One in Four People Name Their Car
No matter if it's your first car or your current car, each vehicle that you've owned has a set of memories and emotions attached to it. Your very first car is the vehicle that might not have looked its best, but you and your friends didn't really care––you had a car and that's all that mattered. When that car finally took its last ride, you moved on to your next vehicle, which may or may not have been the vehicle that you took your newborn home from the hospital in.
A survey conducted by Nationwide Insurance polled 1,082 U.S. car owners and discovered 25% of people give their vehicles a name. Of that 25%, 31% said they were inspired by the vehicle's color and appearance.
The poll also revealed that 36% of car owners between the ages of 18 and 34 are more likely to nickname their cars, and women more so than men. Men who name their vehicles are prone to naming their car after a famous or historical person or a character in a movie.
For the women that nicknamed their vehicles, one out of every four thought of their car as a girl. Two very famous examples of "girl" vehicles are Eleanor––from the film Gone in 60 Seconds––and Christine––from the movie Christine.
