Personalized or "vanity" registration plates

Just wondering what folks have. I wanted to call my car Sweetheart in German but Schatzi and Schatz are taken. I was thinking "Liebste". Beings I don't speak German, can anyone give me input as to wether this is within context of calling my car sweetheart? Or mistress? Does anyone have suggestions or plates of your own?

Mine are Naval Aviator plates (unique to Virginia, they show Navy pilot wings and say Naval Aviator across the bottom).

The plate is " VF-84 "

Which is fighter squadron 84, the Jolly Rogers. My first squadron. The squadron colors are black, and so is the S600...

Current Fleet:
2016 Tundra 1794
2005 MB S600 (100K, Michelin AS3+, M1 0W40)
2002 V70-XC (228K Castrol 0W40)
2002 V70-T5 (198K, Mobil 1 0W40)
1932 Packard Sedan (straight 8, dual sidemount spares, original paint and interior, Shell Rotella 15W40)

I have 'S500 V8'. I kind of regret it now, and wish I went for 'W220 S500'

The rules here state between 2 and 8 characters. I'm not sure if that includes a space.

I was at the car wash a few months ago before the winter and a guy had an R129 with the license plate R129. He liked that I understood what it meant!

Love 'em .......................

Here's my little collection

Workshop Van (the local's call me "Disco" Dave because I do a lot of DJ'ing Pubs Weddings etc round these parts), so we have D15 KOE

Then there's Mels C Class, I used to Barefoot Waterski, this was my first PP B/FOOT which was originally on my Ford Scorpio Cosworth Estate so B17OOT
I actually had that one italicised way back, but lately there is one local Cop who has been giving local guys grief about PP's, so I ended up getting it done in the "UK Approved Font" because I got fed up with the "weigh anchor" keep pulling me when we put it on the C Class a while back

And then there is S55 DAV(e) so S55 DAU on my S Class , and as my SLK is getting a 5.0 V8 later this year I managed to get S50 DAU , so my 2 toys have matching plates .................

A few states in the USA do allow up to 8. I saw some West Virginia plates, on a car clearly owned by parents, for it said, "PPB4WEGO".

In California, you can, or at least could, have 7 characters plus half a space. In the 1980's, one man had the following on his Rolls-Royce: "RCH PHKR". I leave interpretation of this one up to the reader.

Our dog (GERMAN Shepard of course) is a female and her name is Schatzi which means sweetheart in a romantic way. I believe Liebste is sweetheart in a more sexy way. I went ahead and ordered the tag. I later discovered Liebste is synonymous with Donah. Well guess what........my wife's name is Donna! What are the odds? Too cool. The tag will have several appropriate meanings.
