I noticed many of us have named our ukes. Time to out of the closet. What did you name yours, and why?

Guess I'll be the first one to go the other way. I refer to my ukes either by the style or manufacturer; gypsy jazz, mandolele, Kala, Godin, brown burst, spalted, two hole. I never was one to anthropomorphize inanimate objects.

I have three ukes, generally referred to as the soprano, the longneck soprano, and the low G. I have a hard enough time naming pets, I'm not about to start naming inanimate objects! :)

This is how I do it too.
For the one my wife doesn't recognize, it is "the one I had around, you know? Don't remember??"

Me neither. I call mine either by the model/brand or by the color (if different).

I haven't named mine, I was truly interested to hear from those who have. Rather than those who haven't. I thought there'd be some good stories.
