I am not a namer of things.
I have never named my car, household items, or other possessions. I used to deliberate for weeks over naming a pet, and that name was quite likely to change multiple times over the animal's life span. (We had a lot of barn cats, so they came and went fairly often.)
The names I remember from childhood? I had a cat named "Kiss" (who turned out to be a boy, by the way, and is also responsible for the small scar on my chin), an indoor cat named "Smokey", and imaginary friends named, I kid you not, "Gartserts" and "Sitserts"...pronounced like they sound.
So, yeah, not a champion namer here. It's a miracle Jeremy and I decided on the girls' names with relatively little argument.
What's the point of all my rambling about names? I need a name for my Kindle! The poor thing is still going by the boring, corporate-bestowed name of "Deanna's Kindle". (If you don't know...the name of your Kindle shows in the top of the screen and is used when managing your Kindle online.)
I would kind of like a literary or pop-culture name for my Kindle. A few I've thought of so far include: Darcy (from Pride and Prejudice), Harper (as in To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee), and McDreamy (Grey's Anatomy). Obviously, I am not completely sure if my Kindle is male or female.
Are you a namer? What strange names have you used in the past? Do you have any suggestions for my beloved Kindle's name??
