Giving a car a name
Does anyone else’s other half insisted on naming their car?
Recently my wife has owned:-
Mini Cooper – Matilda
Golf TDI – Cladia Van Tiesel (German diesel)
Golf 4 motion – Heidi (German mountain climber)
We now have the dilemma of an Audi A4 replacing the Mini, and she is stuck for a name. I suggested Adolf but it didn’t go down very well. Any suggestions?Posted 5 years agostoxMember
The wife’s family do this. Always have it appears.
So now, it seems I do too
So we have :
Fabia vrs – Cedric (after Cedric Daniels from The Wire)
Signum – Freud (didn’t take long to come up with that one!)
I actually use the names now so I can’t really moan about it!!! 🙂Posted 5 years agoKing-ocelotMember
My dad had a big cortina estate when I was a lad, it was named goldie by my sister. You never see many gold cars now, which is a shame, its all moody hues of blues and grey through to black.
My car is called Shark after my nephew (3) decided it looked like a shark,
Fiancée’s is called vixen due to numberplate
Fiancée’s company car is called the big blue, golf Bluemotion.
On reflection it does seem a little sad to name cars.Posted 5 years agomattbeeSubscriber
Not wife but at work we have:Posted 5 years ago
Dora (Ford Explorer) Brad (Snatch Landrover)
Walter (as in Mitty, WMIK Landrover which was built on a civvy chassis so not a ‘real’ WMIK.)
My T5 has been named in rather poor taste ‘The Miley Cyrus tour bus’ after local reports of someone trying to get kids into a van which matched the description of mine…..andrewhMember
I don’t like naming things as then you get attached to them and sad when they stop working.Posted 5 years ago
However, in order to tell what you are refering to names just deveop sometimes. I’ve had:
The Tardia (Proton Persona, surprisingly large boot)
The Rustbucket (Peugeot 306)
The Repmobile (Mondeo, which the other half tried to call Percy)
The Toyota (Corrolla)
The Hyundai (Trajet)
The Van (Transit)King-ocelotMember

A mate of mine, mid 40’s ex army built like a tank macho kind of bloke names all his cars, things like billy, Mikey, tommy he gets proper attached to them too and talks about them like they are a pet. Very odd considering his personality in general.
