Top 10 car nicknames revealed, did yours make the list?
AN RACQ survey has revealed the most popular names young drivers give to their car, with 'Kermit' topping the list.
RACQ's Lauren Ritchie said almost half of surveyed drivers aged 16 to 24 admitted to naming their cars, with women the most likely to personalise their ride.
"Many people have a special connection to their car, especially their first one. So we're not surprised many drivers give them a nickname," Ms Ritchie said.
"Some of the results are quite creative but many of the nicknames are inspired by the car itself, particularly the colour or model."
Ms Ritchie said some of the popular names included the Beast, Rosie, Bluey and Dory.
"One of the most frequently named cars is the Hyundai Getz," she said.
"That's not all that surprising though, with the Getz being a very common car for first-time drivers."

Ms Ritchie encouraged drivers who loved their cars to treat them with respect.
"If you love your car enough to name it, make sure you care enough to keep it clean, regularly serviced and topped up with fuel."
