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!

Please help me understand why people call inanimate objects personal names as I really do not understand! A car is a car it will be the "the car" or the "effin car" if it is not working! I can understand puggy as that is shorter and easier to say peugeot (partner has a puggy)

Our current car is "That Rattly Creaky Piece of S**t, I Told You We Shouldn't Buy It". I'm not sure if that's anthropomorphised, or simply proving your point 😆

Pug is shorter than Puggy.

I don't understand why people would give affectionate names to their car either. Did you ever see the Louis Theroux program about "car lovers" in America? There were people literally having a fluid exchanging relationship with theirs and other people's cars.
