George Harrison of The Beatles did just that, and not only did he compose a cool name for his BMW, he locked it in as history by registering this tag and new BMW at the Apple Records address of 3 Savile Row, London, UK, 1.

  To drive this home we also have a document of the name and address of registered keeper showing the first change of address on this vehicle from George Harrison at 3 Savile Row, London, UK, 1 to George Harrison Friar Park, Henley-on-Thames, his home, in England at the time.
