Your Airstream's Name & Why?

After reading the threads for several years, I noticed so many people have named their Airstream. My wife named ours "Alice", after "Alice's Advertures in Wonderland" because she was looking forwar to all of the the good times and trips. Little did I know the "Alice's Advertures" would take on a second meaning for me..."what's that for?", "how do I repair that?", "now what?"....and so on.

So, what's your Airstream's name & why?

Our new Sovereign is (much) larger than our previous Airstream, hence, "Big Bertha", "Bertha" for short.

The PO called our trailer "Fairley" which he believed was the name of the very first registered owner and, so , appropriate.

We stuck with it.

I have, I admit, used a few other names at times...........

Our girl is Lucy, in honor of Lucille Ball and the Long, Long Trailer. Her tow vehicle is Olivia for no particular reason.

Here, the girls are preparing to depart on yet another adventure.

Aluminum is made from bauxite ore. In its natural state, it's anything but lightweight...
