An unusual request: Name my iPod

I have had an iPod steadily since I got my first beautiful pink iPod mini in high school. Most recently I got a 6th gen pink Nano for Christmas. I named it Mae after the pink-haired character in Sarah Rees Brennan’s Demon Lexicon series. Mae served me well until . . . she didn’t.

Mae broke earlier this summer and luckily was still in warranty so I could get a replacement. All was well except for having to reimport every single song onto the new iPod. I named the new iPod Mavis which is what Nick calls Mae in the series when she is being difficult.

Today Mavis also broke so I now have a totally impractically sized paperweight instead of a music player. Luckily the warranty is still in effect.

Anyway, having gone through two iPods with similar names I think it’s time to start fresh. But I have no naming ideas. So, I’m opening this one up for suggestions in the comments. Won’t you suggest a name for my replacement iPod (preferably with some book related name) and make me a very happy blogger?

  1. I named my first apple lap top Elroy, from the Jetsons because I thought it was so high tech. So when I got my ipod I named it Judy, also from the Jetson’s. My camera was named Gigdet from the 1960s tv show. I didn’t have a reason it felt like a Gigdet. My nano I named Holly as in Holly Golightly because it was black with a pink case that felt like a Holly Golightly. Those are names I have used. Since I don’t have any of those items any more… feel free to use them.


  2. I suggest Magnus because it’s a strong, durable-sounding name. If you insist that your iPod is female, then perhaps Hilda because I’ve never known a Hilda who backed down from a challenge.
