    Trixie Blu. I've never had a car with a personality before, but Trixie does. She's cute and fun and very quirky, which makes her very unique! Even my friends call her by name now too.

    I have decided to call mine Lightning McQueen. Just Lightning for short.

    When I downloaded the photo from Toyota to use as desktop wall paper, my PC shortened the car a bit and right away, I saw Lightning's face from the "CARS" movie by PIXAR. Shure, he's not Red, but that was my other color choice before I decided on the green. B)

    Mine is called GIZMO....since I seem to collect gadgets and I think the Prius is just another gadget.

    I call her Skeeter ... short for mosquito. Cause you can't hear her coming until she has practically landed on you! :lol:

    Back when I had my Prius, she started of as Priuscilla, which morphed into Priscilla (for the same reason you listed) and then to Prissy, which is the name that finally stuck.

    I've been too busy giving names to the other cars on the freeway to think of one for my own car.

    Gina, which is "silver" in Japanese. Although she's the magnetic gray color. Previous cars were Vivian, unnamed (too new to have a personality), Prunella, and Gretchen.
