need help naming my bike

hey,

as a few or maybe most of you know, i am building my own bike from a dumpster dive bike I found (photos soon to come)

As I am on the last leg of getting the final pieces and ready to repaint and mount the pieces, I was thinking my bike needs a name.

So far the ones that come to mind are (so far my favourites):
- spoken for (meaning its mine)
- taken (cause I took it home with me)
- lost & found (self explainitory - plus has a CX undertone to it)
- justified"
- justice
- phoenix
- reborn
- egg
- ballbreaker
- mullet
- lady
- curves
- guardian


I've thought of others and most were either cheesy or I was reaching too far.

Any ideas? All names welcome

I think mullet would be funny.

Do it american indian style... go out for a ride into nature, sit down, close your eyes, open them the first thing that you see is the name.

So I've got a bike named two dogs ****ing.

I suggested this to someone who asked for name suggestions for their new mountain bike:

Brunhilda



I think i'm going to name my next bike that.

My friends bike is called Bucephelus, after Philip of Macedon's steed (I think). Can't beat classical references!

Some day, when I have a bike that's worthy I'm going to name it "Rat Thing."

... I've also named bikes:
- White Sputter
- Spastic Fantastic
- The Toss (you have to say it w/ a reeeaaally gravelly voice, it's sort of a prison **** vibe)
