I am a firm believer that when you give your car a name, it gives it more of a personal connection with it. You feel more connected when you drive it, clean it, and maintain it.

I’ve always been a traditionalist with old school names with my Dodge vehicles (Christine, Dorothy, etc). I decided to call our new ride Nyoko which is Japanese for gem or treasure.

Let’s hear some of those names :)

I think I'm going to call our 2020 XSE "El Cheapo". I'm slowly begining to lose my patience and dislike it since Toyota refused to fix the cheap, flimsy rear hatch hinges problem which I will end up paying out of my own pockets.
I've already started looking to replace it with... maybe a Lexus "UX"?...

Mine is a 2012 in that red color, I forget the name - Barcelona maybe. I called her Rosie, here is why: my grandmother died in 2009. She had told my mom to give me money after her house was sold, which my mom did. I then bought a Mercury Mariner which ended up being a TOTAL LEMON...a year or so later after yet another problem, I traded it in and got the Rav4. My grandmother's name was Rose. Thus...Rosie!

Of all the vehicles I’ve owned I never named them. Until i bought my 2020 then I named it money maker kinda as a joke because I use it as my work vehicle. My wife has a 22 sienna and she calls it mommy van. We have them names this way in the app as well.

I call my Prime SE "The Hen". This is partly because I purchased early when they were "rare as hen's teeth."

Our super sonic red R4P is "Ruby". Our 2011 Prius is "Henry T. Hybrid" but prefers to just go by Henry.

as in the other post, 1 of the members here & 2 of my neighbours have randomly call my Rav 4 - "stormtrooper" (star wars) mostly because of the stripes on the hood and the nudge bar...seems to be a popular choice for those with a white Rav 4 with black trim, so "stormtrooper' it is...(i might have to get a decal printed) :p cheers

My white 2022 is named Luke. My friend was looking straight on and said “it looks like a storm trooper helmet”. First thing that went through my head was “it’s a little small for a storm trooper”. Luke, I’m naming him Luke.
