Or if you get "top gear" on BBC America or otherwise, a vehicle driven acrossed some African Countries was named "Oliver" by Hammond

My old Holton is Jack. I'm  getting a new one soon, though.
Here's a question: Are trombones masculine or feminine (in concern to naming) ?
well....feminine, because guys always give any kind of machine girl names...like a truck named betty.....and us guys always say like..."her" or "she in reference to lawnmowers....so i guess the same can be said to trombones.....

My Conn 48H is Rachel. Rachel always seemed like the name for a finicky kind of girl to me, possibly because of "Friends". The 48H feels great most of the time, but occasionally gets really stiff and disagreeable.

Conn 88H-YO is Amy. Very sweet and pure, but sometimes a little immature. I love my 88, but it simply can't get broad and dark like other modern orchestral tenors.

Yamaha 354 is just You. As in, "I'm going to turn You into a floor lamp."

I named my friend's used, custom Yamaha bass Orson. Another friend's used Bach 42BO is Clyde.

Don't what I'll name my future alto or bass, nor any additional tenors. Actually, scratch that. I know exactly what I'll name my bass: Big Barda, after the DC Comics character.

I've referred to my trombone as "my baby" but have never felt the need to put a lot of thought into naming it. Its true name is probably some unspoken musical idea, meant to be heard, but never written. ugh, that's a little poetic.

Most people name their instruments the opposite gender of themselves I think, it's what I've noticed. Like how I'm female and my trombones are males.

I most commonly use "my good horn" when my friends are horsing around after school, and I threaten them with death if the ase gets a scratch, but I have named my Yamaha YSL-356R Megan, partly due to the fact that she has red hair and my trombone bell is red brass :D.

Never had names until I picked up my first student.  He is borrowing my 77h frankenbone and I called it "Ugly"  He calls my 78H "Purdy" because it looks nice compared to "Ugly." My most recent ebay purchase (a very nice playing 70's 77h Connquest) we call "Scratchy" because the slide is by far the loudest of the bunch.

I'm getting a Lindberg Valve installed on my Bach 42... (Bach 42CL???)  I think I'm going to call it Baconn.

One of my friends named my YSL640 "snowflake"
because she thought the tuning fork symbol thing looked like a snowflake. 

We then translated it into Japanese, (Yamaha..yeah...) making her Yuki. 

I think that trombones should be feminine, if only for the reason that
we spend an inordinate number of hours with our faces pressed into them.

Eventually I will name my trombone, I have to wait until I make a reference to it and I just naturally say a name for it.

In reference to gender, It would have to be feminine.
