Do you name your things? and how'd you come up with the name?

for me i name the things i have that ive grown attached to or use the most often, i named my bike Bessy, my pink DS Lite Kurumi (after Kurumi from Steel angel Kurumi), my first cell phone before it died was Sumomo and my second cell's name is Kotoko (both named from chobits), my PS2 is Pyokola cause it was a REAL pain to find games for it since it was Xmas weekend....

I only name my plush toys. Like I have a Pikachu plush I named Sparky. But I don't name anything else

I don't name my things. Well I named my teddy's when I was younger and I still call them by name.

If I get attached to something, usually I name them after anime characters.

But I won't name my consoles, what kinda name would suit a PS3..?

February 18th, 2008, 5:36 AM
i dont name my things anymore. i used to name everything. now ive forgotten all the names ive used.

I used to name my plush toys (with completely random, and uncreative names), but not anymore.

-hugs Fluffy the rabbit toy- o_o

And other than said toys, I don't think I've ever named any of my other personal belongings.

Only plush toys I name.. I haven't nicknamed any machinery yet. XD
The names are strange and very animal-like, but I love the names anyway. I have LOTS of plush toys, but I know the names of all of them. That's how dedicated I was to them. XD

I named my iPod "Scarlet Thunder presents the deathPod II. So, yeah... I go crazy with names. >.<

(For the record, though, the orignal deathPod was my old Creative Zen V. XD)

Just the things that need to be named, like my stuffed animals, I don't take much time on naming them though, one of my Teddy bear's name is Little Teddy, aren't I creative? XD

February 18th, 2008, 9:26 AM
I name things I'm really attached to actually. Like my DS Lite is named Rodger, my laptop Toby, and my Sansa MP3 player Cherri. That is pretty srange I guess... XD;

I'm really close to my 80 GB ipod, but I never named it, I'm VERY close to my computer, I never named it, I think it's kind of a waste of the time out of your day, or of course maybe I'm just too lazy. >.<

I've never named an inanimate object. XD; Some of the replies in this thread seriously made me laugh though. deathPod. >_>;

I think I'll try naming my laptop, now. Hm..

I named my diary Kip.

And I think all of my shirts have personalities. .u. It's true.

I talk to all of my things a lot though lul. I talk to my shirts and my stuffed animals and my fish tank and my laptop and my DS.

It's always fun to name things... I call my iPod "Blue" and my car's name is Champagne Dave - The Awesome Mobile. It was a huge inside joke between my friends and I.

I've never gotten anything important enough to name. However, if I were to suddenly get a car, I'd probabaly name it.

February 18th, 2008, 2:29 PM
I forgot to mention that I've named my laptop Toshio and my cellphone "the cellPod" xDD;

February 18th, 2008, 4:35 PM
Not usually.
I call my headphones Bose, my tissues Kleenex, my history book Amsco, and my Ipod Ippy.

Only when I'm uber bored. I think I only named my computer and it's name is Mr. Stupidhead. XD

February 18th, 2008, 4:53 PM
Nope, I never thought about it though. I might start doing it. xD

February 18th, 2008, 10:22 PM

Do friends count as things?

anyways I name all of my stuffed animals


February 19th, 2008, 8:37 AM
No, I don't name my stuff.

I name the characters I create, but nothing more.

February 19th, 2008, 8:56 AM
I name everything xD

My cellphone is named Crispin :3 My DS is named Patunia x3 And the list goes on...

I don't name things. I like the idea of ownership. My Laptop, my book, my voice recorder, etc. Givening them names would lessen my power over them and make my ownership less.

*stares at her laptop* Bob?

The only items I name are plushies now. I have, of course, Andy the Pikachu and Angel the Jolteon, named after my favorite book character and an original character I made up for fanfics based on said book.

At work, I used to name the sponges I used to clean. They were all named Sparky. But other people kept throwing them out, so I decided it best to not get attached.

February 19th, 2008, 7:53 PM
Err no I don't...why would I? o_o

February 20th, 2008, 11:48 AM
I only name my plush toys. Like I have a Pikachu plush I named Sparky. But I don't name anything else

wow. i was just gonna say that. i done exactly the same thing =D

February 24th, 2008, 2:13 AM
I don't give name to my things. Only on stufftoys:D

February 24th, 2008, 2:56 AM
I used to name my old toys, but not anymore. I only name things by what they actually are.

February 24th, 2008, 1:19 PM
I name all my stuff. Seriously. <_<
