My first car was a 1965 red Beetle. Initially my father's, it got passed down to me and then to my brother-in-law. My father named it Billy Beetle and the name stuck.

Since then I have never felt the urge to name any of my cars, until now. The new car seems to have a personality, more so than any car I've owned since the Beetle.

My ID.3 is called Heidi Flowerpot (I'm using the name as my screen name on here). Heidi, I know not very original, but a no-brainer considering the car is an ID.3. And Flowerpot because the terracotta dashboard insert on my car is the colour of a flowerpot.

My great-grand-children think it's great that she has a name.

Has anyone else named their car? How many of us now have a car called Heidi? Any other names?

Incidentally, the voice recognition can't tell the difference between the wake-up phrase 'Hello ID' and 'Hello Heidi' which pleases me. I'm easily pleased...

My wife calls mine the milk float, then I threaten her with not being able to drive it and she goes quiet...

Not into naming cars but the app insisted on a name.

So went really original and decided on Evie 😂

Which TBH is what we call our cars anyway “Superb, Leaf, BM” you get the idea.

I've yet to collect, but the car is already named Johnny. When I went to order, I was waiting for the car to go out for a test drive and as it slowly approached me, the noise it made took me instantly to Total Recall and Johnny Cab.

Initially ours was called 'Edie Whizzard' but these days it's just 'The whizzy car'.

I call mine the Grey One 😂
My wife has no interest in cars apart from seat heaters in winter so when she asks "what car are we going out in" as we leave the house I reply with either the Grey One or the Blue One. Both fortunately have seat heating!
If I say the Blue One with the roof down the response is generally
"I have just done my hair, can we keep the roof up" 😄

I haven't named the car itself, but I DO have a name for the "Hello ID" lady.

Unfortunately I don't think this forum is a suitable place to mention it!
