How to name your car

Before we dive into our list of nicknames, we want to share some secrets for car-naming greatness. Here are a few expert tips to remember:
  • Enjoy the ride: Whether you want a hilarious name for your car or a cringe-inducing nickname that will make your friends groan each time they hear it, the process should be a ton of fun.
  • Unleash your creativity: It’s your car, after all—so don’t hold back! If you’ve got an inside joke with your car and want to name it Moondust Mike or The Spoon Raider, don’t let anybody stop you.
  • Use your intuition: Sometimes, the perfect name just comes to you. If you look at your car one morning and the name Sterling pops into your head, you’re in luck, because you’ve just found the official name for your sweet new ride.
Finally, you should take into account the gender of your car. Some people just know that their car is female, others get an undeniably manly vibe from their car. Still others think that cars are just cars, and they’d be thrilled to dub their car something gender-neutral, like Silver Fox.
Whichever way you’re leaning, we’ve got you covered. Without further ado, here’s our list of the best masculine, feminine, and gender-neutral grey car names.

The best masculine grey car names

Say you just rolled off the lot in a carbonized grey
Ford F-150
or a charcoal grey
Cadillac CTS
and you need a masculine name to match it. Give these a try:
  • Gandalf (if you switch to a white car, you can keep the same name!)
  • Sterling
  • Mercury
  • Silver Surfer
  • Shark Boy
  • Iron Man
  • Iron Knight
  • The Iron Giant (give your car a “you stay, I go, no following…” each time you park it)
  • Ash
  • Moondust Mike
  • Gunmetal Greg
  • Flint Lockwood
  • M.C. Hammer
  • Mjölnir (only if you’re worthy)

The best feminine grey car names

On the other hand, maybe you’re driving a grey
Honda Civic
or a luxurious
BMW 330i
and you want something a little more feminine. Go for:
  • Mist
  • Luna
  • Storm
  • Moonglow
  • Athena (or, to get fancy, the Grey-Eyed Goddess)
  • Shadow
  • Shimmer
  • Artemis (turns out, there are plenty of great Greek grey names)
  • Selene
  • Skylar Grey

The best gender-neutral grey car names

Finally, if you’re content to leave gender out of the equation, here’s a list of funny, wacky, and weird nicknames that could give you that extra burst of inspiration:
  • Wolfie
  • Quicksilver
  • Stratus
  • Humpback (especially good if your car’s a hatchback)
  • Smokey
  • Dolphin (or Flipper, for a throwback)
  • Whiskers
  • Grey Goose
  • The Great Stone Dragon (ideally, bellowed in Mushu’s voice)
  • Koala (or Carwala)
  • The Spoon Raider
  • Glacier Bear
  • Belugalino
