Default What did you name your sewing machine!

I named one of my machines .. "old bessie" not sure why it just seemed fitting. The newer ( 20 years old) I never named , maybe I was not sure I was going to like her/him. Did you name your machine ? and how did you pick the name?

I named two of my machines: I have a Viking 230 mechanical sewing machine. I named her "230". It fits.
My newest machine is a Viking Quilter 11 computerized machine, Her name is Quilters Dream. Because she was a fulfillment of my dream to own her one day. Kathleen

My APQS longarm is Matilda for the song "Waltzing Matilda" because working with her is like dancing and I love the music she makes when the Intelliquilter is running.

My first machine- a Singer-named her Faith. I had faith she was going to help me in my new creative endeavors!
My Pfaff- Sarah. It means princess.
My HQ LA machine- Hannah. It means grace. I need lots of that when doing these projects!
My FW-Bella. Cuz she's so pretty!
My 301 2-tone- Savannah. Like the name.

Too many to name, so I just refer to them by their make and model number, or, "mother's old machine" or "the 99 I painted," or "my old Kenmore." DH is not at all interested in my machines, so we don't have much occasion to discuss them.

I have a Juki 600 and his name is Colin so when people want me to do something that takes me away from sewing day or time, I just say sorry I already commited my day to hanging with Colin, oh yeah and Colin Farrell is hot! I was going to name her kitt but so much more fun to be hanging with Colin. LOL

My brother machine is named JOY due to the amount of joy my family and friends get from my use. . .my kids call it Harry Potter because of the embroidery part where it sews by itself.

I haven't named my Bernina; but I named my featherweight "Quiltie" because I use it only for piecing quilt tops.
