Closest is naming my first computer 'Crashstation'.

Lucky for me, machines can be called "Hey you" without thinking about the repercussions it could have on their ego.

I name my sketchbooks after my original characters, until now I have Sissy I, Sissy II, Daisy I and Leo I.

And if this counts, I got names for some of my cars in video games, I have a Corvette in Gran Turismo 5 which I name "The Flying Orange" and an orange Lamborghini Reventón in Need For Speed Shift which I call "The Reventador".

Ah, Maurishio-kun, I named some of my cars on various games too. Had a 2001 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 which I named Bayside, after the best color for an R34 EVER!!! I had a Lamborghini Aventador that I named Death. (I kept crashing the damn thing) A Bugatti Veyron I named Lightning (After Lightning from FF12).

I only name things I've built or are otherwise unique (because I've already personalised them, so it makes sense to name them).

I name all my expensive electronics and items. My boyfriend names everything. Plushes, blankets, pillows, socks, everything. He gets emotionally attached to all things.

My first computer ever was named "Caroline" after the main character in Paradise Kiss. My portfolio book for college was called "Baby cakes" and I refereed to it often as my child, that thing cost me an arm and a leg. Courtesy of my boyfriend our plushes are named: "Ellie", "Rafael", "Sho", "Julius" (bf likes to add Ceaser), "Choco", "PenPen" "Mon Kats", etc etc I could go on for a while with all the things he names.

Despite the fact I really want to give my electronics names.... I never do. >>;; THOUGH my stuffed bears all have names. Hahaha. I always tempted to try to give my laptop at least a name as it's been with me almost seven years now (and still roaring to go). We'll see.

Not usually, but there have been exceptions.

In school, my roommate and I took care of 3 little potted plants. We named them Larry, Curley, and Moe. Then part-way through the school year, we acquired a fourth plant and named it Colonel Klink.

A couple of friends and I enjoy naming cars. It started when one friend got herself a purple car, so we named it Barney (after the big purple dinosaur). When Barney died, my friend got herself a grey car, so we named it Babar. I recently got a car of my own and we tried to name it, but so far, nothing has really stuck so I just call it Car.

Dude my bass guitar is named "Lucy". It used to be really cool when my friend and I were in a band and her guitar was named "Ricky".

Not so much Electronics, but I'm notorious for naming inanimate objects and then talking to them.

I named my old journal Marcus. At the time I was really into Resident Evil and thought the villain from RE0 was the best. My hot glue gun is named Regina, it's a bright pink so the mean girls reference just sort of fit far to well.

And then at work, in my department, we've got a bunch of mannequins we use to display coats and swimwear (seasonal stuff) we named them as well, but for the life of me I can't remember all their names. Samantha, Georgia, and then two others. We keep a list by the till so we can keep them straight.

My friends and I lovingly refer to my GPS as Janet. Whenever it tries to direct us to a nonexistent road or exit (the map is a little outdated) we can then say, "Dammit, Janet."

I'm sorry; every time I see the thread title I read "intimate objects" instead of inanimate


Anyways..... I name a lot of my stuff, but most of it doesn't stick or just isn't useful. For example, my computer is The Heart of Gold (because my power source is a shiny metallic gold colour) and it follows that my HD is the Improbability Drive. But I never call my computer "The Heart of Gold" because it's sooo much easier to say "my computer" or "compy".

Names that have stuck are mostly for places - I have named all my homes since moving out of my parents' house. Places I've lived include: The Townhouse, Mushroom Kingdom, Arkham, the Batcave, the Lair, and My Sanctum Solarium.

Named my motorcycles after anime characters. The first one was a Yamaha Virago 250 I named Yohji. Then a 2003 Suzuki Marauder named Sanzo.

Have had a 2006 Honda 599 named Hakkai since 2008.

Also my car is Su(baru)-san, aka the Swedemobile. 2009 Legacy 2.5SE.
