"England and America are two countries separated by a common language." Oscar Wilde
We could adopt "Eli". At least it can be derived from Elise.
The "back off" mud flaps seem wise. People tailgate my Highrider but I can see around them. In the Elise I won't be able to tell if someone is about to pass them as I pull out to pass the car in front of me!
Of course as long as I have the revs up it would have to be an Enzo to hit me.
