Naming Your Wheels

Giving a car a name gives it a little personality of its own. There’s no shame in taking so much pride in your car and giving it a name; after all, you earned that car, you bought it, it’s yours! Putting so much money into something, you’d better show it off! A car is one of your most expensive purchases, next to a mortgage and student loans.

You can have a car that’s not so tough and still give it a good, masculine-sounding name to boost its manly appeal. Whether you’re a guy looking to name his car or even a girl looking for badass car names, here are some factors to think about as you consider the perfect name:

  • Car type: The type of car you have can and really should influence the name of your car. Is it sporty? Is it luxury? Is it old or brand new? Even the make or model of the car can suggest some good ideas for names!
  • Car color: Many people look at the color of their car and just know what they will call it. Will you be one of those people? Check out this crazy long list of car names sorted by color!
  • Your personality: This one should be a given, but have you evaluated your own personality lately? If you intend on having your car be a reflection of who you are, then giving it a name that’s suitable to your personality is a good start!
  • Favorite features: What is it that you love so much about your car? Is it fast? Is it low? Fully loaded? Neons underneath? Thinking about why you love your car enough to name it can certainly help you come up with a good name!
  • Special features: The car likely has some kind of feature that is special about it, particularly if it is your project car. Whether you have a sweet hood scoop or a roaring exhaust system, you can look towards the special features for some inspiration.
  • License plate: If your license plate number contains words or letters that can be made out into a word, this can sometimes be helpful. Otherwise, many car owners will go on to name their car and then get a custom license plate with something indicating the name.

Now if you’re here looking for some badass car names, then read on because I have 101 of them!
