About 25% of car owners in the U.S. love their vehicles enough to give them names, says Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.

People under the age of 35 are the most likely to bestow a moniker upon their cars, and women are more likely than men to do so, according to the online poll of about 1,100 drivers.

Roughly three-in four car namers consider their vehicles male. Men are more prone than women to come up with a name inspired by a famous or historical person.
