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.

Karma. My old car was named Karma for good reason. The van doesn’t have a name…
My mini-van was named Smith W. Jones (but I just called him Smith). My mom’s van is named Jersey.
the first car i ever bought was the Pinto that ate Cleveland. it was followed by the Demon Dodge.
of our current cars, only my Husband’s 4-seater has a real name: Rexy. mine is simply The Cat.
My H3 has been named “Hank The Tank” by my friends. It’s very fitting since my tags read “H3 Girl” which I took from the movie “Tank Girl”
