Time time has come to name my Defender

After all the headaches, I have come to the conclusion that my D-90 is, in fact, a keeper. I'm talking, pass it on in my will to my next of kin type keeper.

I figured, I need to keep the name British and it's got an image to uphold, so I've decided on naming it after a British Battleship.

So.
Warsprite, Dreadnaught, or Repulse?

-Hans

Yeah, Dreadnaught is a good one. I had a 1995 RRClassic LWB I dubbed HMAV Bounty, in keeping with the British Navy...

Try something cool like Sid or Nancy, the filth and the Fury. Or is it gives you fits you can call it bollocks or anarchy from the U.K.

Conrad. I love that name. Conrad I King of Germany.



I named my Rover after Henry VIII. However there are days that I do believe I own the 'bastard' Henry...lol I wrote my dissertation over Catherine the Great so I am partial to royalty.

You should name it after youself. That way nobody knows in a conversation whether your talking about you, or your truck.

"Is he talking about himself in the third person?"....

LOL yeah but spell it different and say it the same way like Hanz. I call mine the Anti Christ, after the great Series Rover in "The Gods Must Be Crazy". If you haven't seen it the movie took place in Africa, and the Natives called it the "Anti Christ" for various reasons.

Well, if it ever gets smashed by a Mercedes or BMW... then perhaps Hood would be appropriate.
