Question What have been the best car names over the years?

In this age of alphanumeric soup (MDX, STi, GTI, SRX, 330i, G35x, C230, etc.), cars with actual names are getting more rare, it seems. Over the years, there have been some crappy names (Subaru Justy? WTH does that mean?), but some really cool sounding ones as well.

What say you, OT?

Lamborghini Murcielago?
DeTomaso Pantera?

I like "Cayman", but generally I think all of the good/appropriate names have been taken. I mean, seriously... what the hell is a "Rondo?"

The Odsmobile Intrigue... that didn't have the model name printed on its ass.

Ironic.

I was actually going to list Cayman, as I really like it, but then I realized that it sounds a little like "Gayman," so I left it off.

I do like the name though.

Rondo is a musical term -- it actually translates loosely to "return."

I guess that doesn't bode well for long term reliability.
