Many of us have called our cars by a nickname at some point, perhaps inspired the vehicles colour like ‘Big Red’, or even it’s condition like ‘Rusty Piece of S**t’. But it’s difficult to know what the most common nicknames are, and that’s when we need some organisation to run a meaningless survey in a bid for publicity. On this occasion British vehicle check company HPI has obliged with a new study which notes that fully 50% of its customers give their cars a nickname, with 40% female names, 27% male names and 33% everything else.

In the recent study, Bessey took top honours as the most popular car nickname. There were plenty of semi-predictable names on the list like Speedie, Beauty and the Love Machine, but there were a couple of oddball finalists, as well. You have to wonder who are all these people that name their vehicle Boomzilla. Check out the full list below.
