Names or words on number plates?

When you decide to buy your dream registration, do you prefer your name on it, your family name, name of your hometown, or perhaps a funny word to get a larger audience staring. Quality name number plates often get snapped up within seconds whether in auction or when they are released, this is because the demand for them is high as the buyer wants to be the only one who has his/her name on a number plate, especially if their name is common.

Custom number plates which read a name are not always a valuable asset as this could depend on the name popularity and how the number plates spell the name. The rich and famous like to have initials on their custom number plates, this often costs more because many people will have the same initials. Having initials on custom number plates are often small combination therefore easy to remember and take little room on the physical number plates themselves. 

Many people do not like to display their name or initials on their custom number plates, however they do like to hide their cars  age and opt to buy number plates that read a word. Having words on custom number plates can often mean something to a wider group of people. Take a number plate like 'BOX 3R' from the UK as an example, which is owned by a boxer, but is wanted by other boxers because they love what they do.
