Carrera too common? Rename your Porsche - If you are getting tired of your Porsche’s name, why not rename it? You can give yourself “Targa” status or even put Porsche lettering on your old jalopy. If you can’t afford to own a Porsche, you can at least have the brand name.

Allentown franchise unveils new name: IronPigs - The Philadelphia Phillies’ AAA franchise has a new name, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, after fans submitted 3,500 entries in a naming contest. The winner was “the weirdest one out there”, according to its creator, Ron Steele. It refers to the area’s steel-making history (immortalized in the Billy Joel song of the same name) with its primary ingredient being pig iron.
