In honour of the colour name (Inferno) how about Virgil or Beatrice...they guided Dante through purgatory and beyond to heaven. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Divine_Comedy


Mary

Oooohhhh! Lovely! Count me in for the contest.

As for the car name, you really have to go with your first impression for it to really stick. I'm still waiting for inspiration for my Aveo.

CaitlinKnits

Looks like a Louise to me. My 1990 Honda Accord is Howard, so maybe I have a penchant toward "classic" names.

Debbie

I like different names so I suggest Gisela. But, Sally is great, my aunt Sally always has perfectly manicured nails and toes to match. 1000 is an awesome milestone

Debbie

I forgot to say that my aunt Sally's favorite color is red. Fingers, toes, and she has an awesome red slipper tub.

Aviva

I personally like "The Torch" But if you really want a girly name maybe pick your favorite classic heroine and use her name?

Dree

I'm the sort of person who likes odd names for cars. So, if it were me, it would end up named Lava or something. Now, you like real names, so a red anything would have to be Rooooooxxxanne. Yes, I know what the song's about. But see, the kids don't have to know. Haha. I'll shut up now.

Chrispy

Red Dwarf, but then that would only appeal to those of us that love dorky sci-fi from the BBC. It is your space shuttle to and from all events.

Shelly

Congrats on the 1000 member milestone! Well, since you're in Oklahoma and wanting a female name...I think of *Reba* ... as in Reba McEntire of country music fame with beautiful red hair!

I hope you get well soon!

Laura

How about Krakatoa... for the hot lava color? Congratulations on the new ride... it's great to be part of the 1000!

Shelly

I hope you get well soon!

mariannealice

If you are after a girls name, she looks like a Scarlet to me- feisty and strong! Maybe a Ruby....Congratulations on the 1000 members!

Kimberly

Sassy comes to mind as it's a litle bit rebellious so you don't quite have that soccer mom stigma.

Autum

Oh, I was going to suggest Scarlet, but Mariannealice beat me to it. My second choice would be Nellie.

susie

Bertha. :)

Bridget

She looks like a Lola to me!

Emiliy

Congratulations on 1000 members! That's fantastic! How about the name Randal, as an off take of grand?

Krista

Oh! Fun give-away! Thanks for the head's up :)
The van looks like a Cherise (french for "cherry") to me. Have fun and enjoy that pretty new van!

Audrey

YAY!! 1000!!!!

Today 1000, tomorrow the world!!

I'd go with Sassy Sally.

Cyndi

That is really red!

Cyndi

That is really red!

Cyndi

That is really red!

greenapples

Can I be the odd one out and vote for no name? Every-single-time my mom named one of her cars (Back when I was a kid), they were very "tempermental" vehicles. If a name is required, I vote for either "Van" or "Crazy Bus" for those outings/days where the kids are bouncing off the walls & you have to take them out!

Mary

I'd say Casey.

Sunny

I would go with Stella. Snaz it up! Congrats!

hunnybunny

What about Candie, and when it was being bad you could pull out the whole full name deal, Candace!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and leaving the comment. It's so hard to sort through our stuff and determine what's extra sometimes. Your words were that perfect push when I needed them.

Dove

I would name the car Scarlett! Because it is :)

Lynn

How about Charlotte?

judy

I like O'hara. The Scarlet part could be understod.

frances

Okay. Here we go. In no particular order and taking in the cars over-all personality:

Blaze
Big Red
Dame Dodgette
Bess the Beast!

Sarah

1000! Holy smokes! Hmmm...car name...my cars have always been male (Lance, Pimpmobile, Timmy and now Bruce). Took awhile for Bruce to come to me. Girl...red...I have to go with my mom's name 'cause her favourite colour is red...so Patti or Patricia if you're feeling regal.

Alli

Congratulations, and thank you for such a wonderful giveaway! I think an old fashioned name is in order for the van: I'd go for "Olive," "Rose," "Sophia," "Lucille" or something of that ilk.

Don't worry about the soccer mom stigma - I have a mini van and I don't even have kids (it's great for hauling around my giant greyhound). Vans are so useful!

Missy

Thanks for the contest, I was going to say Scarlett or Ruby but those have been given already. How about Dorothy? As in Wizard of Oz Dorothy? Enjoy her!

Tammy

I vote for Vixen. :D

Toni

maybe ruby or ginger? both fitting for a red car i think :)

Kajsa

A first glance I thought you were giving away a car, but I honestly I think a crafty treasure box would make me much more excited :) I modestly suggest that you call the car Kajsa after me, haha. It is a Swedish name pronounced Kysa.

filambulle

Delurking to suggest "Sanguine".

It is the name of a reddish drawing chalk:

And I love the "Orange Sanguine"

(ps.: sang is the french word for blod. I hope you are not afraid...)

xo from Switzerland

Carol

Hi Kristen!
Nice new van, I'd call her vanna :)

Christine Jock

I think either Ruby or Dorothy would be great names for your new car. It IS gorgeous!

pam!

Frances (of Rome) the Patron Saint of Safe Driving and Drivers ... mother of 3.
"Frances certainly never drove, but legend says that when she went abroad at night, her guardian angel went before her lighting the road with a headlight-like lantern, keeping her safe in her travels."

Anneh

I would vote for Liberty (because my new car spelled "freedom" to me...)
Congrats on your new purchase!

kerri

I'd go with Betty, she looks like a Betty.

Congrats on hitting 1000!

Carolyn

Congratulations on your 1000! What a beauty of a car ... Isabella maybe ... or Ginger like Toni suggested.
Either way ... hot stuff! :)

Hege

I wish I had a car like that!
And I would call her Pippi :)
You know Pippi Longstocking? She has red hair ;)

Ühltje

I'd go for Edna. and congratulations on passing the 1000.

Bliss

I like Rosie!

Loretta

I love the color. We have a white dodge caravan which my 4 yr old ds lovingly named "Herbal Rosie". You may borrow the name if you wish lol ( or shorten it to Rosie!)
