Never named my student bach, tried for ten years but nothing seemed to stick but my 'new baby' Olds Super is Rose, cause she is rose brass and she is the daughter I always wanted (even my son calls her 'mummy's new baby'!) Dunno how I know she is a girl but she just is, and yet my bach was a boy Confused

My Shires is Seran, my Getzen is Josue, and my old marching trombone that I've retired was Johnny.

Always fun to name a horn :D  my Shires is named Prometheus, my alto is named Hermes, and my Martin is named Rutherford.  My favorite names, however, are my King and my Yamaha student horn.  I named the King Mayonnaise, as in "is mayonnaise and instrument?"  And the Yamaha is named Horseradish, as in "No, Patrick, horseradish isn't an instrument either."

Still need to name my pbone, although I'm having an artistic friend of mine take some sharpies to it and make it prettier, so I'll wait until after that to name it

I call my Olds P24G "the bass trombone", my Bach 36B "the tenor trombone" and my old Conn valve trombone "the valve trombone."  Hey, when you only have three this system works.

I named mine in high school ("Robbie" and "Napoleon"), but haven't used the names recently. Something about pretending to be an adult...?

These days, being completely devoid of fun, as all grown-ups are, I merely refer to them as "my beater horn" and "my good horn" (alternatively known as "my 36").

I have yet to name my Getzen, my Rath is named Eve (After a special someone in my life), and my 4B inherited the name of my first horn - Archer.

No, I've never been able to name objects. Even when my parents had a boat I felt silly referring to it by its boat name.

I too have never had any desire or need to name any object. Heck, I usually have trouble getting the names of my three daughters right.

For those that name their trombones, has anyone had a "male" trombone that felt it was actually a "girl?"

I have a similar system: "the Olds, The Holton and the Blessing."

I have one that is biologically a girl but self-identifies as a boy :-P

Rath Contra's name is "Brunhilde",and the Rath Bass is "The Wrath".

Corny, but satisfying on some visceral level :)

I don't name anything necessarily, be it my car, bicycle, horn, or whatever. When people ask though, I always just say "Tim". I don't know why, I just arbitrarily picked a name. So, unofficially, every horn--from the Conn mellophonium on the wall to the bass trombones I play daily--is named Tim.

Bruce,

Be careful which rest room you take your trombone into - in some states, you could get into trouble!   Bad dog.  No Biscuits.

While my instruments are not named, and I clearly see the merit in a feminine name for something that is both artistic/musical and, more critically, continuously pressed against my face ... I somehow cannot discount the fact that these weak sauce names somehow bring a great instrument down. Sure, an edgy cool name like Nora Morse, or Lucille would kill several birds with one stone ...

But for sheer awesome power that isn't actually a man's name, yet conjures up images like the one below, may I reserve the exclusive right to use the following name for my new Edwards:

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

This sounds cool, matt. Did this actually happen? Have you posted about this in another thread?

My school-owned YBL421G Yamaha single bass is "Big Bertha". Someone named her before I got her.
My Roy Benson double bass is "Cortland". Named after all the hours of work at an apple orchard it took to earn enough money to buy the trombone. (Cortland is an apple variety)
