A survey of 1,000 motorists in the UK revealed that about a third had given their car a name.
The most popular vehicular monikers were Betsy, Baby, Betty, Ruby* and Susie.
Some of the more interesting names included Mr. Aubergine McRalph, Fizzy Pop, Henry McHaggis and Kim Jong-Il.
My family once owned a Mercury Marquis named Ruthie, in honor of my Dad’s aunt.
What about you — does your car have a name?
*Ruby also happens to be the 2nd most popular baby name in England and Wales right now, after Grace.
UPDATE: Here’s a very long list of names people have given their cars.
