Finally I join the land rover owner stupid habit, naming their vehicle as it was a person… There is actually a name for this habit, its called
Pathetic fallacy : ascribes human, emotional qualities (feelings, thought, sensation) to inanimate objects, as if possessed of human awareness. In describing and ascribing sentience to things, in the term pathetic fallacy, the word pathetic communicates feelings of two types, pathos (emotion) and empathy (capability of emotion).
Although sound pathetic, looks pathetic, and probably indeed pathetic, I will do it anyway :). After few months without name, I finally found a name for it… but before that I will tell you my other options. One thing that we need to remember when naming a landy (or any car) appropriately: the car gender is female… Not sure why but this is European way of thinking, (may be because we “ride” her), since landy is England origin, I just follow the suit…
Option 1. Actually I am thinking of Indonesian Names : like Rina, Siska, Dewi, Santi but somehow it is all the name that the missus would not approve, and if I ever mumbling any of those names during my sleep, I will be in deep deep trouble.. :)
Option 2. Still Indonesian name but animal: Bleduk (anak gajah), kuya, gudel (anak kerbau), genjik (anak celeng) etc… but it all seems bit off
Finally finally, I found a name which probably suitable for it… Dolly… after Dolly Parton, she was born in 1946 and her prime time was in 70s… She was a country singer and quite good at that… but sometime she just (playing in Best Little Whorehouse in Texas as a) bitch… She never be a porn star though and most (if not all) of the nude picture of her are fake…
So.. country music, busty, sexy (by 1970 standard), sometime bitchy… just the way I like it… thats my landy and riding her will never be the same anymore… yiihaa… :D
