Default Do you...

... Name your inanimate objects?

Like your car?

I got a portable hard drive tonight and named him Hershel the Hard Drive,

Of course! lol
Iphone is firefly
Ipad is the deathstar
Macbook is portkey
lol I mean, I name things that have to have names when plugged in and such..but I also totally name stuffed animals and such.

All of merlin's toys have nicknames, as well as my pillow pet (Pegasus) lol

No, which is weird, because I'm obsessed with names and I give all my animals first and middle (sometimes two middle) names.

My car is Billie Jean
my last car was Clyde

No! I can't even come up with names for things that need them. Like my pets. Don't think my brain could handle naming anything else unnecessarily lol.
And if all of it is for naught, well at least I took a shot

Our little tractor is Mildred.

Our cars also have names.

And our carpet shampooer is Sir Clarence. He used to just be Clarence but when we moved into the first house we bought there was a stain on the living room carpet and we said if he got it out we would knight him. He did so we did. He almost earned "the Great" when we moved into our current house but sadly he failed to fully remove the challenge stain, so he remains merely Sir Clarence.

Otherwise, not really.

The Impala is Hopscotch.
My Zune is Cupcake... the iPod I bought specifically for running music is Apollo (LOLOLOL Rocky reference.)
My computer is Herbert and laptop is Oliver.

And my GPS is named DD. Short for DerpDerp, because he's kinda stupid sometimes. I always talk to him by name haha. "Thank you DD." "Sorry DD."

While I don't really call it that, I unofficially named my Corolla Beaker because it goes "Meep!" like the Muppet.
