More Than Half of All People Name Their Car, Do You?
I'm probably the odd ball as I am in lots of situations but I have only named one car I have ever owned. While I love having transportation and the freedom to go places I guess I never think about it, and I don't even think I thought up the name when I did have a car with a name. One of my friends thought it up for me. Regardless, Toco Warranty just did a survey that shows 56% of all people have named their car.
The one car I did own that had a name was called "Club Lancer" because it was a Mitsubishi Lancer that probably had too much partying going on in there. Luckily I have matured since then. What about you, do you have a name for your vehicle?
Also revealed in the survey was that 20% of people name their car after a movie, TV show, or song. 17% have named a vehicle after a celebrity. 42% have named their car based on a color, 18% of people talk to their car daily (which I guess is easier if it has a name). Lastly, 63% of people have encouraged their car at one point or another, which I will admit I encourage my car to warm up if it's freezing.
Some of the funniest names owners have given to their vehicles:
- The Bug Slayer
- Earth Mover
- Baby Sweet Lil’ Kayden
- Fancy Jenny
- Grease Lightning
- Uriah (Note: “because it was a heap”)
- Lil’ Speedz
- Miss Tigglywinkle
- Muscle boy
- Optimus Punto
- Professor Yaffle
Okay, now what do you call your car, truck or SUV?
