My Character's Personalized Plates

I saw this license plate the other day, and I was disgusted. Disgusted that anyone would not only THINK it, but that they would pronounce it to the world by putting it on their license plate. (And oh yeah, I'm leaving you in suspense.)

But it did get me to thinking . . . what would my characters put on their license plates (if, you know, they had cars)?

My bad guy: BRNSRPWR [Brains are power]

Prince Bob: CHRMSBRO [Charming's Brother]
 or maybe LILBRO [Little Brother]

Prince Charming: PERFECT (Okay, so maybe this is what Bob would put on Charming's personalized plates.)

Yeah, my efforts are a little weak, but working with only 8 letters is hard! I may have to come back to this.

But how about you? What would your characters put on their personalized plates?

Ooh, how fun! Mine would be: LWMWBB (Life without music would B flat) Get it? 'B flat'? :o)

Probably BRN2RCK :)

Stina said...

OMG! It's only 5:30 am and I'm had only four hours sleep (was reading late). My brain's still asleep. ;)

Renae said...

I'm with Stina, I was up way late finishing Unearthly and my brain is not working! It is amazing what people will put on their plates!

But I love yours!

Tracy said...

LMAO! I love that Prince Charming's little brother's name is BOB.

Tristan's would probably be GIF2WMEN

What was the license plate??? :) Dunno what mine would be. Depends on the day:)

Angela said...

Good question. HT CHK maybe?

Joanne said...

Hm, what a good exercise to sum up our mc's ... LVNGLIFE works for mine, suggesting the question of just how she decides to do this.

I can't believe people pay extra to make their cars more identifiable. I like your ideas for character tags.

Melissa said...

Haha, this is too funny! I laughed out loud at Prince Charmings!

Heidi-"Heidi in Real Life" said...

"oldfrump" would do nicely for me. I'm DYING--what did the license plate you spied say? Prince Charmings--LOL!

You've got a knack for license plates!

Victoria Dixon said...

Oh, Janet, this is TOO much fun. And now I'm insatiably curious about the plate you saw! Jie's plate: Shansdad. Xiongli's: Irule or Iruleu. LOL

Laurel Garver said...

What a fun idea. I think Dani's plates (were she old enough to drive) would be DADYSGRL [Electra, anyone?] or maybe EVRSKTCH [she's perpetually sketching something].

BTW, I have a gift for you on my blog.

I'm not sure what my characters would put on their license plate, but my kids and I have a lot of fun trying to decipher the ones we see. I even 'threatened' to ask somene in a parking lot about theirs once, and my daughter about died. *that was funny!*

I dunno' what I'd use for a license plate. Funny; I always thought I would know, if I ever had a chance to use it.

Going mad thinking up what number plate you could possibly have seen. Tell, tell!

My MC's number plate (assuming he was allowed to drive, which is unlikely, because he's both twelve and the cause of serious disasters) would be CURSED.
