Have you ever wondered if your car is more Sheila than Sharon?
This online name generatorMany drivers have been able to give their vehicles the right name by contacting us.
By entering a range of your own personality features, you can get ahead of the curve to make sure you’ve got the right moniker for your motor.
It is Dolly, Betty, AND BEAST that are the most popular names for automobiles.
A survey of 2,000 car owners revealed the names which have stood the test of time since last year, with Betsy still in the top 10 – but Boris, George and Bertha are among those which have slipped out.
The research, which was conducted by Your Red Car, an online auto marketplace powered Santander, showed that car lovers in the country take great care when choosing a new moniker.
It was found that 18% of respondents look for inspiration in name from movies, closely followed by books (17%) and their favorite TV shows (16%).
The main factors which influenced their car’s moniker includes the model (29 per cent), its personality (24 per cent) and the number plate (20 per cent).
Some of the quirkier names to feature on the list include Arsene – presumably after the former Arsenal manager – and Pablo the Picasso, as a homage to the late Spanish painter.
Drivers love their vehicles deeply.
A spokesperson for Your Red Car said: “We know just how important cars are to some people, from family trips to essential work journeys, they get us from A to B when we need them.
“They play such a big role in our lives and it’s important that we trust them, so it’s no surprise that many drivers have developed such an emotional connection to them – and with that, comes a name.
“Just like baby names, these can change over time and it’s interesting to see how popular culture and current events can impact this.
“For example, we couldn’t help but notice Boris dip out of the most popular names, dropping from 8th to 13th place when compared to 2021.”
People’s affinity with their vehicles runs deep, too.
A staggering 63% stated that their car is so vital to their daily life that they couldn’t live without it.
43% said that they felt a special affection for their car.
Worryingly, six per cent of drivers admitted they put more thought into naming a car over a baby’s name, while eight per cent said they had thought more about their vehicle’s name than their pet’s.
29% of car owners believe that car names are in and out fashion in a similar manner to baby names.
Peace of mind while on the road
The research found motorists also feel protective of their car names, with 59 per cent of those with a named car admitting they’d be bothered if their friend stole their chosen moniker.
The decision is big for many. More than half (53%) of people who give their car a moniker spend a few days or several weeks to get it right.
Unsurprisingly, the most important factor in choosing a car was price (74%), closely followed by fuel economy (both 57%), and practicality (57%).
You should also consider how the car looks (45%), and how well maintained (44%).
A spokesperson for Your Red Car added: “Whatever name you choose, there’s a wide range of cars available to suit you. We know how important it is for motorists to have peace of mind when hitting the road.”
