WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Okay, I’m curious… have any of you named a car? I’ve had three cars in 18 years. I named my first car, a 1979 tan chevette, Clovis (it was a chocolate milk commerical that included a chocolate cow named Clovis…I was 16…what can I say?). My second car… was a 1988 red Chevy Cavalier that I named Cephas. Cephas is Greek for Peter/which means Rock. I was in my I just graduated from a Christian college and I know a bunch of cool Greek biblical words and I’m so cool phase. I also chose it because my German name in German class was Petra (Petra means Rock, literally and it’s also a Petra album… and if you don’t know who I’m talking about you are either too young to read this blog or you have never listened to Christian music. Either way, welcome). My third car, my current, formerly berry, now dusky fawn car, is named Ruthie from a Tony Evans sermon that talked about, “God knows where Boaz lives..” (If Boaz is new to you, read the book of Ruth in the Bible. It is a story of God’s faithfulness in desperate times).
So, I have Clovis, Cephas, and Ruthie. Anybody else ever name their car? If so, what did you name yours?
