Boy or girl? Scarlett or Rocket?

My friend Scott just reminded me that I haven't revealed the name of my new Element. I didn't mean to leave everyone hanging...
I think I've settled on Scarlett. After checking around on the Element Owners web site, I found there were a LOT of Ellie's, Watson's and even a couple of Ruby's. I didn't see any others named Scarlett and if my car is a girl, it seems like a good fit.
But here's my dilemma--is my car a girl or a boy? It's so boxy and kinda tough looking in it's own little way. (Scott, no lesbian jokes...) If it's a boy, then Scarlett doesn't fit very well and I would probably go with Rocket. (As Kath said, "as in the rocket's red glare". Also, it just seems kind of like an inside joke--what rocket would be built like a box??)
Sooooo.....thoughts?

"She" is a girl, she is red and pretty and just cause she is a little boxy just means she works out. Scarlett should definately be the name. And quit keeping her so clean next to my dirty car in the lot.

I agree. I haven't driven a car yet that felt like a male. Deep down, I think they're all ladies.

Scarlett it is. I'm waving my magic wand. So Mote It Be.

Okay you guys, I think you've convinced me. I just didn't want the name to seem to "wimpy" for my car. But when I think about it, wasn't Scarlett O'Hara kind of a kick-ass woman? ;)

Ok, so this is a bit late, I admit. However, I think a name change is in order. Ann and I were driving, and it hit me. Her name should be....

Aunt Flo.
