Do You Name Things?
« on: May 03, 2012, 12:52:53 PM »
Inanimate things. Lemme explain.

So, I got a new bicycle beginning of the week. I've been on a health kick (Being mildly overweight my whole life, I decided last November to change things) recently, so I thought "Ya know, I don't live too far from where I work. If I bike to work every day, I can get some good excercise." So, I go to Wal-Mart to buy a bike, and find a nice 100 dollar job. So, I buy it and love it. She's a nice black and orange, so I name her Charlotte after Charlotte from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica.

What I suppose the point of this post is, am I the only one who names inanimate objects? If not, what things do you have named, and why? What significance do they have?

Also, I named my Lappy Erizen after my WoW Warrior (Before I quit), because my computer, like Erizen, was never the best for what I wanted her for, but she worked.

It's not something I do myself but I know others who do that and never really thought twice about it.  Someone here at work named the paper shredder Crunch Bird.

I am certain some people actually would give names to inanimate objects. Like in one of my hobbies, I do actually give names to some what I had collect and own.. But then again, it's really normal for that hobby, in a sense.

I also do name my car and name it 'Kuro' and refer it as 'her'.

Only if I don't like them.  Then they get called names like "dammit" and "you suck" and "you're trash."

My phone name is Re-Re........... -_- And I believe that's why it doesn't work, it doesn't like its pet name.

I name my electronics. My laptop is Clarice and my desktop is Wulfric. (I don't know. My desktop just gives off a Wulfric vibe.)
