    One look into this dame's crystaline eyes and you hear her name whispered--breathy and hushed... "Tear Drop."

    Carmen for the color, or Electra in honor of the Lucas electrics.

    Not sure about the full name.

    But with respect to the car's diminutive dimensions and from my experiences with MGs it really should start with 'Little'.

    i.e. "You awkward 'Little' - <insert loving term or expletive of the moment here>".

    Occasionally the name may also translate to "you Little Beauty", this term is reserved of course for those few brief miles that the car is running well. Always a warning of impending catastrophic mechanical failure.

    Carl... Yeah, he's a Carl. Take a look at those headlights.... that grill. Definitely a guy!

    And look at him. He's simply and straightforward. There are no extra do-dads or wings, sweeping/flowing lines or silly frills. His name should reflect that.. short and to the point. "Bartholomew" or even "Douglas" are completely out of character. "Bob" may be shorter but it is too "cartoony". No, Carl is strictly business.

    MG could be a sort of monogram for "Magoo". Mr. Magoo.

    I agree with Carmen Electra, but for a different reason....As soon as the top comes off all you can see is a couple of T-ts. Sorry Guys, love the show which I podcast every week.
