Race Car Names List

Racing / November 5, 2019

Getting behind the wheel of a car, for some, means assuming a whole new personality as if it were some kind of subconscious alter ego. While it’s important to maintain safety on the road, some people cannot help but to feel like a whole different person, seemingly invincible.

We’ve all seen that guy who likes to weave in and out of traffic, only to be stopped at the very same red light right next to you. As he edges forward so as not to make eye contact, you see a giant decal on the back of his window indicating the name of his car: Invincible. He would name his car that, wouldn't he?

Naming Your Car

Naming a car, in a sense, gives it a personality; it’s a way for an owner to form some kind of bond with their vehicle and feel a greater sense of ownership. Not only that, but it can also influence the personality of the owner on the road, as if they have some kind of name to live up to themselves.

There’s many ways that people choose to name their car. Naming a car has become trendy, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing! Some people choose to name their car after them, while others will look to the maker of the car for some ideas. Other people like to take colors into consideration when naming their car. Whatever way you choose to name your car, there’s some other things to be considered:

  • Car type: The type of car you have can really give you a few obvious suggestions on names. Whether it’s a fast car, a large car, an old car, and so on, you can find something about it that helps to name it!
  • Length of name: If you plan on plastering the car’s name all over it, or even just on a window, you’ll want to be sure that it is short enough to where your decals can be big enough to be read on the road!
  • Your own personality: Fun and quirky, easygoing and laidback? Looking deep into your own personality can help generate a few names. This can be your general personality or your personality on the road, if different. (Rage much?)
  • What the car “looks” like: Some people can simply look at their car and be like “I think she looks like a Sally! Ride, sally, ride!” and a name is born.

Now that we got into all that, I’m leaning towards naming cars by color, which has become quite a common and fun way to go about it all! Here is the largest list of car names, sorted by color, to help you name your new baby!

Naming your car is a fun time! You’ll likely be spending a lot of time in it, and perhaps have many, many happy years together. If you happen to have a car of multiple colors, you can choose to use the more dominant color or think of things that are also of the same colors.
