The "Name that ....." giveaway!

Did the clue..."rock a bye...." give any of you a clue as to my giveaway theme???? 

Well, it's nothing Christmassy, however it is a 'gift' I gave myself (or rather,  am continuing to give myself for the next 5 years [grimace!!] ), it's something I've had for a month or so now and it has no name, which I'm sure, is quite inappropriate!!!  Here it is......

.................. I'm sure you remember my new "baby",  my Volkswagen Tiguan in Metallic Mountain Grey!! [hint hint perhaps??]  Lots of bloggers suggested a competition to name  her... (I'm tending to refer to it as a 'she', don't know why....maybe because I need some support in our all male household!!???)'s how it goes........
there will be three prizes for the best name you can come up with for my little gal (or guy)!
1st prize is this:

1/2 yard Australia Flag fabric by Nutex
1 fq of Golden Holden by Nutex
1 fq of Giggles by Hoffman
2010 Roses diary (we all know how I love roses!)
Copy of Patchwork and Stitching 'Kids Special ' Edition
approximately 3 metres of ricrac

(I figure the Aussie travelling bug hit me with this prize!!)

2nd Prize is:

1 cot size panel
2 baby themed quilt labels
2 rolls of matching ribbon (they're in the piccie, you may just have to zoom in!)
3 packets of baby themed buttons

(this prize came to me with the 'my baby' theme in mind!!)

and finally, 3rd prize:

1 small panel
1 yard of matching yellow check
(had the AWD in mind here!!!)

So, now you've just got to get to it.....

Leave a comment with a suggestion for a name for my little 'babe' and you'll be entered into the competition, nice and easy!  No linking, no widgets, but if you want to tell others about it, I won't complain!!!!

I'll choose the winning names based on the ones I like best....simple as that!  Failing that, if nothing stands out, I'll simply do a random draw!!!!

Because I figure this poor gal's (or guy, depending on what you think!!)  gotta have a name before the year's out, I'm going to let this comp. run until midnight, New Year's Eve 2009...Australian Eastern Standard Time and will announce the winners New Year's Day.  What a lovely way to start 2010!!!

Please note:  Judge's (my) decision will be final, no correspondence will be entered into....yadda yadda yadda......the nature of this comp is all in good fun....I aim to be completely fair.....please only enter if you wish to play nicely!!!

Sorry to have to state that but.....better to say it up front than deal with nasties later!! lol

I am willing to post worldwide so have fun, let your imagination go wild, but just remember I will be closing at midnight, my time on New Year's Eve so if you are overseas, please keep this in mind!

Good luck and let the fun begin!!
Sugary hugs :O)

How very generous you are to let us have a say in your new baby's name :o)!! What fun!!!
Okay ... well, I think you should call her Timmy (as in 'T'iguan 'i'n 'M'etallic 'M'ountain Gre'y') Sorry, had to go the for "Y" in Grey cos Timmg just sounded silly LOL.

Hi Wendy,

I tend to give my cars long names. I think yours should be Voluptious Vicki Volkswagon - "Vick" for short. Hugs,
