My Mini’s a Marvin... What’s yours called?
The world’s first Mini census has taken place revealing the most popular names for the car.
Marvin is the most popular name, with the survey, carried out by the organisers of MiniWorld Live, further revealing that 51% of Minis are male, 35% are female and 14% are neither. Popular names include Tommy (Cooper) and Jack, with a number called Dave, Stuart and Bob.
The most popular name for female Minis includes Minnie, Mollie, and Millie. More interesting names include Pingu, ‘due to being white with a black roof’, and Tetleys, because ‘he has more holes in him than a tea bag’.
Responses came from all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Malta and the USA. Participants ranged from 17 to 80 years of age.
MiniWorld Live takes place at Rockingham Motor Speedway, Northants, on Sunday 10 July.
