What's your morris minors name?

Postby pMauz » Wed Jul 09, 2014 11:28 am

Hey I haven't even found my little morris minor yet but I'm so excited about getting one I have started to think what he or she might be called and would love to know what people have already come up with :)

Hi Vicky - welcome to the forum! There was a thread a few years ago about the names people have given their Minors. Here's a link: http://www.mmoc.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f= ... 3&p=184317

Mazie because a Brit friend of mine said that it was a proper British name for a girl.

Hi,
Mine is 'Abby'.
Gleaned from the first couple of letters in her registration.
Best wishes,
Mike.

The name changes depending on what the car is up to at the time.

I've had a few, and had to name them all :roll:
1 - Yasmin (reg YAS 610)
2 - Sophie (reg SFO 892)
3 - Phoenix (christened by previous owner)
4 - Maggie (reg MAG 780G)
5 - Charlie (after the particularly generous previous owner).

Thought I would just jump in here even though my "new" car is a 1956 Oxford.

After much thought we decided to call her Myrtle because it is a bit old fashioned and it begins with M. Ten minutes after telling a friend about this he sent the following:

There once was an Oxford named Myrtle
Whose name came from rhyming with turtle
For her shape is the same
And her speed rather lame
Dear Myrtle's too old now to hurtle


Oh dear, I see that two Minors still grace my signature line. I must fix that as both have now found new homes.

We recently bought a minor called Monty,
Condition, very nice but not quite Diamante,
We tore around the lanes of Worcestershire County,
Sometimes at sixty sometimes close to ninety,
And it certainly scared the sh*t out of my great auntie!

Close to ninety?
I don't think so
In a moggy?
Faulty speedo!
