Eventually I became rather attracted to the receiver in my stereo system... I decided that I would name her "Niki", because like the other Niki, she was quite attractive...
And one day, I'm playing around with her... she has this big LED display... She can display stuff like radio station names and such (4 letters)... So I put in as one of the station presets her name: N-I-K-I.
Months go by and I've forgotten all about this..
Then one day my friend, who has since moved on to doing something other than that job, comes over to visit...
He goes "I see you bought that one receiver you were talking about... Can I look?" and I'm like "Sure"... He starts playing with the controls and up on the display pops "NIKI", the name of a girl he -still hates-.
He says "You did this for my 'benefit'..."
I, now laughing hysterically, and with back then no nuts to admit I gave my receiver a name, go: "Yes :-D"
(Actually... I think the problem more pertained to admitting that I'd given her the same name as that particular girl, but in any event, I was having trouble admitting this)
