The Big List of Cool Car Names

Author:

I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

So You Want to Give Your Car a Name?

Cool car name ideas galore is what awaits you below, but before we get to the good stuff, I need to get this intro out of the way, so here we go. The cars we drive say a lot about who we are, so giving them a name of their own is good. Now, it will totally be up to you whether you want everyone to know your car has a name, and some may not want others to know because they think people will think poorly of them; I don't think this is true at all. If I had to guess, I think that at least 25% of car owners have a name for their car, and that is nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud of your vehicle, and its name. One last thing, I've used the word "car" to cover cars, trucks, jeeps and vans.

Vanity License Plates (One of the Best Ways to Name Your Vehicle)

Personalized or custom license plates to put on the front of your car / truck is one of the easiest ways to let others know the name you gave your mode of transportation. They're not very expensive and you often have a large variety of colors to choose from ranging from plain and simple to fancy or glamorous. The only downside would be in choosing a short enough name to fit on the license plate.

Tips for Coming up With Car Nicknames

  • The color of your car should always play a role in the name of your car. For example, someone who owns a green vehicle and is a big fan of the TMNT could name the car Leonardo.
  • The age of your vehicle can play a big role in coming up with a name for it. If you have a car from the 1970s, for instance, why not read a book about the 70s and make a list of possible names.
  • Let's face it, some people take better care of their cars than others. Deciding on a nickname for a work truck or old beat up car should probably include a different process than coming up with a name for immaculate, sleek vehicles from the 2000s and later.

The Paint Job (A Much More Permanent Way To Name Your Car)

Having the name of your vehicle painted on it somewhere may be frowned on by some, but if you can afford it and you're sure of the name, it looks fantastic. A paint job looks and feels much more realistic than any kind of sticker, and if done by a reputable painter, it won't fade nowhere near as quickly.

Think Carefully About Controversial Vehicle Names - They Could Get You Into Trouble

I have a gay, female friend that thinks this scene is the funniest in the whole film, and would actually like to own an exact replica to drive around to bars and night clubs. The only thing that keeps her from doing it, she says, is not what her gay friends would think, but what her straight friends would think.

Car Decals and Vinyl Bumper Stickers Are Great Options for the Indecisive

Vinyl stickers are great ways to display the name of your car to the rest of the world. Most of them can be placed on windows, bumpers or even the body of the vehicle itself. The main benefit of stickers like these (besides the price) is that name length will not be an issue, and you can even add a piece of artwork along with it to make it stand out a bit more than it normally would.
