Smile Help me name my truck

I've always named my vehicles. I don't know why, It's just something that I do. I've had my 69 F-250 for 2 years now, and I still haven't given it a name yet. The "65 F-100 I used to have I named Mayberry. It seemed to fit the truck, and the name made me smile. I even named my wife's car. It's a 2016 Nissan Versa. We named it "A Gerbil Named Hamster" I would Love your all's name ideas. I'm looking for something endearing, that will make you smile. I wouldn't name it after the color, because that is subject to change. This post is really just for fun and I hope you all get to goof off a little in the comments. Thanks for your ideas and comments.



By the way, you won't hurt my feelings, so hit me with your best shot.

I was thinking Freckles, but then you said not to base it on the color.

Maybe a bit of history on the truck would reveal the name?

All of the history that I know of for the truck: It was built in San Jose, Sold in San Diego, and I bought it in Fallon NV well used. It is a Camper Special, so that may open up some avenue's. Haha, it does look like it has freckles don't it.

I saw your thread title and forum nickname, and without even seeing your pics, the names that came to mind were either Charlie Horse, or (if the muffler still works) Hush Puppy.

I'm dating myself, aren't I?

I name all my vehicles. Heck, even the hand trucks have names here.

My suggestions:
Greyson
Dusty
Yosemite (camper reference)
Pearl
