I knew I wanted something “nature-y” for my new car’s name, so I looked up botanical girl names and one really struck me as feeling right – Laurel, a nice green plant used to make wreaths in ancient Rome.  Then I found out that Laurel means Peace and Success, and I knew I had it.  Then because I called Bettie “Bettie Lou” a lot, I wanted Laurel to have a middle name and since I bought her in June and June was my maternal grandmother’s middle name, I sounded Laurel June out and liked it.

So, I dubbed her Laurel June.
