Mia Kia

Did you know Virginia is the no. 1 state for personalized license plates? It took a few tries on the Department of Motor Vehicles website to create a letter combination that wasn't already in use. John came up with this one. I was perfectly happy with it, til he observed that it could also stand for "Missing in action" "Killed in action" Great.
Cool catch

A great idea.

Cute! I think in Italian this would stand for "my Kia" :)

You could go phonetic instead but you lose the lettering fun (MEA KIA). And yes, my first thought was in the military sense- sorry!

@notsorandompics And if you will notice the auto emblem, tthat's what it is!

@olivetreeann I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that not many are familiar with military acronyms.

Fun numberplate - I thought it meant 'my Kia' too :)

@alia_801 Good. That's the plan!

Fun idea. My first thought was "My Kia" (in Italian Mia means mine) and didn't even think of Missing in Action.

Allison, is this your new kia we saw a few weeks ago ? Clever use of words for your 'registration number' (we call them registration numbers in the UK, but you cannot choose your own number !!

...forgot to add......clever use of words ...but then we expect that because you are a librarian !

@phil_howcroft You can request a personalized license plate for an additional fee. The states make a good bit of money that way. Some people call them "vanity plates." Oh and the credit goes to my husband who is't a librarian but he is a great wordsmith. (including completing The NY Times Sunday crossword puzzle in ink!)

@dmrams the car we traded in was a Chrysler PT Cruiser and the plate was "PT QTEE"!

ha! nice one

my first thought was a Kia belonging to a girl named Mia. If the words had been reversed, I would have thought "my Kia". I don't think many people would think of the military translation.
