My Silver Sonic is Amy, my 606 for marching is Natalie, I haven't named my valve trombone since I rarely use it, and I'm already tryimg to come up with names that might be good for the large bore horm I'm going to be getting soon.

I name my trombones! And the baritone that I used for like six months. My old trombone's name is Catalina, my new one is Harpo. That baritone's name is Chico. And I need some help for bass trombone names! The hs band I'm in might get a double trigger bass trombone for me to play my junior year, and people after me, and I'm at a loss for a name! (Should it be a masculine name or a femine name? hm...)

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) ?

Most as far as I've seen from here, and my school are usually feminine, I'm not too sure though.

Why am I not surprised that an Aussie would name his horn Bruce !  Grin

Errrrrr, let me think....Sheila would be a good name for it.  Good!
Or maybe Shane.
Maybe you could call it Irwin as a tribute to your recently departed countrymate.
I think the best name would be Flintoff (I'll leave the Yanks to work out why)

Did we not already have this poll? Don't know   Oh well, Iv'e changed my mine anyway.  I decided to name my Bach 42, my current concert and marching horn, Spartacus.   And when my Edwards comes in, I'll call it Maximus.

My friend had a trombone he called Susie Slushpump. My Shires is Mr. Shires, my Bach is anonymous. Another friend had a Bach 42B bell section and a Conn 88H slide--he called it his Coch  Horrors!

I never named my trombones until a GF insisted.

My King became Roy
My Conn became Connie

I know not very imaginative.

I named most of my cars though.

Toyota Starlet --Mr Mota
Honda Civic--  Rita Hondita
Brown Volvo 240 Wagon-- Coco
Mazda Miata-Carmencita

Sold that Miata to my step-daughter.  She called it Fred at first but now calls it Carmencita Fred.

I had a VW New Beetle we called Bug but I probably would have come up with something else if I didn't have to give it to my ex.

both of my current cars lack names.

Mazda Protege5
Mazda Miata 2000 SE (the one with the weird paint that looks maroon, brown, or purple depending on the light).

I have two trombones.

The 3B is the bucket.  The 36 is the beast.

A friend of mine has a 3B with some Conn parts, maybe even a Conn slide. It is a terrific horn, and we call it "King Conn".
