I go back and forth as to whether to give my 300 a name. And if I were to name it... OJ just doesn't work; Julius (as in orange) is an on again off again contender; latest entry is Percy/Persi (persimmon)

Which brings me back to: To name or not to name?

Would welcome hearing from others.

I'm sure there's already a recent thread on this subject.

Julius is a great name! My white and orange tabby cat is named Orange Julius, or Julius for short. Yup, after the drink place at the mall.

Arancia (Italian for orange).

Valencia (a type of orange)-Val for short.

Garfield (big orange cat)

Lots of possibilities.

I have never named a vehicle, 2 or 4 wheeled. But when I sat on my first Vespa, a white '09 GTS250, I named it Bulger (Whitey doesn't sound right). Then, when I bought my new GTS HPE, the color looked like a mustard bottle, hence Heinz.

I have an arancio impulsivo GTS. My wife picked the color and she named it Orange Julius already.

Not too original...Gio. But, it does sort of have a meaning. I had a friend John who's given name was Giovanni (Italian for John). His college buddies called him Gio. My name is Jon, so my scooter is Gio. Just also happens to be the last 3 letters of Piaggio.

I will probably refer to it as my Vespa or GTS. I have always called my motorcycles their manufactures model name i.e. Virago.

I never named any tool... until I got two Vespas. So instead of "white Vespa" and "black Vespa", which gets very repetitive when writing anything that involves both of them, its Salt and Pepper.
