Many people choose to give their new car a nickname, whether to feel an instant connection or in a satirical way. However, it can be difficult to pick a name that is on trend when selecting an alias for your model.
This is why we've compiled a list of the top five best names to call your new car at the moment:
The first on our list is an undeniable classic. The Back to the Future films gave us so many things; time travel, cool catchphrases and, of course, the Delorean. It is one of the most awesome cars of all time and is a worthy nickname for any new car. I mean if it's good enough for Marty McFly then it's good enough to be a namesake for your new Jaguar, Peugeot or Audi.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have successfully made the greatest detective of all time cool again – and without a deerstalker hat in sight. The latest TV adaptation of the classic stories has seen a whole new generation fall in love with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's creation from the 1880s.
Although Sherlock Holmes may not always have a winning personality, and definitely lacks some essential people skills, he is still manages to solve the crime and is incredibly cool in his own unapologetic way.
HBO series Breaking Bad has seen a lot of traditional American names come back into popularity over the pond but Walt or Walter is the main character in the show, making him the coolest. If you are a fan of the show, Walter White is an obvious and solid choice to name your car – though starting your own drug ring is not recommended.
The Avengers movies have seen a lot of characters gain a cult kind of following. However, the unexpected hero of the bunch is Thor's brother Loki. The god of mischief has become surprisingly popular, and for comic book geeks, Loki is one of the more respectable choices.
Before the Avengers films, there was the X-Men franchise, which gave us a number of cool characters. While Storm, Wolverine and Nightcrawler would all be respectable namesakes, Professor X or Charles Xavier is the leader of the pack. I mean he can control things with his mind – what more do you want?
