Van Life: Naming and Interior Pictures

Guys, you came up with some incredible names for our 1995 Chevy G30 Roadtrek Popular 210. We are incredibly indecisive people, so you actually made it even harder for us to choose "the one," especially with 34 suggestions! But, after many sleepless nights (kidding), we finally picked a name.
In no particular order, here are a few other names that were not winners, but were highest on our list (this helps you experience our mental agony over naming our new baby).

7) La Van - submitted by Jame & Melody. Goes nicely with our last name, La Vigne.

6) Bluebird - submitted by Janice. She brought up a good point since our Subara Baja was named Big Bird because of its yellow color. The Roadtrek has blue on it, and we live in Colorado, which is known for its bluebird skies.

5) From Good Mobile Homes - submitted by Dave. Justin's favorite band is From Good Homes, so this is very clever. But, it's a little too long.

4) Kiwi - submitted by Rachel. The kiwi is a flightless bird only found in New Zealand, one of our favorite places on Earth.

3) Nap Time - submitted by Ryan. This is sort of an inside joke, but Justin is always asking his nephews and niece if it's nap time.

2) Homeless - submitted by Leanne. Pretty accurate.

But, the name that stuck out for us as a keeper ...

The Wanderer

"Wanderer" was submitted by Russ and Christy, so you both get a prize!! The Wanderer goes nicely with our own moniker, "Wandering La Vignes." We hope to wander to many new places and old favorites in our van.  

Thank you all for giving us so many great suggestions. I'll leave you with a few interior shots as we are heading on another 16-day road trip to Utah for Outdoor Retailer and beyond for adventuring.
