This is really embarassing, but I have a subaru that I call subie.  Not only is it short for subaru, I decided to give it a real name, so it is also short of Susan Beatrice.  So yes, I named my car Susan Beatrice.

My last car was a Hyundai Tiburon named Tibby, and my current car is a Mazda2 named Pip.

ETA: My cars have always been boys.

I just asked my husband what he thinks my car’s name looks like and he said Betty. I asked why, and he said because your car is white like Betty White.

My little Red Beetle Convertible is named “Breanna or just Bre” for short 🙂

I decided to stick with B’s since a friend named my first car Bianca.

I had a ’89 CRX and I called it “The little engine that could!”, she was blue and always went a little slow up hills but she always got me from A to B. I haven’t named DH’s car.

I call my Hyundai Elantra Ellie. I named my last car a boy’s name and it was the most unreliable car ever. So from now on, all my cars will be girls.

I don’t have a name for my black Jeep Liberty – maybe “Libby” LOL… so creative, right?!?

 

But my old car that I drove since I first got my license – I named her “Goldie” and she was a gold Pontiac Sunfire. I had her up until November of last year – we had lots of good memories! 😉

@Mrs.LetsGoPens:  My mom’s Subaru’s name is Ruby too, but that’s because hers is red!

I have a Hyundai Elantra named Rochelle (got it right after I studied abroad in La Rochelle, France and she is blue like the ocean).  I call her Rocky. 

@kybride2012:  LOL!

I call our car Persephone because I was taking a Roman history class at the time we bought it, I heard that name for the first time, and I loved it. Now it just seems to “fit”. Darling Husband is reluctant to humor my tendency to name inanimate objects.

I’ve never named any of my cars. 

Why do y’all do this?  Lol . . .

My cousin has always named her cars.  I think her current one is named Bessie.
