Good names for rovers...

Recommended Posts

Yep, it's another name suggestion. I just downloaded Roverdude's rover and I would like some suggestions for the names besides Karibou?

I often name spaceplanes after birds, so analogously I often name rovers after land mammals. Skwerl, Wolf, Cheetah, etc.

"Won't flip MK I", "Certainly won't flip MK II", ...

(general rover names, not related to RoverDude's awesome creations ;) )

Mako or Hammerhead

Or Ricochet (one of my favorite RC cars growing up since it had tank steer and was invertible)

I like "Scarab," principally because I tend to name my designs after Ancient Egyptian themes, but it's also a semi-obscure "Battlestar Galactica" reference.

TheMoonRover :cool:

But I usually just call mine things like "Duna Rover" or "Minmus Hovercraft" etc.

How about naming them after land animals, for example: the mouse, the kitten (for small rovers), the badger, the wolfhound (for larger ones), the tiger, the rhino (for even bigger ones), or the elephant (for a roving base)
