Obscure car names reference post!
« on: March 18, 2013, 08:28:39 PM »
(Wasn't quite sure where to put this post. Mils, if you think it fits someplace else better, do go ahead and move it.)

As we all know, pretty much everything in Cephiro is named after cars because CLAMP likes to keep themselves amused.  Some fans like to keep with this theme when creating original characters, places, etc etc.  I thought we could drop a bunch of obscure car names (or car-related words) that could be up for grabs for ficcing and whatnot.  (They really don't even have to be that obscure, just Cephiro-sounding.)

I've got a couple.  They're kind of feminine-sounding ones when I was trying to pick out an additional name for an old OC.

  • Lumina
  • Reatta
  • Cordia

I'll add some SEAT ones! (Spanish version of Volkswagen). They're mostly Spanish place names so they're actually pretty cool.

  • Leon ("lay-on")
  • Ibiza
  • Cordoba
  • Toledo
  • Altea
  • Marbella (the double L would be pronounced as a Y)
  • Arosa
  • Inca
  • Alhambra (technically it's the royal palace)

There's also "Cupra" (coop-ra) which I really like the sound of, which is a model name for extremely sporty versions of the above. xD

WE HAD A TOLEDO. I HATED IT SO MUCH. Have never felt so ill in a car DDDDDDDDDD:

Er. ...These are all going to be names I have or am probably GOING to use in fic somewhere because I am the idiot with a cast of over 100 and counting in the Protecting You stories. Steal at will! I only stuck with the car names for the Cephirans, but when I needed an ENTIRE COUNCIL and random others - er. Yes. (Also there's an assassin code-named Hardwick after the most evil roundabout EVER. T'ain't so bad now that one of the roads has a flyover option, but, yes, EVIL. XD)

  • Atenza
  • Zafira
  • Ales
  • Scirocco
  • Miura
  • Sirion
  • Dart
  • Cima
  • Raum
  • Tuscan
  • Yugo
  • Healey
  • Gallardo
  • Carrara
  • Altea
  • Morris
  • Trabant
  • Elan
  • Audi
  • Octavia
  • Testearossa
  • Mulsanne
  • Xantia
  • Elcar
  • Exige
  • Yaris
  • Passat
  • Skoda
  • Liesse
  • Mehari
  • Arcadianne
  • Demio
  • Edsel
  • Ales

SOME of which cause me to giggle thinking about them as names SO I DID (er. HI SKODA :D) And I have a Spark, who was named for an ancient AU character and before they made a car with the same name. XD

All of which are actually off the cast list, I can't remember where I saved the future-reference-names. But these are all car makes or models, heh.

Also I came home behind a Pajero tonight. XDD HELLO MONSTER FRIEND OF ASCOT.

Carina
Corolla
Cressida
Emina
Granvia

I think Toyota names are pretty good, I just lol at the image of expectant Cephiran mothers thumbing through an AutoTrader for babynames.

*grins* I like What Car mag for them, personally. XDD (Not least because my dad buys it moderately regularly so there's usually a handy reference in the house? XD)

I only have one, I'm using it in a fic myself, and I'm really surprised not to see it here because I'm pretty sure I've seen it used as a Rayearth OC before, but anyway...

Miata.
If your headcanon for Ascot's backstory doesn't make me want to cry, I probably won't believe it.

This is extremely handy reference for later. Though when I get stuck for MKR names I just usually take a glance around the parking lot at the mall or something. I have OCs I've used a few car names for.

Elantra
Camry
Sentra
Solara
Impreza
Avalon

I use to have a Toyota Camry, so I'm a bit overly fond of that OC. haha.
Legend says when you can't sleep,
it's because you're awake in someone else's dream.
So that's why I can never sleep properly...
Who the bloody hell is dreaming about me because so help me God,
I will smother them in the face with a throw pillow.

Ranker Car List

I've been going through a bunch of these looking for a few names. I'd compile a real list of some of the good ones, but I'm doing just about everything from my phone until I can get a new laptop battery, so that's a little difficult. Just two to add for now.

Terraza
Java
