‘Kate’ (K8)

I’ve been trying to think of a suitable name for the Defender for a while, but haven’t been able to come up with anything that seemed to fit.

Today I was looking at the registration number (licence plate) for inspiration, but the letters GAC don’t conjure up any names for me. Then I looked at the opposite end of the plate and out it jumped! K8 – Kate!

I’ll mull it over for a while, but I think the Defender is going to be named Kate.


  1. I don’t think Gordon would appreciate a sex change at this point!

    It seems to be a popular convention to give Land Rovers a male name, but I’m so used to all vehicles and vessels being considered feminine. Plus, David firmly believes that all Defenders are female (possibly due to their temperament)!

    David thinks she should be called ‘Sweet Dreams’ as she is the polar opposite of my first (uncompleted) Defender ‘Nightmare’.

    I guess it will either be Kate or Sweet Dreams.
