It’s no secret that a lot of people love their cars. But it seems some people really love their cars, and they do way more than just keep them clean and running smoothly.
A new survey finds that 60% of Americans consider their cars part of the family, with 56% saying they actually name their vehicles. As for how they pick those names, 42% name them after a prominent feature like the color or sound it makes, while 20% are inspired by movies, TV shows and songs, and 17% are inspired by famous cars or celebrities.
And like people are doing these days with baby names, many choose unique monikers for the four-wheeled member of their family. Some of the funniest names folks have given to their cars include:
The Bug Slayer
Baby Sweet Lil’ Kayden
Uriah (Note: “because it was a heap”)
