Ten of the best names from Greek mythology to help you name your next car lease
With headlights that seem to wink at you, a grille that could almost be smiling (or frowning), and a unique way of driving, every car on the road has a distinct personality.
Anyone who is a fan of the Cars movies - and who isn't a fan of Lightning McQueen - knows that not only does a car's 'face' match its personality, but the name needs to as well. Mater wouldn't be Mater without the name to go with his distinctive toothy looks and goofy personality.
And when it comes to the most important bit of car leasing - naming the vehicle - there are so many directions you could go in.
You could try alliteration - Pete the Peugeot works nicely, as does Jessica (Honda) Jazz. A smaller, older car might suit a name like Doris or Betty, while a big ol' monster truck needs a strong name to match. Like Bruce. Or Crusher.
The licence plate might spark some inspiration (a licence plate ending SAL would lend itself quite nicely to the name Sally), or you could dive deep into your favourite TV shows. Game of Thrones is particularly good for those fantasy names - Jon Snow for a white car, Arya for a car that holds a grudge - while cult classics like Stranger Things could provide inspo if your car is a little more on the retro side.
You could even look to the past if history is your kind of thing. You can almost guarantee that no one else will have a car named Cynethryth or Athelstan. King Athelstan, if you're feeling regal.
And one of the best places to look for car name inspiration? Greek mythology.
There's not only an abundance of names to choose from, but there are names for every car personality, type, make, and model you could think of, from budget city cars right up to luxury saloons.
