First 787 - What To Name Him / Her

Many of us are following the development and build of the first 787. That baby is getting a lot of attention during its gestation. Do you think it deserves a name? Boeing, or maybe ANA, have the official right to name the first one, but hey, why can't we give our suggestions, or even find a nick-name from the A.net community?  Big grin

Here are a couple that I thought of . . .

Since the first baby will grow up in Japan with ANA, it could be a traditional Japanese name often used for first children:
- Taro, if you think the plane is a boy, or
- Hanako, if you think the plane is a girl

Any other ideas?

It would be nice. There was already one groundbreaking and still highly successful aircraft that had a name and was the first ever of its kind. That was Line Number 1, 747-121, aka City of Everett.

I wouldn't mind to see the first 787 getting a name.

Airplanes are always of female gender.

If the plane is gonna be a Japanese baby, I think they should name her Sakura, which is the Japanese word for cherry blossom. Cherry blossoms are one of the most beautiful and alluring attractions from Japan, and I think the name is just as beautiful.

C'mon Big B, FLY!
