October 2nd is Name Your Car Day!
Have you christened your car or truck with a name? Every vehicle has its own character and story and has the potential for a unique moniker. This post is dedicated to my own little girl, Mrs. Miagi. She is a silver 1998 Honda Civic hatchback that has been with me through it all. She was my first car outside of a shared family vehicle I drove when I first started out and I am as in love with her today as I was the day we drove brand-new off the lot thirteen years ago. I know, I know. She’s a car. There’s absolutely no need to wax poetic over a hunk of metal, but why not?
If you haven’t already given your set of wheels a name, why not do so today on October 2nd to celebrate Name Your Car Day? You can start with what gender your automobile represents. My little hatchback was clearly an adorable, petite female. (She is also always reliable, which obviously makes her a woman). Your monster 4X4 truck may call for a more masculine title. Then you can get creative.
Some people know the name of their car upon first sight, while some prefer to spend time with their wheels to find the perfect name. Do you have a sleek black Knight Rider? Or do you own a sweet, adorable Herbie? Heck, you might be channeling your inner Austin Powers and own a full-on Shaguar. Only you can choose the perfect name. If you are having some trouble naming your own vehicle, a quick web search found this clever name generator at Confused.com (http://www.confused.com/car-name-generator). Just fill in the requested fields and you can generate your car’s very own name and Birth Certificate!
I’m looking forward to hearing what names you have bestowed upon your wheels. Drop me a comment and let me know!
Happy Name Your Car Day, Mrs. Miagi!
