Follow over the jump for the names I want my readers' advice on.
I have three names in mind for the car. First, since the car I traded in was named Ruby, a character from "Once Upon a Time," I thought I might name this car after another character from the show. The first one that came to mind was Regina Mills, the Evil Queen and Mayor of Storybrook.
Regina was also the first name that occurred to a co-worker who also is a fan of the show, so that works in her favor.
I also thought of Killian Jones AKA Captain Hook.
Yes, I'm fond of morally ambiguous characters who wear flamboyant dark outfits.
My wife's response to this idea was that if I wanted a Disney pirate's name for my car, I should call the car Pearl, after Jack Sparrow's ship, The Black Pearl.
The car is even the color of black pearls.
Consequently, any recommendations for pirate-themed names will default to Pearl unless any one of them gets more votes than all other suggestions. Also, in case of a tie, Pearl wins. My wife's advice outweighs all the rest.
The last name is a call back to an ealier car, Yuki. As I mentioned when I explained her name, "Yuki wasn't my favorite character from the anime. That was Lebia Maverick."
In a comment to Farewell, Yuki, "Her name wouldn't have fit my Kia. I'd have to save that for a much more high-tech vehicle." The Prius is exactly that kind of high-tech vehicle.
By the way, there is some advice I won't take. For example, when I first asked what name I should give to my car, I got a smart aleck who said "Pious." I recognized that as the name of the car of the smug Prius owner from "South Park."
First, no. Second, the name form is Pius, not Pious--and if I wanted to name my car after a pope, it would be Francis. That's not happening either.
So, which name should I choose? Leave your pick of the above in the comments.
