I can still remember the very first car my dad owned from when I was a child. It was a very battered Vauxhall Viva that seemed to be held together by fumes and was an old banger to say the least. But it was loved, very loved, and it had a name, we all called ‘her’ Bessie.
Since then my dad has had many cars, all of which have had a name, the latest being Jazz. But funnily enough, in my own life we own both a car and a van and neither of them have been ‘christened’ with a name. Which now seems a little sad, because all the best cars do have their own name. Consider the evidence.
Co-op Insurance has produced a fun, light-headed tool that can help you find the perfect name for your wheels. The ‘Name your Ride’ app transports you to the perfect name for your car based on your answers to a series of questions. These include whether you think your car is male or female and what decade your car was manufactured in. At the end of the questions, you are presented with the perfect name for your car in the form of a cute online personalised number plate.
I took the test for our car, a much loved, sleek and shiny BMW. I decided that the car is female, added details on when she was manufactured and how we see her, and was then presented with a personalised registration plate. The name of our car…wait for it…
I have to say I love it, it’s sassy and fun and totally suits our car. I will be referring to the car as Whoopi from now on, although I’m guessing that the hubby would insist the car was actually male.
Why not have a look and find out what your car would be called?
