lol, I was thinking of what a uneek name that was.  Enjoy and savour that new car smell, it doesn't last nearly long enough. original.gif

Me too!  I read the title thinking, please don't have spelled your kids name like that!!  But a car (or any other non-person thing) - anything goes!!  

After all, champion racehorse and sire Lonhro has a mis-spelled name.  (he's named after the stock exchange code for the London Rhodesia mining company, but the rules say you can't name a horse after a business, so he's deliberately mis-spelled... Lonhro, not Lonrho).  It's one of my favourite (non-rude) naming stories.  I have lots of favourite rude naming stories biggrin.gif

Have fun driving original.gif

You mean "Crystal Blue" - as per http://www.kia.com.au/cars/colours/Grand_Carnival

It doesn't actually have a "h" in it.

Congrats on your car though!

It is a nice shade of blue and I'm not even a big one for blue.
