    Hello! I hope everyone is having a great day/evening~!

    So like the thread title title inquires: What did you name your device? Does it have a special or random meaning?

    Mine: Dream ☆ Apple Kuro or Kuro-tan :p

    I have a habit of titling my electronics Dream ☆ Apple and then give it a "name".. lately it has just been colors! XD

    How about you?

    Every device I have has been named after an ai of some sort from books, movies, etc.

    My iPad 2 is called masashi, after an ai from the ghost in the shell 2 book.

    All of my iOS devices have been named "my"Device. For example... myPhone 3G, then myPhone 4 and myPad, then myPad 2. Simple and effective :apple:

    iPad 2: Escher, after the artist
    iPod Touch 4G: Sojourner, after a Mars exploration robot

    I recently switched from unmanned space missions to artists because I didn't want to call my iPad "Venera" :eek::D.

    Named mine Frank at setup. Then I changed it to "(my name)'s iPad" since I take it to work often. However, Frank kinda stuck as its official "name."

    Well...

    My iPad 2 is White, with the light blue smart-cover. So naturally the first name that came to mind was "Ika", as in "Ika Musume". I use her on my lock screen as well.

    Lol, it's been a while since I watched anime. Is this anime available on DVD or just fan-subbed? If the later, do you have a link to get it? :D

    Anyways, being a huge DBZ fan, I named my devices:

    MBP: Gokuu
    iPad: Gohan
    Phone: Trunks

    (I had other devices named Vegeta and Goten, but don't use them anymore. Plus, I have been too busy to revise the names of my devices).

    EDIT: I found a link to download the anime, I didn't know is still a show in progress. And it's fan-subbed, which is really good.

    I named my iPad "The Titanic"

    Now every time I plug it in, iTunes tells me "The Titanic is syncing" :D
