I had a humorous and excentric piano teacher who named my piano:

Meet "Anastasia"

Have mercy! that is a stunner Cary. Does that lamp take 60 watt or hundred watt bulbs??

Kidding.

Anastasia is gorgeous. If it sounds anything like it looks it must be heaven.


BTW - check out Tar on youtube.com he can play (inner lion my fav of his) Give it a couple of minutes until he warms up. He didn't even pay me to write that.

Anatasia is a knock-out. If she sounds any where near as beautiful as she looks, well then, "pretty is as pretty does!"

I've have two pianos and both were named.

First there was Mabel, a particularly buxom M&H A (style Louis).

Now there's the Princess of Prague (Petrof 194mm) w/ Stanwood action & trophy ivory key tops. Sounds good, too !

Anastasia looks really pretty!

I call my Grand "The big one" and my upright "The smaller one". I've thought of giving them proper names, but I can't come up with any good ones.

Cary, if there was a Miss Piano contest Anastasia would easily make it to the final round smile

Karl, I like "Mabel" smile I remember the name being described in an episode of Jeeves and Wooster as "the sound of trees rustling gently in the wind". Thing is it's also the name of the lead soprano character in Gilbert's and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance, so now when I think of the name there's also a comical connotation to it, reminding me of the 17-year-old who said she'd wait until her lover reached the age of 84 when he would be able to come back to her. It's a good name though... *thinks*
