Anyone who’s seen John Carpenter’s Christine knows the dangers posed by cars with names, yet some auto enthusiasts do it anyway. Are you one of them?
Some of you may balk at the idea — even the greatest of cars is an inanimate object and not a living being, after all — while others among you are probably so fond of the vehicle that gets you from point A to point B that you consider it part of the family. There’s also a decent chance you’ve never thought about it all, in which case there’s much to consider. Would you go with a familiar human name or something more auto-appropriate like Rusty? Most ships have names, after all, and what is a car if not an earthbound boat that ferries us across land?
