    As you may or may not know you can give your iDevice a custom name. I always give mine names from Greek mythology. So, I named my iPhone 6 Plus Helios. Why? Because Helios is the god who was depicted in the statue known commonly as the Collossus of Rhodes. You know. Because it's really big.

    Seriously? Giving your device a custom name isn't that weird, my man.

    I got my 4S on release day and named it 4Steve who had passed away just days before. Doubt I will ever name a phone again, but that seemed fitting.

    It's not a fail because it's not a joke.

    I think I love you.

    Not really. I have a lot of iDevices including a couple of old iPhones that appear on my wi-fi network. I like them to have names so I can keep track of them. It's neither creepy nor insane.

    In that case you have also made a very wise choice.

    "Owner's" iPhone always strikes me as very Microsoft, so that BS has to get changed.

    It's an option in iTunes. It isn't like I'm just giving it a name like a baby or something. It's the name that shows up on the wi-fi network, in iTunes and so forth.
