    Oh my! the only names I call my machine are not printable! and that is when it misbehaves and causes me great frustration.

    I'm trying to think of a name for mine and I'm thinking about naming her "Florance Ida Katherine" after my mother.

    And does anyone refer to their sewing machine as a "he" ?
    It's just that these machines each seem to have their own personalities...this one is fussy about this...that one refuses to do that...can't let anything with a personality go without a name! LOL

    My featherweight is painted Plum Crazy purple , so her name is Mrs. Peacock after the lady in the Clue game. My big Singer is Queenie , because she is the boss of the sewing room and so very beautiful. My others don't have names yet.

    Charlee,
    I agree, that is why I name the machines. The other vintage machines I haven't had a chance to work with are patiently waiting.
    Here is my list of vintage machines that I use:

    Davis NVF #1: Penny
    Davis NVF#2: Jade
    National Two Spools: Mr. Cowboy
    Eldredge Two Spools: Melinda, she is married to Mr. Cowboy
    Singer 15-90: Jasmine
    Singer 328K: Hank the Tank
    Singer 201: Starr
    Singer 66-1: Thistle Marie
    Singer 66-1: Lily
    Singer FW 221: Heather

    I love how y'all came up with Ruby and Big Bertha! I was afraid my Elly was going to have her name in common with 3999 other machines. I just figured she would be the only one in my house so I went with it anyway!
    Everyone has great names for their machines. I think we name them because we love them like they are our kids. I even buckle mine up when they go for a ride!
