I don't think I've told you this yet, but his name is Nico - Mazda MX-5 (Mk1 / Mk2) Forum

Why? Nico is a western name that sound similar to “nikkou” (日光), which means sunlight. Coincidentally, it is also the name of a Japanese city that I’d like to visit. Yes, a male name (contrasting my bro’s previous MX5, who was named Mia), because I hope that it’ll be my buddy for a long while. He is a bit temperamental, though…
