It’s a car! Get a life and find something important to concentrate on: World hunger, dirty water, abortion..., There are things so much more worthy of your concern, sympathy and good hearted ness.

Hi, do you know it's a sign of intelligence to give your car a name? Mine is Clive the Civic and I'm not young and daft (21 plus VAT!) I thought of Felix the Volkswagen (if you pronounce the V with a German F). But then I saw Mr Strudel and I thought "thread over". How about Apfel Strudel?
If we must take this forward, then the only other alternative is HERR STRUDEL but since the dude will be driving it in uk, I thought Mr. would be better, yk?
And the only way Apfel Strudel would have worked is if the car was red.
I don't make the rules ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hi Batter Mix,
Ok so it could be a very mouldy old apple...
But seriously the deadness of this thread makes me think OP has gone for Marco Polo...
I, am still seriously impressed with Mr Strudel. When Clive finally goes to car heaven I will deffo be calling my new car Mr Strudel!

I’m not a negative or pessimistic person at all. Simply, when you’re in age of having a car, your mind should be busy with other issues, relating to adulthood.
It’s good that you try keeping yourself occupied like you can, we just have completely opposite interests and views on life.
I have had a few that have been given names , I have the "Yellow Peril", a 1987 Scimitar SS1 whose name is apt as it is yellow and as it has spent most of its life in peril of living in the garage in pieces. (Edit-I did not actually give it this name, it came with the name from the previous owner when I bought it, given during the circa fourteen intervening years it has only managed about three on the road maybe I ought to have considered it as an omen when purchasing)
My late father had Adders, a car whose plate started ADS, a Ford Corsair. It is trickier these days to name cars by plate without an Irish plate, but we also have "Baby Hils", a Fiat 500 starting HIL, my wife;s name and my Sat Nav is called Hils2 as it has replaced Hils1 re navigation duties.
Anthropomorphization has been around for a long time, just consider ships and boats, we have no issue naming these.
