    Let me know when you see the theme. :P

    First came Betty - the 1913 Model 27 treadle. She just seemed like a Betty.
    Next, the 1950 FW, I figured she'd be Betty's friend, but sometimes rival for my attention, so her name is Veronica, Ronnie for short.
    Midge was next, she's the 1950 FW that I recently sold.
    Moose, the 1936 15-91, who will push through almost anything...
    Archie was next, he was a thrift store find, the 1958(?) 403A. He was supposed to be my main machine. I ended up selling him when I got the 401A and the 503J. I figured there were too many of the one type, and I can't use them all, I don't actually sew all that much, in fact.
    Alice was next. She's the 1889 VS2. Predecessor to the Model 27,... naturally, she should be Mrs Cooper, Betty's mom....
    After that I fell off naming them for a bit, but the 1950 99K was named Jelly Bean.

    The question I have is, can you reuse names? Archie and Midge are gone but not forgotten, but different machines have assumed their roles...
