I really get a kick out of the names that Virgin gives to its aircraft. However, I am sure that there are some clever names still out there that could be used. Have you got any ideas? Here are a few of mine. Some of the names refer to characters in songs and are noted by an asterisk.
1) Vestal Virgin
3) Hard Hearted Hannah*
4) Mrs. Robinson*
6) Little Red Riding Hood
8) Virginia Wolf
9) Lulu (after the British singer)
10) Madame Butterfly
12) Auntie Mame*
13) Honky Tonk Woman*
14) Brown-eyed Girl*
15) Suzy Wong (from the movie)
16) Krakatoa Katie (volcano from a Mighty Mouse cartoon)
17) Wicked Woman*
18) Caribbean Queen*
19) Wahine (pronounced WA-HEE-NEE and mean girl in hawaiian - when VS starts service to Honolulu)
20) Lusty Lola

There's some good suggestions there EXCEPT Margaret Thatcher (yuk). Don't you know that Sir Richard is a Labour supporter!! You have to think of an appropriate registration (G-V---) to go with the name as well.
