Question What's in a name?

Had some thoughts about our names here on GasSavers:
  • What does your name on GasSavers mean?
  • Why did you name your car what you did?
  • What is the pic in your Avatar? What does it mean?
  • What does your quote in your sig mean?

I might as well start!
  • OdieTurbo - "Odie" was a nickname I earned in college way back in 1990, I was always happy! "Turbo" got tacked on when I bought an '85 Camaro that I souped up.
  • The_Last_SL1 - Simply the fact that the 2002 is the last model year for the Saturn SL1. The underscores are there because as a programmer, I tend to remove all spaces from field and variable names!
  • Avatar - It's a picture of the Master Chief, the protaganist from the Halo Xbox games (see next line).
  • Finish the Fight! Halo 3, September 25, 2007! - I'm a HUGE fan of the Halo Xbox game series, the 3rd installment comes out in September.

How about the rest of you?

Red came from my first car in highschool. A bright red 95 caravan, the only one of its kind in the lot. I was easy to find

TJ is the factory designation for my Jeep.

Avatar is from the one and only time I took the hard top off.

TomO is my name, Tom O'Connor (very creative I know, but everyone calls me TomO anyways)

Thrifty McGasSaver is just a fun name I came up with for my car.

My avatar pic is the name of the car group I'm affiliated with (Local Import Group)

Dax = long time nickname / handle. I used to DJ under the guise of "dax". I have it tattooed on my back. To be honest, I think it was a case of mistaken identity that stuck.

The Beater = very descriptive of the Civic.

The current avatar is the icon Honda came up with for the Beat. I colored it red to match the Beat that I owned.

(wife's nickname)sman

Free contest - what's my wife's formal name and how did you know this?

I'd like to get some wild guesses followed by the correct answer later tonight.

No cheating doing a google search (too easy) unless you just have to know and if you do find out this way please don't post the answer - thanks.
