Naming random things! 

Naming random things! 

Does anyone out there besides me name random things? Or am I just crazy? Anyway, I made one of these threads a while ago, so I'm rebooting it bc it's on like page 20 of CaC XD

Anyway, here are some of the random things I've named:

- My current bike is called the Ebin Hawk after a spaceship from a video game (though I changed the spelling to match the name of a friend of mine). My past bikes were Spirit and Ranger.

- I had a ukulele named Perversus (Latin for "squint"... long story). The case was named Subuculi (also a long story). My current ukulele is named Poi and the case is named Borealis.

- My iPad is named Kitty... I'm actually not entirely sure how that started...

- Our cars are The Blue Spirit (ATLA reference) and Scooby/Combat Boot/Vader/Darth Subaru/Ghost Dog (it's a black Subaru, we haven't exactly decided what to name it)

- My phone is named Ace.

- My water bottle is also named Ace. I can explain.

- My favorite fineliner pen is named Michiko.

- My laptop is named Anastasia Bray.

- My headphones are named Maya Sundaresh. 

- Our laundry room is named Doctor Demagol's Waiting Room. The short version of the story is that it's from a comic. 

- My pets are Casey, Sunny, and Cosmo, though I'm not entirely sure if that counts since everyone names pets. 

Wow, that's a lot XD

Woah! I thought I was the only person who did that!!!

I named aloe plant Wesley after Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation because the plant pot had a little burlap wrap around it, kinda like a sweater. Wesley Crusher always wears sweaters so that became his name. 

I also used to have a scooter when I was really little and it's name was Red Flyer. It was red, hence the name.

Oh. Ok. It's honestly not that interesting....

Basically, at school, we were doing skits for theology (which literally is the "study of God" if you don't know - I go to a private school) and so some other people in my class and I had a certain section of the book of Genesis - or maybe it was Exodus - eh, I don't remember, but  the section we had was about Moses, and in the skit I played Moses' mom. And then we acted out Moses getting married, and it says in the Bible that his son is named Gershom, and so to represent Gershom we used my pencil bag. And since he was the son of Moses, naturally I am his grandmother!!!

Except when we had the marriage in the skit it was kind of weird because, I mean, we're seventh graders, and the people acting Moses and Zipporah (his wife) actually did kind of like each other, but the WEIRDEST thing is that the person in our group who was kind of in charge was like "five days later" and then in the skit they had Gershom. But you know middle school boys what do you expect.

I have an aloe vera plant named Allie, (short story: I was like ten) and all the bikes in the house are named whatever the logo on their side is, and we name all of our 30+ chickens, even though the odds are that we'll forget their names very quickly.

Wow, 30+ chickens? The most we've ever had is 4 at a time (I think we've had 8 chickens total over the years). My favorite one was probably Grandpa Phil. Grandpa Phil was female, but I named her that bc my grandfather of the same name built the hen house. Rn we don't have any chickens bc they all got eaten by various wildlife. :( My friend Sarah has a bunch of chickens though!

I didn't know other people named everything to!

-I name all of my many, many notebooks really random names. A few on the top of my head are Wilbur and Clarisse. I have no idea how I decide on these names.

-I named my spider plant Millie.

-My one cat's name is Yoda, but no one ever calls him that because we all have weird nicknames for him. These include Flufferman and Yoder Motor (his purring is very loud). My other cat is Darthy, but we call her Doofin and Doodlebug.

No, it's fine. We like people to post often. We often think people post too little on the Chatterbox. We need as much activeness as we can get. 

ALso, I post often on things sooooo.... yeah.

My younger dog's name is Liberty and we call her Bert for short. It fits her perfectly, 'cause she's a mess but she's really happy and playful and literally the sweetest. She's a yellow lab/husky, and she looks like a dingo that ate a small barrel. Flipping adorable. She's always smiling, and her favorite trick is to give hugs, where she jumps up and gently leans on you with her paws around your waist. I can tell you guys more about my adorable doggo, if you'd like, and maybe I could find a picture.

I had a plant named King once, but it died because I forgot to water it for two months.

Most of chickens (there's 67 of them, I think) have names, including but not limited to: Carlos, Pedro, Othello, Spice (but I call her Ella Fitzgerald),  and Keith.

My dog is Marcie. She's a beagle, and since Snoopy is a beagle we wanted to name her something from the Peanuts cartoons. We were at a tie between Lucy and Marcie, but we eventually decided on Marcie.

My cat is named Callie, because she's a calico.

My fish is named Fish. We couldn't decide on a name for him.

There's this clay pot I made I named Barry, it's named after Barry B. Benson from the bee movie because there's a clay bee on its side.

My flute used to be named something when I first got it,but now I call it Jeimenhart because that's it's brand.

Henri is my CAPTCHA pet. He says cutgi. Yes, you are a cutie!
