boy and dad

These are the main characters in the Everything Goes books I'm working on. This is part of a cutaway illustration that will show, kinda, how a car works. It's a multilayered thing and is proving to be really difficult to get it all tidy and informative. You can see the sketch below.

In the manuscript they are listed as "boy" and "dad." I'm being asked by my editor to name the kid. Ideas, anyone?

    Gee guys, I hadn't even thunk of that direction.

    Chevy would be really funny. Baldwin was the name of the great locomotive industry based in Philadelphia years ago. Hmmmm….

    I like the simple/old names, like:
    – Sam
    – Harry
    – Joe

    Also, it's easy to absorb for a child who's reading the story.
