Do you have a name for your car? According to a new survey done by car insurance company Nationwide, you’re not alone if you do.

Just this past Oct. 2 was “National Name Your Car Day,” so Nationwide Insurance conducted a poll of over 1,000 car owners to find out just how popular giving a name to your car really was. They discovered that not only was it normal for many car owners to give their cars a nickname of some kind, but that 31 percent of those polled settled on a name inspired by the car’s color and appearance.

The Nationwide online survey uncovered other interesting facts about car owners and car names. Read the results per businesswire below:

Car owners ages 18-34 are significantly more likely to nickname their cars (36 percent).

Women are more likely to have a nickname for their cars than men (27 percent vs. 17 percent).

More than one-fourth (26 percent) of those surveyed think of their car as a girl, with women more likely to have a “baby” girl.

Men are more likely than women to name their car after a famous/historical person (9 percent men vs. 4 percent women) or character in a movie (10 percent men vs. 4 percent women).

So do you have a nickname for your car? Tell us what you named your car in the comments below!
