    There's a "post your pets" thread in Other Off Topic. There you will see many who have named their animals after cars and drivers.

    My cat's name was Squeaky (RIP). He meowed alot but now that you mention it...it could have been after the brakes on my (then) Fiorano Maranello.

    Recently, I named my folk's new Rottweiler "Kitty", although I really don't think it applies.

    I think you meant "their".


    Anyways... First cat: Kitt - got him the first night of Knight Rider back in the early 80's. Then came Paxton - named after a supercharger. The next cat... after Kitt died, was named Zac, short for Prozac, which Paxton was put on to deal with his depressed mood.

    I once had a lab named Harley after my bike, a lab named Stingray after my then car and a basset hound named Enzo. I now have a boxer named Porsche because my 3 year would mis-pronounce boxer as boxster, so I decided to name her Porsche the boxster.

    I'm getting a lab pup within a month and I'm thinking about "Scag", doesn't sound very feminine though.

    OK, I don't have any pic's but I have used Dino, Enzo and Luigi as cat names-and yes, the cats did resemble their namesakes in feline terms of course!!! If we weren't eccentric we wouldn't have Ferrari's, would we???

    I don't think my cat would apprechite being called:

    "Three Fourty Eight"

    here ThreeFortyEight, come here boy!

    Well, not car names, but I used to have fish named "sed", "awk" and "grep". The unix people here can appreciate that. :p
