We're surprised that we don't see many Airstreams with names displayed. We've always named our sailboats (required for documented vessels), and the new Airstream just fell into that paradigm. After living in Indonesia for three years, we had some favorite words that seemed to fit, although nobody ever knows what they mean until we explain. Our sailboat is named JAMU, Indonesian for various herbal tonics that restore whatever aspect of you that needs restoring or enhancing. Yes, that too The Airstream is named Jalan-Jalan, roughly translating to "a journey down the road". We had the name and 'home port' (Durango, CO) done to our design in vinyl lettering at a sign shop and applied it on each side near the bow of the Airstream. Looks good and starts a few conversations.

Our old gal is named Belle because she just looks like a "Belle" I think it may have something to do with the Christmas song "Silver Bells" too.

Hmm... Ours is named Bertha, which is a natural progression from a couple of our older Airstreams. I was going to name this one "Rio Dinero" about the time it consumed $12,000 in parts, but I was overruled. Bertha it is.

we called our AS--Southern Belle. I bought her in Georgia and hauled her home to Eastern Canada--in December. Because originally she came from Arizona, Southern just worked for me and Belle--- has a nice ring to it.

Have you got a pic of the name and lettering? I want some vinyl lettering done myself. We did add the name to the license plate. Bud, my wife's dad, was 99 when he passed away, thus the plate...

I have an uncle that didn't have a name till he was in the 1st grade. My Grand Parents couldn't come up with something they liked so they called him Baby Brother for a while thinking they would settle on something. As he got older they started calling him Sonny cause he had issues with Baby Brother. When he started school in the first grade the teacher ask him his name, he said Donald Duck. She finally got him to tell her he didn't have a name and was embarrassed so he just said Donald Duck. His Dad showed up to pick him up and the teacher said don't you think it's about time to give your son a name? He ask if she had any suggestions, she said how about Larry. He said Sonny what do you think about Larry. They all three agreed on Larry on the spot. Much later in his life after Larry married he and his wife decided to get his birth certificate changed from Baby Brother to Larry. He worked 30 some years for the US Forrest Service and was never ask to see his birth certificate.
I also have not been able to decide on a name for our trailer. Maybe I should call it Donald Duck!!

When we got her, my wife Beth thought I had a new mistress because I spent all my time with her. I began telling her "going out to make love to my mistress" Then I just started saying "going out to show Anna how much I love her" Everyone in our house calls her Anna. We all love her and feel she rounds out our life.

Sometimes the name has meaning, maybe an Epiphany, or a random experience. It may change as you get to know, it? I just drug mine home today and have yet to name it. I've always said "you know, one of those silver bullet trailers". But that isn't very original. Silver bullet. Sb? More like BS, ha ha. More like the wreck, wasps hive, busted. I think it will morph into its final name over the next year or two. For now it will be named bones, cause it has good bones. Silver bones perhaps. Cheers. Back to my tequila.
