It could be interesting to break down and think about the composition of a vehicle name. With so many different vehicles roaming the streets these days, it can be difficult to come up with a name that suits their purposes. When we start to think of it from the viewpoint of a manufacturer, we can see the struggle.

After all, they want to come up with something that’s catchy. However, the name should somehow allude to what the vehicle is all about. To illustrate its importance, just imagine swapping nameplates on cars. We don’t think that a pickup truck would sell very much if called a Beetle, for example. However, the Volkswagen Beetle is a car that has sold well over the decades.

The name could be a big point to end up selling a car. After all, if something has a dorky name, there’s a chance that nobody’s going to buy it, no matter how great it is.

In order to seek out inspiration, many have looked toward nature. Perhaps an animal has inspired the name of a wide variety of automobiles. In fact, some have even turned toward mythical animals in order to come up with names that make a vehicle seem like something really special.

At the end of the day, a name has to come from somewhere. This time, we check in with a variety of cars that were named after animals whether wild or mythical. From the Shelby Cobra to the Chevrolet Impala, some of these names have really become cemented in culture as we know it. Just think about how weird it might be if some of these vehicles ended up being named something else.

After heading through the rundown of this list, which vehicle do you think has become the most iconic that is named after an animal? There are definitely a couple that really stand out from the bunch. – Viral Vehicles.
