Do You Nickname Your Car? [POLL]

First off, let me say that I have never given a car a nickname, nor have I assigned one a gender. There is interesting research out this week on exactly who is nicknaming their cars and it might not be who you think.

According to a survey conducted for DMEAutomotive and reported by NBC News, women are more likely to name their vehicles than men, 23 percent to 18 percent and younger drivers are more likely than older drivers to give it a nickname at 40 percent for 18-24 year olds and 30 percent for 25-34 year olds.

The study also finds that almost half of car owners assign a gender to their car, with 88% of women saying their’s is a female. Meanwhile, 55% of the men who thought their car had a gender decided it was female. Finally, the most common names given to cars don’t seem all that common: “Baby” and “Betsy” tied for number one with 4%, followed by “Bessie”, “Black Beauty”, and Betty.

Do you nickname your car? Take our poll and tell us what its name is in the comment section below.
