Who names there cars?

I must admit I havent named my XR6 but the family wagon is called "Kermit". Maybe I'm strange but all my cars end up with names after a while. Just like my computers, they all have names too.

Does anyone else name there cars?

Cheer,

I tend to name mine based on the rego plates. My old Charade got "Sylvia" because the plates started with SYL.

However, our new XR6 starts with AOF... so my husband, being the creative genius he is, drew some inspiration from South Park and named it ASSES OF FIRE..... the whole family and all the relo's have got in on the act and reckon it's the way they recognise our car out on the streets.

My number plate has "GL" in it so my g/f calls her "Gliss" Not quite the fear invoking name that I was after. I tried to talk her into something like "thumper", "bruiser", "pounder" or anything other than "Gliss, princess of the flower pixies" anyway, I don't mind

Agreed. Exemplified by the fact that all we can do is complain about the situation on forums rather than reclaiming naming rights! It’s a matriarchal society :(

My wife has called her 99 Lancer .......... Bessy ..... its only a 4cyl 1.6L and we had a full load up a big hill, she said come on Bessy ???, and that was that its now called Bessy.

As for me, never named my cars, and I am not going start.
