    Please Name this Machine! I need help

    Here is a vintage Japan 15 clone... I bought it just because..... no reason. I think I was going to use it for spare parts.... Well I have been pulling all my machines out and I wiped it down for the dust. Well it must of be taken care of and stored in a very nice area.... I decided to plug it in and omg, it's running so smooth and quiet I just may have to use it.. But I am lost on a name..... it is metalic baby blue and all shiney chrome... I can not come up with a name ! The only two names that came to mind were Georgie and Peter! Could it be a male?? What do you think?

    With a brand name of "Soverign" King George, King Charles, there's always Charlemagne...
    Pretty machine!

    Love it! Have 2 just like it - a full sized "White" and a 3/4 sized "Elna" and....I forget what I named them when I brought them home! LOL

    .......why don't you go with the Sovereign theme - Elizabeth ( LIzzie) Victoria, Mary etc ....or Henry, Edward ( Eddie) or if we want to jump over Chuck, who might never make it to the throne anyway :-) you could call it William, Wills or Willy or Katherine (Kate) who will be Queen.

    Really nice machine. I have never heard of the name "Soverign". I think Georgie sounds goods.

    Well I have a 99 that I converted to a hand crank and he informed me his name was Jack! Now all my other machines have been girls ie Mykenzie, Salley, Elizabeth, etc. But he was definately a boy. I like King George or just King. Just sew on him for a while and he will tell you what his name should be.

    Hi, don't post much - but read a lot. When I saw this machine I thought immediately BlueBelle. I'd call her Belle.
    By the way, I just moved from Easton, PA last Feb! So I guess I'm feeling a double connection to you.
    Blessings!

    My husband thinks the name should be Suki. Is it a 15 or a 201?

    What about Peter the Great? It is possible to be a male because it is blue and also there are a lot of great tailors in the world.
