"Lives and even spirits" or "Such a spiffy idea"

Hi. I'm new here - just joined, like 2 minutes ago. I like naming inanimate objects. I guess it started with stuffed animals and dolls and figurines when I was a kid. I had some really crazy names for some of them, some of which I don't even remember. I do remember being in love with The Velveteen Rabbit, and really believing that our everyday objects could have on lives and even spirits of their own.

But I didn't realize how much I really liked naming them until college. I had this laptop that wasn't always the most pleasant of objects, and it just had such a strong personality. In Spanish class my first semester, one of our words was "nefasto," which means "disastrous." I saw that, and I just knew that's what my laptop's name was. I've been venturing outside of childhood toys since then, naming all kinds of stuff, usually after stuff from songs, especially Tori Amos. I have few objects that still need names, which I'll ask about later. For now, I'll just say thanks for such a spiffy idea for a community!
