October 2nd Name Your Car Day

Come on, you know it! Your car is one of your best friends, or worst enemies. Either way, doesn’t it deserve some sort of name? Generally, we want to name our cars something really powerful and strong, sometimes it’s some weak or expensive.


We tend to give names to things we use a lot. We also give them a sex. Well, they don’t have a sex so whoever called a car, boat or motorcycle she it really makes me wonder. But, to make them a male either is just as bad. Do you talk to your car? Do you actually think your car can hear you? Remember the old tv show “My Mother The Car”? Is it possible we come back as a car? I somehow doubt that.


Now if your car sucks up gas like it’s going out of style maybe a name like Bertha is appropriate. Or if it is really big and drives like a boat. However, I do not think the name Bertha is going to inspire your car to be better.

Maybe a name like Torchd will inspire it to go really fast. Or maybe it will make it burn through a tank of gas like a fire. Either way, it seems more likely your car will respond more confident if you name it something macho.


Or maybe you can give it a loving name, like Bambi or Love Bug. Just be creative. Naming your car John or Sue, Bob or Mary is not going to make it feel different than every car it meets on the road.

How to celebrate – Name your car today. Figure out the personality your car maintains. Be nice to your car so it will be nice to you.
