    How could I forget Terrazza, of course with today's Buick it should be EnTerrazza.

    What is a Terrazza anyways(I know what the minivan looks like)?
    Terrazza in Italian translates to a Terrace.

    Not only the name but I also like the styling of Skylark and LeSabre.

    I like 'Invicta' best, but I own one so I'm probably biased.
    After that; Electra & Roadmaster. And Super.

    Re: Which is your favorite Buick name?

    Wow this thread goes back a long way.

    I think Buick has, or had, the best collection of names among GM's brands. I like a lot of them.

    In no particular order:

    LeSabre
    Regal
    Riviera
    Park Avenue
    Skylark
    Skyhawk
    Wildcat
    Electra

    To me these were just good solid names. Easy and unambiguous to pronounce (no "Celestiq" in the bunch), which is good marketing. And "Park Avenue" and "Riviera" may be the best names ever given to a luxury car.

    +1 on both, but for the current times "Electra" would be perfect for an EV

    Funny. I remember thinking how dated and old fashioned the name "Electra" sounded to me the last time it was used. Now it's perfect.
