Now that you mention it - I should name them... Good!

I think I have some:

Student Yamaha = Lucky (I was going to play trumpet, but my director wanted at least ONE trombone in the band)

Bach = Rusty (You all should know why - I'm working on fixing that particular problem)

Stradivarious = Ranger

Bass Bone (can't remember model.... Don't know ) = Y-cubed (The first song I played on it was "Yeah, yeah, yeah")

I started out on the clarinet first, and was going to double on sax.

Then one year the band teacher said there were way too many clarinets and not enough trombones.....

My Yamaha 354 from 1986 was Timothy for a while.... I didn't use the name very long.

I don't name horns, but I'll refer to a horn I own as "my baby".

My students name their instruments. I should say this seems to have no relationship to how much they practice, how well they do in their lessons, or how well they play.

I keep threatening to name my bass.  Big Mouth Billy was taken, though.  I usually say, when asked, that its name is Tanagra because someone once referred to it as The Beast, but I never actually call it that.

Same here.

Do people name their toasters? Their washing machines? Their coffee makers? Their computers? Don't know

My computers have names.  Many computers in networks have names, and some people put great personal importance on those names.

I won't tell Patricia that you were making disparaging remarks about naming dishwashers, though.  And I'm glad that you referred only to coffee makers rather than French press pots, or else Fifi might be upset.

I had a boss, about 20 years ago, who gave all the gas chromatographs female names. It just goes to show how long we keep our equipment - we still have the one called Mavis!

Now that Brain has established that the non-living have feelings, I don't want the mouthpieces to feel left out! Clever
