I name my trombones! And the baritone that I used for like six months. My old trombone's name is Catalina, my new one is Harpo. That baritone's name is Chico. And I need some help for bass trombone names! The hs band I'm in might get a double trigger bass trombone for me to play my junior year, and people after me, and I'm at a loss for a name! (Should it be a masculine name or a femine name? hm...)

My old Holton is Jack. I'm  getting a new one soon, though.
Here's a question: Are trombones masculine or feminine (in concern to naming) ?

Errrrrr, let me think....Sheila would be a good name for it.  Image
Or maybe Shane.
Maybe you could call it Irwin as a tribute to your recently departed countrymate.
I think the best name would be Flintoff (I'll leave the Yanks to work out why)

I never named my trombones until a GF insisted.

My King became Roy
My Conn became Connie

I know not very imaginative.

I named most of my cars though.

Toyota Starlet --Mr Mota
Honda Civic--  Rita Hondita
Brown Volvo 240 Wagon-- Coco
Mazda Miata-Carmencita

Sold that Miata to my step-daughter.  She called it Fred at first but now calls it Carmencita Fred.

I had a VW New Beetle we called Bug but I probably would have come up with something else if I didn't have to give it to my ex.

both of my current cars lack names.

Mazda Protege5
Mazda Miata 2000 SE (the one with the weird paint that looks maroon, brown, or purple depending on the light).

A friend of mine has a 3B with some Conn parts, maybe even a Conn slide. It is a terrific horn, and we call it "King Conn".

I think I have some:

Student Yamaha = Lucky (I was going to play trumpet, but my director wanted at least ONE trombone in the band)

Bach = Rusty (You all should know why - I'm working on fixing that particular problem)

Stradivarious = Ranger

Bass Bone (can't remember model.... Image ) = Y-cubed (The first song I played on it was "Yeah, yeah, yeah")

I started out on the clarinet first, and was going to double on sax.

Then one year the band teacher said there were way too many clarinets and not enough trombones.....

My students name their instruments. I should say this seems to have no relationship to how much they practice, how well they do in their lessons, or how well they play.

I keep threatening to name my bass.  Big Mouth Billy was taken, though.  I usually say, when asked, that its name is Tanagra because someone once referred to it as The Beast, but I never actually call it that.

My computers have names.  Many computers in networks have names, and some people put great personal importance on those names.

I won't tell Patricia that you were making disparaging remarks about naming dishwashers, though.  And I'm glad that you referred only to coffee makers rather than French press pots, or else Fifi might be upset.

Trombones...mouthpieces...I also name my mutes!

...not to mention all of the stands in band, and the risers we use in jazz...my folders and chairs have names, too. I also name each note in a piece - they belong to the "immediate families" in each measure and the "extended families" up until each rehearsal number/letter.

...I can't remember my name for the life of me, though. Image

I have named both of my trombones. My Conn 18H I have owned since middle school and on a high school band trip I met and hung out with a beautiful girl named Connie... So after that trip my 18H became Connie. Image My Conn 88HO is named Conrad.

Back in high school my Bundy clarinet was Jim, my one piece silver clarinet (Pittfield, I'm too lazy to go look) was Amy.  My Old's valve trombone was Nancy and my Blessing B88 was Tim.  Real original I know....named after my band directors (Tim talked me into switching to bone) and their wives.

My Conn doesn't have a name.  I don't know why, got him in '98.  We name our trucks too, but I can't repeat them here in front of the children.  My friend names all his tubas.
