And the winner is...

...CarrieAnne!

From this point onward, my truck shall be known as CarrieAnne. It's a great name for many reasons. Reason one: it meets my naming convention of double-name, ending with "Ann" or "Anne." Reason Two: What is a truck used for? Carrying stuff! Carry --> Carrie and we have another play on words, much like Honda --> Rhonda. Reason Three: Carrie-Anne Moss.

There were lots of good suggestions in the "Name drmellow's truck" poll. Even some of the names that didn't meet the double-name, ending with "Ann" or "Anne" convention were good; I considered breaking the convention. But, in the end, I think CarrieAnne is the perfect name.

Special thanks go out to Mrs. Mellow for originally suggesting CarrieAnne.

How bizarre - it is my name, too. :) Don't know if you are into "oldies" but the Hollies have a song called "Carrie Anne" as well.

I love me some oldies, but I'm not familiar with that Hollies song. Hrm. It's been a long time since someone's stumped me musically like this -- you get 2 points. Points can be redeemed for valuable prizes at the end of the game, so be sure to keep up with your points!

Man. I was really hoping for "Hoss."

It was up there in the running for a little bit, but I was afraid that one day if I got a "real" truck (Silverado, Ram, etc.), that it would be jealous that my little truck got such a cool truck name.

It was only a little rigged. If the suggestion hadn't already been good for the reasons I mentioned, or if someone else had suggested CarrieAnne, Mrs. Mellow wouldn't necessarily have won....

Yes, I too thought of the Hollies song "Carrie Anne". Sometimes, it pays to be OLD.
