These are the UK's favourite car names

Today is international ‘Name Your Car Day’ – and car buying website Carwow.co.uk has surveyed 1,000 people to find out the most popular car names in Britain.

Bob took number one spot, also as the most popular choice amongst men, while Betsy was the number one car name for women.

Betty, Betsie and Bessie all proved to be common – possibly due to the 1978 film ‘The Betsy’ about the development of a fuel-efficient car of the same name.

Slightly more peculiar names chosen by respondents included Silver Dream Machine, Moby Dick and Mr Darcy. Others had more negative names for their motors, such as Loser Cruiser, Oink Oink and Costly.

Here are the top 10 most popular car names:

  1. Bob
  2. Betty
  3. Betsy
  4. Fred
  5. Bertha
  6. John
  7. Baby
  8. Bessie
  9. The Beast
  10. Harry
