Jeep nicknames?

Do you have a nickname for your Jeep and did any of your friends nickname you for your Jeep?
My Jeep's nickname is "Big Black" and a few of my friends who don't drive Jeeps call me TJ since my Jeep is a 99 TJ even though my real name is Cole.

My girlfriend doesn't like climbing up in my Jeep and thinks it looks hillbilly (as she would say), so she calls it Jeb. I didn't like it to begin with but now I think it's a name and it adds some character to what some might call just a machine or automobile. Term of endearment, I suppose.

I nicked mine "Bounder". Anyone that's ridden with me while I wheel knows why.

being on the gulf coast about 25 minutes from galveston...I came up with HURRICANE. I have it in Rubicon font in flat black on my hood. Next is going to be custom...all black plates...CTGRY 5. Category 5. For you inland guys that is a designation of the severity of a hurricane..5 being the most powerful.

I was trying to come up with a name for mine while still learning "his" personality. I had ideas like Hidalgo (loved the horse in that movie) and Hobbes (Calvin & Hobbes, the tiger always got Calvin into mischief) when a friend of mine said "Kate, you should name your Jeep "Ajax" ! I told him I thought it was a stupid name and ask where the hell he came up with THAT! He replied; "Ajax was a great warrior and besides... Ajax is stronger than dirt!!" (from an old Ajax cleanser commercial)

Damned if it didn't stick!

Eveny now and then he'll pop off with "Say it Kate... you know you want to!" it makes me laugh every time.

Jacob. As in Jacob Black from the Twilight movies. My 14 yr old daughter decided that should be his name and now it is.

Still have not figured out a name for mine. I thought about naming it Gibbs after the character in NCIS because I shifted a little rough one time and my sister hit her head on the head rest while doing something stupid... but the name has not stuck.

I'm still working on one. I love the story about Taffy 3 and the Samuel B Roberts at Leyte Gulf during WWII.

Taffy?
Sammy?

Something completely different?

I named mine "J-Wow" from the bimbo on jersey shore. I HATE the show with a passion but my girlfriend loves it so I did it to antagonize her. It worked. The name kinda stuck because of the J in Jeep lol.

My YJ is named "Junior". My daughter named it after our old CJ5 whose name was "Jasper". I was taking her to school one morning and said we needed to come up with a name for the YJ. She said we should call him "Junior", as in "Jasper Junior". I thought that was pretty cool and it stuck. FYI: Jasper is my avatar pic. I sure do miss that Jeep!

I don't let my wife let me hear me call her that.

I've named every vehicle I've ever owned. The last three were green, and all had Celtic names (drove everyone nuts, since they couldn't pronounce them!). Since my new Jeep is Solar Yellow, I'm going with "Girasole" (pronounced jeer-a-so-lay) which is Italian for sunflower. I live in the Sunshine State, and love to garden and having fresh flowers around me, and Italy is my favorite place on earth (so far) so it seems appropriate. I plan on getting a vanity plate and tire cover with a big ole' sunflower on it...anybody got any suggestions of the best place to get a reasonably priced custom tire cover?

We call my Jeep "Bluebicon". Guess why.


We call my wife's Jeep "The Hotrod". Also pretty obvious.


We called my last Jeep the "Vibrating Piece of Shit". Thats a long story.

My kids call mine "Bob" but my buddies call it "the Creamsicle" because it's orange. I call it "freakin' awesome" because it's a Wrangler.
