I've only had my sweet baby for a few days but I'm toying with "Jupiter II", "SS Minnow" or flat out "Johnny Quest".

(I'm a child of the sixties. Clearly!)

I have an R-Pod and my last name is Kidd so I named it the Pirate's Pod.

Last name is Schmidt. So of course we are german and named it "Das Schmidt Haus". And it means " The Schmidt House". This fun little homebuilt will be our second home...hence the name.

Well, I had an epiphany recently and thought of what I think is a great name for mine. I am doing the entire interior in tongue & groove 5/16" thick knotty cedar and I have been gathering sticks of wood that beavers have chewed the bark off and sharpened to a crude point from a dam near my house (mostly green poplar). I am going to incorporate several unique pieces of it as well.
So the name I came up with is:

"CEDAR-BEAVER"

Maybe I've just been a dirty-minded factory worker too long, but I think it's funny! ;)

I don't ever refer to it by "name" but named by build thread http://www.tnttt.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=69583 "Photophobic Retreat" because a big factor in deciding to build it was that I can't stay in most hotels anymore (especially any reasonable rate roadside stops) due to the florescent lighting and this was the best way I could come up with to still be able to explore more than a couple hours drive away from home at a time.

Our trailer is named "Abeona"

Abeona is the Roman goddess of journeys which seemed fitting. Normally I use greek gods/goddesses for my naming scheme (my car is Andromeda, my home automation system is Hestia, my computer server is Hermes, etc) but the similar greek god is Hermes who's name is already taken in my naming scheme, and our trailer is very much a "she" not a "he" anyway.

Actually, my wife named her...
