I am creating an Irish virtual airline and wish to give all the aircraft names. Any suggestions?

I liked the fact that Aer Lingus called their BAC 1-11 and 737-200 sims St. Thetic.

Not quite sure why this is in Agony Aunt but hey, a little light relief is always welcome. Unfortunately, the only one I can think of is too rude and I don't want Marge to spank my botty!

Cheers

Well if you would like to go the serious route and choose real Irish names here is a good site:
http://http://www.ncf.carleton.ca/~bj333/HomePage.boys.html#celtic (http://www.ncf.carleton.ca/~bj333/HomePage.boys.html#celtic)

but not sure this one would be suitable:

Dympna - (IrGael; Celtic) or Dymphna; suitable one, virgin saint. An Irish saint. Her place of martyred death is marked by a monument in Gheel, Belgium, where she had fled for her life and
virtue, as her own father (an Irish king, as the story goes) was determined to wed her, his own daughter, following the death of his wife and queen (Dymphna's natural mother). She is
traditionally the patroness of those with mental illness and nervous afflictions, but has lately been adopted (in light of her personal history) by victims of incest and other sexual abuses. :E

SAS had a Jumbo 'Bent Viking'! One cannot take too much care over aircraft names. Even BA named a 757 'Winchester Castle'- sounds nice, but Winchester Castle is a very nice name for council offices of all things.

Watching Bally-Kiss-Angel could give you some good ideas. In fact you could call one Peter and one Assumpta. Then if they had an inflight transmission, it could go like this


"Peeeetor"

AsssUMPta"

"Peetorr"

AaaasssumpTA"

"Peeeeeeeeetorrr"

Aaaaaaaaassuuuuuuuuuuuumtorrr"




....and so on (I guess you had to see the show :( )

A friend of mine owned the aircraft under that reg, it was an old Sececa.

Sececa? I remember talking to the pilot of said aircraft a few years back on the wireless. It was rumoured that it was owned by a farmer called Mr McDonald.

Why not use Irish names like Sinead? Saint Patrick might be a good one too.

It was used on a Seneca, apparently now not flying, but a pic of it can be found at http://www.southaer.com/sa/parts_sales/sales/sales.htm

And no, I have no connection whatsover with Southaer.:p
