    I named mine "My Priuscious"... well at least on Fuelly anyways hah. I would not dare use it in public. Even my wife thinks I'm crazy for naming my car.

    My wife named it Hubble, kind of like the telescope but more like the little dog in "Good Boy" as it's very friendly and smart. Also it drives like a space shuttle and sounds like the "space pod" in "2001" when moving slowly.

    All our cars have names: Madame Red, Smokey, Mr. White, and Prissy. You know which one is the Prius.

    I refer to mine as "the Maytag" inspired by the car's driving dynamics.

    I decided on a name for my 2010 Prius when I created a mileage log on Cleanmpg.com

    My Prius' Cleanmpg.com moniker is HyperDrive 1 - which is a sly references to the Star Trek like (TNG) dashboard design and the Hypermiling techniques that I am learning.

    For consistency, I have also used the same name on Fuelly.com
