As part of international Name Your Car Day, carwow (www.carwow.co.uk) ""“ the site for Britain's new-car buyers ""“ has conducted a national survey of 1000 people to find the most popular car names. Bob came out on top, and was also the most picked name by men, while Betty topped the poll for women.

Bob is the most popular name in all age groups from 18-44, but in the 45-54-year-old age group Herbie grabs the top spot. Clearly those born from 1970 onwards have fond memories of the Volkswagen Beetle from the Herbie films of the late 1960s, ""˜70s and ""˜80s.


And popular culture plays a part in another of our top car names: Betsy is at number three, having been made popular in the 1978 film ""˜The Betsy' about development of a fuel-efficient car of the same name. The popularity of Betty and Bessie is also likely linked to the film.

Not normally, however I do call my B-Max 'Meka', as it is formed from most of the letters on the numberplate.
I only ever previously named my first car (mk2 Escort) 'Obi-wan', as it had OBW in the numberplate and also because of being a big Star Wars fan

The missus is more 'conventional' with her car names. Our old Astra was 'Cedric' and her current car (Qashqai) is 'Timothy'.

...... I'll get me coat!
