Searching For More New Style Number Plates...
Matthew is a Biblical name meaning "gift of God", which is appropriate as it was one of the four Gospels. Today you might be more likely to see it shortened to Matt or Matty. You might recognise such famous Matthews as former Doctor Who actor Matt Smith, Matt LeBlanc who played Joey in Friends, star of the Bourne series of films Matt Damon, or Matt Groening who created The Simpsons. The name has been common place in the UK since Medieval times.
Perfect Matthew number plates are hard to come by because of the length of the name, and while possible the best one, M477 HEW, was actually issued to a car in 1994 and it would not have cost the owner a penny - how lucky, considering it is now on the market for over £35,000. Shortening the name to MAT opens up many options, though the best of these, 1 MAT, sold in 1992 for £11,000. Others use a "7" in place of the second "T", as in MAT 7S (Matt's?) which sold for £8,700 in 2006.
