    I decided to name my desktop Sheila and laptop Rhoda. I literally named them that in the system. My cell phone is Clive and my Xbox is Xander. They're my bitches. My car is Lemon icon_smile.gif

    Oh you mean like calling a volleyball "Wilson?" My answer is no. I'd rather give names to people I don't know. It's much more fun!

    My camera is Jackson, my Wii is Genevieve, my PS3 is Charlotte, my teddy bear is Samson.
    I don't have a name for either of my computers or my cell phone yet. Maybe I'll name my cell phone Clark.

    I've never understood anthropomorphizing objects by assignation of names. I've never had the inclination to do it.

    Actually, as an author, I tend to name some of my technology, due to the fact I work with them so often. My netbook is Digby; my desktop is Clem. My voice recorder is Stanley. My truck is Zero.

    My green Kia:Soul however, has tried to kill me twice. I now refer to it as the Meat Cleaver.

    Peace,
    Bardy

    Nor I. I don't even give my dick a name, not uncommon with men, and it's far from inanimate. icon_wink.gif

    My University of Virginia piggy bank is named Henry, yet I've always had trouble naming actual living pets.

    I have a stuffed dead bird I found in a garbage pile at work. I placed him in my flower pot and named him Confucius.

    Absolutely!
    Have always named my vehicles.
    My FX50 is named Boss
    My Ducati is named Bitch
    My poor little 2009 Z4 Roadster was named Pupster. (Killed by Super Mega-beotch Sandy)

    Come to think of it, our family always named our houses. The house I'm living in now in VA is called The Perry B. They've always named them in honor of some long dead male relative. icon_rolleyes.gif

    icon_neutral.gif I guess I went through a phase of that in high school. Or maybe it was the then-girlfriend who actually did it.

    Now... only the boats. And the autopilot gets its own name of course, because you have to have someone to blame. As in "Otto, WTF are you trying to do to us now?"

    I "stole" an Energizer Bunny from a battery display at a hardware store. I named him Phillip.

    I named my dragon kite Trogdor.

    I call my car Ke$ha. It's a bit tired, perpetually dirty looking, and not particularly special or attractive, but it keeps on truckin'.

    When I was younger our family car was a bright red Tahoe, and it somehow got nicknamed "The Taco".

    My Satnav gets called Mildred (It's Trafficmaster so has a real person behind it when needed) - must say I thought everyone named their SatNavs !

    One old car is called Daisy (As in driving Miss Daisy)

    There used to be a sort of little robot in my kitchen controling hot water in the appartment when I lived in Japan.She was a girl so we named her Pamela. She was so annoying, talking alone in the kitchen : "suidousen wo akete kudasai".
    I also gave names to the insects that lived in my house. I was too scared to kill them, so I'd rather give them names and be their friend.

    I used to play with insects. I named one Steve and played with him till I smashed him. Then I move on to Carl, which I also ended up smashing. I'm careless. icon_neutral.gif
