meet my new obsession: vw camper love

So here she is.....
.

Our potential new vw camper 1979 bay! I've longed for such a long time and now we've pretty much decided to take the plunge and buy her.... but she's not ours just yet, hopefully sometime in the week. She's ready to roll apart from a few minor little changes and of course personalising the interior. Wish i'd taken some interior pics. For those that know me a bit better will know that i don't really like the colour blue! But i think she looks pretty damn cool in blue (and i CBA to re-spray..)
.
So i've decided to completely embrace the blue for the exterior but keep the interior a bit more neutral. Considering this fabric off ebay for curtains....
.

I'm obsessed already and we've not even bought her! Another important thing is to name her, I've come up with the following so feel free to give your opinion to help my decision lol
..
Bella (as in bluebell and means beautiful)
Skyla (sky blue)
Kiki
Lola
Lyla
Asti
Ella
Stella (lee's preference but i just think of the beer)
Estelle
Nora
Celeste
.
Didn't want anything too serious but maybe a bit retro inspired. Thoughts please!?

I like Stella also. I immediately think vintage, because there is a vespa that is called the Stella, and it is quite cool.

I love this! I have always wanted one of these and am hoping that I can rent one for our upcoming travels.

My vote is for Skyla as it has a hippie feel to it (like the camper van) but it does seem like a Bella to me.

I'm so excited for you!!! I think she looks like a "Bella". The curtain fabric you picked is just perfect. I can't wait to see more pictures!

Bella or Celleste are the best ones for me, i'm so jealous! I have always wanted a camper van, lucky lucky you. x

My vote is for Estelle. She definitely needs an old grandma name. How about Edith? Or maybe Mildred or Norma. Those are my grandmothers' names!!! :) ha ha

I wouldn't call that material 'neutral'! Good Luck. I've always liked Stella but also a variation of Bella - Belle. look forward to knowing what you decide. no excuse not to come down to road test her!

I like Lola, Lyla or Bella, but then these are all on my list for if I ever have a kid! :)

Oh, she's a dream. I want, want, want one too. (Stella is my daughter's name so I agree with above on Edith)
