Do you have a name for your car?

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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”
