We have begun calling ours just 'Max', like the bloke's name. And Mrs S's Fiat is called Pandora.
Not the most creative couple, are we?! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

Ours gets called dumpling on occasion. Doesn't seem to have any reason, just seemed to take over from Max which is the name it originally had!

I occasionally call it a damned bar steward, or something similar when it throws one of it's hissy fits!

To be honest, it's not a car with a proper soul like Italian cars seem to have, so generally gets called it in our house. All our previous Italians had fitting names. Most of our cars have a name from their plates. Had an Audi with a plate which read VX51CKY so was called Vicky for obvious reasons!
