Naming Your Car

Getting behind the wheel of a car, for some, means assuming a whole new personality. It's as if the car were some kind of subconscious alter ego. Though it's important to maintain safety on the road, some people cannot help but feel like they are a whole different person while they're driving. They feel invincible.

We’ve all seen that guy who likes to weave in and out of traffic, only to be stopped at the very same red light right next to you. As he edges forward so as not to make eye contact, you see a giant decal on the back of his window indicating the name of his car: Invincible. He would name his car that, wouldn't he?

So how do you find the perfect name for your car?

Naming a car, in a sense, gives it a personality; it’s a way for an owner to form some kind of bond with their vehicle and feel a greater sense of ownership. Not only that, but it can also influence the personality of the owner on the road, as if they have some kind of name to live up to themselves.

There’s many ways that people choose to name their car. Naming a car has become trendy, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing! Some people choose to name their car after them, while others will look to the maker of the car for some ideas. Other people like to take colors into consideration when finding a nickname. Whatever way you choose to name your car, there’s some other things to be considered:

  • Car type: The type of car you have can really give you a few obvious suggestions for names. Whether it’s a fast car, a large car, an old car, or so on, you can find something about it that helps to name it!

  • Length of name: If you plan on plastering the car’s name all over it, or even just on a window, you’ll want to be sure that it is short enough to where your decals can be big enough to be read on the road!

  • Your own personality: Fun and quirky, or easygoing and laidback? Looking deep into your own personality can help generate a few names. This can be your general personality or your personality on the road, if different. (Road rage much?)

  • What the car “looks” like: Some people can simply look at their car and be like “I think she looks like a Sally! Ride, Sally, ride!” and a name is born.

Naming your car is a fun time! You’ll likely be spending a lot of time in it, and perhaps have many, many happy years together.

Good luck finding a nickname for your car baby!
