my wife's christened mine 'JJ' for 'Jimmy's Jeep'. Simple. Elegant. Alliterative. 118589118590
Here she is getting a little work under the hood. That's my wife's car, 'Rosie."

My buddy nicknamed my Jk "Caterpillar". He saw it crawling this past weekend and said it looked like a caterpillar as it went over every obstacle I threw at it. 118408

After a pretty nasty wheeling trip my Jeep had some incredibly nice custom pin stripping and some rather interesting dents under neath as well as chips of paint missing on all kinds of surfaces...well this trip just happen to go on during Shark Week and while watching the next day they had a great white show up and she was full of all kinds of scars and they called her "Scar Girl" so need be I named mine Scar Girl...

Wow I do t believe I never replied to this thread!

Mine was named by my mom and I. It was red and looked mean to her when I first got it. Going back to my childhood I used to play sonic and knuckles with my brother. He was always sonic and I was knuckles. Fast forward 12 years and now he has a fast blue Subaru wrx named sonic and I have a slow rock crawling red jeep named knuckles. It's funny how we never really grew up

I named mine "Gambit" because I purchased it at the end of an over 2 year divorce process where I had truly been through the gambit to simply exercise right to be a loving and involved Father to my now 3 year old little girl. I'm also from New Orleans and Gambit, the marvel comic superhero, was always a favorite of mine since he was Cajun and had a unique personality. Last but not least, I figured "Gambit" symbolized all the obstacles in my life I have and will continue to overcome in my life, making me a better stronger man in the end.

Sgt. Grit, it's a Jeep so the name fit. It's been used, abused and has the scars to prove it. It's '14 with less than 5k before it was totaled, but still going strong.

So the naming of my JK was pretty interesting ever since I was a kid I loved history loved learning about WW2 about the paratroopers my favorite the weapons and events such as Battle of the Bulge, Africa, and above all D-Day and it just so happened that we purchased our JK on June 6th 2015 the day of the invasion.
So we named it D-Day honoring the Jeeps that landed on those beaches.

We originally named the jeep clementine because its orange. The wife and kids started calling it Jeepie though and it just sort of stuck. I prefer to think of it like "GP" though. 165992
