    Renault angers young French couples by naming its new car Zoé (timesonline.co.uk)

    I don't even care about the car but the article makes me laugh. People with more time on their hands than brain in their heads.

    Oh yeah, here's a picture of the car...like that businessman who named a car after his daughter Mercedes said, “I think people will be able to tell the difference.â€

    I feel I have been wronged by all the car manufactures that have called their cars the " Mark...something or other ":incazzato::cryin::incazzato::cryin::incazzato:

    Perhaps they should name the car the Renault GILP (Get A Life, People!)

    I can't wait for the Renault Rebecca225 and Sébastien Mortreux models. They'll be slow, impractical and sit in the garage an unhealthy amount of the time. On the other hand my baby cousin is named Camden.... perhaps I should sue BMW over that?

    Every one of these dullards who think they've done something beautiful for their daughters by giving them one of these boutique names that's "unique" and shouldn't be sullied needs to remember their kids will always have lots of friends with the same NOT unique name because of all the others who did the same thing.

    The same parents would probably be shocked if their daughters were already 16-ish when the Zoé came out because many of those girls would be screaming for their parents to buy them that car because it has their name on it.

    Interestingly, there is a woman who works for my company (albeit at a different location) whose name is Mini Cooper. Yes, she did buy the car when it came out in 2002 as she felt she had no other choice.

    I've wondered whether Minnie Driver's parents knew what they were doing. I saw her on a talk show a while back when she was pregnant and they were talking about names for her baby...the suggestion she liked best was Getaway...Getaway Driver...

    I'm waiting for a car to be named after Frank Zappa's son...maybe the Dodge Dweezil.
