My Miata Has A Name – Karlino!

After almost 3 weeks thinking about this tradition of naming your Miata, I finally name “him” Karlino.

My Miata's name - Karlino!

Nothing that I found in Japanese seemed to work, or it translated funny/strange.  But while I was looking at different name meaning websites, I came across a listing of Irish based names.  Since I’m half Irish on both my Mom’s & Dad’s sides of the family, I figured some of my heritage would be appropriate.  Instead of the names, I was looking at their meanings.  I found one that best described my petite little wannabe racer.  I thought, that’s perfect!  My car is small & it wants to win.  So, the root name I built Karlino on is, Carlin.  The meaning of Carlin, in Irish Gaelic, is “little champion.”  Just right!!!


So, there you have it.  When you read a post here on Racing Ready & I mention Karlino, this will be in reference to my 1999 Mazda Miata.  We’ll see you out there!

  1. My car is named Merope, the seventh sister of the Pleiades (the one who hid her face in shame for marrying a mortal or perhaps in this case being seen with me driving it). Rather than a wanna-be you would call it a has-been. (Subara is Japanese for Pleiades.)

  2. My car is named “Treasure”. I’ve been going with a pirate theme for her from the beginning. I was originally going to name her the more piratey “Booty”, but I figured that would be too easy to misinterpret.
