what's engraved in your iPod ?

I'm waiting until tuesday to order an iPod from the apple store and I don't know what text I want on it. Do you have it engraved and if so what is written on it. Give me some ideas ...

I had to look to see what was engraved on my Nano cause I rarely use it

Line 1: [My full name here]
Line 2: P huNgy

I would put "Damn Near Perfect" on my older iPod, and "Damn Perfect" on my newer one

My mom's 4gb nano has "Ciao Bella" engraved in it.

"Hello Beautiful" in Italian.

I was going to put a personalization on mine, but I got one as a gift a short time later. It would've been, "Yes I'm White, And No, I can't Dance."

Scratches.

I would only personalize if I was giving it to someone else.

Actually, name and address would be useful if some bastard ever decided to try and take it.

Practicality over wit.

I went with practical over witty:

Line 1: Full Name
Line 2: e-mail address

I guess I figured if I lost it at school (small veterinary medicine program), I'd be more likely to get it back if people knew whose it was. Also, I couldn't come up with something witty.

I've owned a few iPods. However, none have been engraved.

Last year, I purchased a 5th generation iPod for my wife, and I engraved upon it these characters: S2.

I had my nano engraved with my initials, but that really killed the resale value of it.

Most people don't want a 1st gen nano with "SSB" engraved on the back...
