    Do you give names to inanimate objects?!

    I call my car Gilbert after the character of Gilbert Blythe in Anne of Green Gables. Some people I know have also "named" their cars, while others think I'm totally bonkers!

    Does anyone here do anything similar? Or do you agree that it's completely crazy?! I just love names so much that it's fun to name as many things as possible!!

    (I'm sorry if I've put this thread in the wrong place - wasn't sure...)

    I absolutely give names to inanimate objects that I'm very fond of – and they are always anagrams of something meaningful to me.

    I recently acquired a Kindle Paperwhite that has become my constant companion. So of course I had to name her: "Celandine Hellspanker." Which is an anagram of "Nephele Carnal's Kindle." (Nephele Carnal is the full screenname that I use on the goth forums I administer.)

    I call my car Philip. It started as a joke - it's a SUV and my previous car was a compact so I started calling it Philip as in "fill up" - it stuck and now my friends and family also refer to it by name.
