October 2nd is Name Your Car Day, a day dedicated just to naming your car. A car can be just an object to some, but if it weren’t for it how would you get to work? How would you go shopping? How would you visit friends? Life isn’t unliveable without a car, but they can make daily tasks just that little bit easier. And hey, people name their boats all the time so why do we forget about our cars? Obviously, the best way to celebrate today is to name your car, so here’s some ways to come up with a super original and fun name for your car!
Using the letters in your number plate is an easy way to create a unique name for your car. Not only is this a super simple way to think of a name for your car, but it’s also a great reminder for remembering what your number plate is, handy when paying for parking!
Think about the personality of your car, what does it look like? Is it a classic car? Maybe it’s a sporty car? These are all things to be considered when thinking of names for your car. And consider your own personality too, there no point calling your car speedy or lightning when you’re known for driving like a grandma.
Are you a big sports fan? Love a certain artist? A movie fanatic? Or a bookworm? You can use these interests to inspire a name for your car or even use a fictional character’s name to inspire you. If you’re known for always making up puns and rhymes, you could use this to inspire your name too.
Naming your car might not be for you, but it is proven that when we name inanimate objects, like our cars, we assign, almost human-like attributes that make us feel more in control, safer and the car seem more intelligent. So, give your car some TLC and create a name for it, after all, today is the day to do it.
