Bus names

Well, I,m about 3/4 the way through with my build and I,m starting to think of a name for her (or him).
My bus is not going to have an elaborate paint job, mostly lite brown or tan and maybe I will get a local artist to paint some small murals on it.
Due to my lack of common sense ,over thinking and rethinking things this build has been a bit of a pain and adventure. I have been toying with Pandora.
Not totally matching but I like it.
I would like to hear from others what names you toyed with or like.
If it,s a name you have used or have seen on another bus, say so.

a name must fit like a newer freight liner w/ tilt down nose looks like an AARDARK ant eater, a flat nose cab over looks like a DOG HOUSE, the grill is the entrance, ect... so a name needs to be part of the buss and the pant job counts. a pink buss named BLUS-CLUDS ?? or a white buss named ROCKY ?? an army green buss named LADY ?? a white buss w/black bars on the windows named PRIZON ?? it's kinda' like naming a dog, or you well be telling people "why that name" for awhile.... so take your time and it well come to ya'. how about an old shorty with fat round fender, around 1953 to 59' ford or chevy.....shorty, fat boy bus, fat round fender, now that's just screaming out to be called "FATSO"... pant overalls on it and your set !!

that's a great name, just something about a home that you love and enjoy. with a name like that do you have much wood work inside ?? I moved to the panhandle of Fla. (from the west "by god" Tx. oil fields) and have come to believe Fla. stands for "Fu--in lower Alabama" . life here in the south is a lot different ......

"the Primrose Path"

the color is about right for my bus and its from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

wiki says -
"The primrose path refers to a life of ease and pleasure, or to a course of action that seems easy and appropriate but can actually end in calamity."

couldn't have said it better myself

If anyone watches Arrested Developement they would think A NU START would be a great name, especially on custom plates.

My GF ruefully calls my bus The Mistress, because (she says) I spend more time with her than with her.

a 2 year old revived thread. okay, I'll play. my bus is named Skoolie Doo. I would like to find a Scooby Doo hood ornament for the hood. I'd be happy. No, I am not doing a mystery machine paint job. I don't want to be flashy and a classic "keep Portland weird" resident.
