She Needs a Name

On our most recent trip to New England, we decided as a family that we need to name our GPS.

We have already personified her quite a bit; we apologize when we decide to disobey her orders, we question why she insists on not having our house on her maps, and we laugh at her good-naturedly when she starts politely, repeatedly insisting we make a u-turn.  Oh, silly GPS.  You don’t know the back roads we do.  Just chill out and enjoy the ride.

“When possible, make — a — u-turn.”

We opened up the question to the boys on the way to Old Sturbridge Village.  Here, in no particular order, are the suggestions:

  • Screaming Bazooka Burrito
  • Screaming Banshee
  • Banshee Burrito
  • Screaming Banshee Bazooka Burrito
  • Howie Get There (this was David’s suggestion.  Oh how punny he is; however, as I explained to him numerous times, Howie is not a girl’s name.)
  • Regina Phalange (my suggestion.  Come on.  Phoebe Buffay’s go-to alter ego name.  I always laugh when I remember her saying “I’m Regina Phalange.  PHALANGE.“)
  • Screaming Banshee Burrito Phalange
  • Linda

What’s your opinion?

  1. I think Linda is hilarious too, especially after reading your long list of crazy names! Come up with a good one and we'll steal it to name our baby if it's a girl. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Those of you who know our children will not be surprised to know that Cameron is the one who suggested Linda. He was disgusted by all the silliness, especially his mother screaming "PHALANGE" over and over again.
