I'm still trying names on for size. I think my piano's a man, because it's big and brawny.

Since I'm a Star Trek fan, my husband has suggested James T. (That's Captain Kirk's first name and initial, for the non-initiated.) I think I like it.

I was also considering Tiberius, which is what the T stands for. And it has that bold Roman emperor quality about it. But I think I'm leaning toward the casual insouciance of James T.

"Yama" is Japanese for "mountain." And musical progress really IS like climbing a mountain, isn't it? thumb

I started off thinking I would name my piano Mary Elizabeth, after my mother. (It was her inheritance that enabled me to buy the piano.) But after I got the piano home, I soon became aware that it was definitely male. Then somebody here in the forum referred to my piano as the Pied Piper of Hamlin, and it was one of those "a-ha!" moments, because I realized at that moment that Piper was in fact my piano's true name.

I've named my piano "Yogurt" the Yamaha Clavinova. I've also named my car "Henry" the Honda. My girlfriend got me into naming everything. Our fridge has a name, too. Frederic.

Never thought about naming really, interesting thought though

I think Maestro Otto would suit him well, seeing the piano mark is Otto Meister

But if i get a bosendorfer grand, it's a she defenitely

Okay, I made up the part about the fridge, but since I made the post, my girlfriend has agreed that Frederic is a good name for the Fridge.

My Jeep's name is Gertrude. (Dirty Gertie, after I've taken her off-roading for the mud-bath that she requires, in order to maintain her good looks!)

The central heat/air unit is named Hector. (I don't know how that name came about, but now I'm going to have to name the dishwasher and the fridge.)

The pianos don't have names, but I'll need to rectify that, too.

The Yamaha... Lady Helga. (Dominatrix, that she is!)

The Alesis digital is easy: Al.

The coffee maker is named Sam, because he reminds me of the character in "The Hobbit." Always faithful, sometimes sputters and stutters a little, but day after day, he just chugs along, doing what he's asked.

My piano's name is George. Here's an explanation of why I call him George: http://asortofnotebook.blogspot.com/2005/02/wherefore-art-thou-george.html.

I used to have a clavinova named Electra, but I sold her.

I have'nt "officially" named my M&H "BB" yet, but I tell people that the "BB" stands for "Big Boy"!

Unofficially, I think he (the piano) can talk, as all it ever sais to me is "hey, come here and dust me!!" :p
