SALT LAKE CITY — After holding a naming contest last month, 10 of Salt Lake City's snowplows have now been given nicknames.

The city's divisions of Transportation, Engineering & Streets announced the winners of the contest on Friday. The names chosen were:

  • Sled Zeppelin (the overall winner)
  • Flake Effect
  • Snowy McSnowface
  • Rudy Snowbert
  • Jon Bon Snowvi
  • The Notorious P.L.O.W.
  • Ice Eccles
  • Snowbi Wan Kenobi
  • No More Mr. Ice Guy
  • Sugar Plows

The city said these plows have nametags with their new official titles on them, so keep an eye out!

Choosing fun names for snowplows has become a trend in recent years across the country and the world. Eagle Mountain held a similar contest last year to name its plows.
