Introduction

Choosing the right name for your new canine companion can be a challenging task, especially since you may have just met them and many people pick names for their pets that are based on a subject that they love. Since the automobile was first introduced in the late 1800s it has stirred our imaginations and given us a sense of security and freedom. Our dogs can stir our imaginations as well and through their service work, military, rescue efforts, and general companionship they also give us greater security and freedom. Names inspired by cars and trucks can be employed for most any canine as the variety of names can run the gamut from elegant, to tough, to straight out silly.

Car Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Automobiles can inspire a large number and variety of excellent names for dogs, using inspiration like makes and models of cars, specific car parts, slang terms, and even names of famous racecar drivers or the designers and producers of iconic automobiles. The name you choose is likely to depend a great deal on the dog that you are naming and on your preferred focus when it comes to cars. Many of the names on the list lend themselves to a certain type of personality or specific talent, a name like Hot Rod, Torpedo, or Drift might allude to your dogs power and speed while a name like Phantom or Sleeper might be more appropriate for the dog whose particularly good at being unobtrusive. Dogs that are good at solving puzzles or have unique ways of thinking might find a good fit in names like Citroen, Tesla, or Stella. The name you ultimately pick may change, depending on your automotive focus; names like Aston, Romero, Bentley, or Shelby may appeal to the collector, Danica, Stratos, or Red to the NASCAR fan, or names like Chassis, Piston, Axle, or even Lugnut to the person who prefers to build and fix cars.
