    Nope, no christening. Champaign is expensive and hard on electronics.

    I do give my devices (unimaginative) simple names like (MyName)Pad or (MyName)Phone so I can tell them apart from each other when backing up and such.

    I used to be slightly more imaginative. I had an orange iBook (older mac laptop) named AgentOrange.

    My first iPod nano was deemed "Jamie's iPod of DOOM" by my hubby when he set it up for Christmas morning opening. We thought that was cute;)
    So then my second iPod, a touch was called "Jamie's touch of DOOM".
    Then I got an iPad 2 and I called it "The Duece". And then I sold it and got a 3 and called it "The Duece Part du"
    My oldest son changes his device names all the time, right now his Kindle is named "Dr Doffenshock"

    Speaking of bikes, I am a huge bike fanatic and name all my bikes:
    Road bike is "Roo"
    Fat bike/snow bike is "Pugs"
    Fixed gear track/beer run bike is "Duke Terd"
    Mountain Unicycle(yes, one wheel!) is "Conundrum"

    No names for mine. Even on iTunes or Kindle synch, they're called iPad 1, 2 or 4. It's not as if they'd come running if I called them by name, lol.
