Like the title says, when you buy a car, do you give it a name? I know it's anthropomorphizing a machine, but my husband's family did that with their cars to make it easier to tell the kids which car to get into when they were going somewhere. When I married him, I kind of picked up the habit. So every car we've ever owned had a name attached to it. My Rav4 is my screen name, Miku which means "Blue Sky" in Japanese names and it's a nod to it's Blue Flame color. The FJ Cruiser is called Kaiju, which means "Strange Beast". It's Japanese, green and strange looking, so it's apt.
