This came up in another thread (how will you treat your car) but it seemed deserving of it's own thread. I hope this hasn't been asked yet.

My girlfriend says she wants to call it "a**hole" but I don't feel it's very creative and I think it would make me sad. That said, I'm siding towards an even less creative "computer". Even though I don't want to consider myself a Treky, I likely fill the criteria. In the end we'll likely just go with "car"

Also, one question...will the name of the car need to be preceded with "hey" ?

I have a question first: is the voice responding always female, or can you choose between M/F?
Hal's voice from 2001 a Space Odyssey would be nice - very comforting (until it's not). I'm hoping there will be other voice offered as an update or paid update. I know you could do this with old GPS devices. Dennis Hopper was an option on my old Tom Tom.

There was a slew of aftermarket voices created for garmins, and any head unit that used the garmin gps could use the voice file also.
Homer Simpson, Dr. Nightmare, Samuel L Jackson, etc. I suppose William (KITT) Daniels could record one if he wanted.
Would also like to have external sounds of KITT on the car for pedestrians.

Since it's a German car, I will call it Frau Blucher and I expect it to play horses neighing whenever I call up voice command.
Then I will call the car Elsa Heidi

By the time you finish saying its name you forget what you wanted to ask it the first place...
