Eagle was used by AMC. Since that company doesn't exist anymore, perhaps available.

GM/Buick may take issue with Electra

I prefer 'End,' as in the last car to use the E naming convention.

The Essex Esprit. This one might be the only one of the few imported into the US that's still on the road.

I like the current names, Elise, Exige and Evora. They appeal to me by sound and reference. Maybe it's because I like the cars and that they represent 25 years of Lotus. I hope these names get tagged onto new cars that fulfill the attainable sporting street car niche. Continuity and longevity are valuable. New platforms can take advantage of heritage. Some manufacturers come up with a new name for each new platform. Aventador, Hurican, Pista, Enzo, LA F . That works too yet much of the rest of the world seems to hold on to winning names or formulas and tags. 911, Golf, A4, M3, S Class, Abarth, Corvette, Mustang, Camaro, Supra, Corolla, Range Rover. You can argue for either way. New platform, new name. New platform, traditional name. I hope Lotus is proud enough of the cars they are turning out today to retain a place in their lexicon for cars that meet similar briefs in the future. But if they must change that:

If Artioli's grand daughter wasn't named Elisa, what we know as the Elise would've been the ideal resurrection of the Europa name (rather than the variation that wound up with that name in the European market only).

I'd love to see the older names like Elan and Elite come back too.
