Auto-Inspired Names for Girls

Whether you're a NASCAR fan or luxury vehicle enthusiast, checking out lists of cars and drivers is an excellent way to find a one-of-a-kind name for your daughter. Racing has long been associated with competitiveness, speed, and agility. If these are qualities you'd like your child to have, then give her a head start by choosing a famous driver's name, such as Danica. On the other hand, if you're dreaming of a life of comfort for your baby girl, then consider a prestigious name, such as Lexus.
