The Best Nicknames For A Van

March 11, 2020 1.6k votes 217 voters 10.9k views51 items

This list of the best van nicknames is meant to help you pick out the most fitting moniker for your beloved set of wheels. There's a lot to consider when choosing a name for your van, such as the color, make, and model. The best van nicknames usually mean something special to you, but also describe the "personality" of your ride. 

Van owners take great pride in their vehicles, so this list of nicknames is meant to help you with a tough decision. Try giving your vintage Volkswagon a funny or cool nickname, like Vanna White or Puff, The Magic Wagon. If you have a more modest model, like a classic minivan, names like The Soccer Shuttle or The Tardis might be more fitting. Maybe you have a red (Red Wagon), silver (Van of Steel), or green (The Tank) van and want a nickname that fits the color as well. You should also consider the context with which you will be using these van names, for example you could be using a phrase like, "Let's take Van Morrison to work today."

Browse this list for van names that stand out to you, and vote up any you'd consider for your own.
