I have both Nook Classic and NookColor. The Classic has a place in settings where you can name your Nook. I couldn't find any such setting on the Color. Am I just missing it?

I named mine Nookums.
But it doesn't come when I call.
I was thinking....Rover? Spot? Little NC (think like rapper-ish Bow Wow)? All kinds of possibiltiies. Can I also get my NC to salute me when I wake it from sleep? What about flashing me some gang signs or a secret handshake? Just exploring the possibilities...
I was thinking of a domain name to register: www.firmwarefantasies.com

You can name it "unofficially" by changing the name of the drive when it's plugged into your PC. In Windows in Computer or My Computer, it will have "Nook Color" next to the drive letter. You can change that to anything you want. Windows will remember it and always show that as the name of your NC when you plug it into the USB port, but the name won't show up anywhere on the NC itself.

My NC is named Oliver.
I did not name my toaster or my fridge...thanks for reminding me. I feel just terrible about neglecting them! ( I'm thinking Tommy Toaster and Freddy Fridge?)
I call my husband's Honda 'Carmichael'...guess why. My car? 'Bluebelle'. (guess why)

My car? 'Bluebelle'. (guess why)

I have named every car I have ever owned. LOL! I have never named my electronic devices, although I would often like to call them various notsonice names when they don't cooperate.......
Unfortunately, not only can you not name it, you apparently can't un-name it! My hubby and I use the same BN account and even though it was under my email address, it had his name. My store says Tim's Nook and it most definitely does not belong to Tim! I spent many hours when I first got it trying to fix this to no avail, but I haven't tried anything since the 1.1 update. Hmm, maybe I'll go see if that little problem got fixed........

If you figure out how to do this, please post!! I have the same trouble and neither tech support nor anyone in the store has been able to resolve it for me.

You can not name your Nookcolor. You can not name your refrigerator, your toaster, or your bong.
What is wrong with you people?!
Or your bong? Interesting choice of words from someone that spent her three posts attacking people makes me wonder what are your habits?
Perhaps during the next software update, that Nookcolor gets naming ability because the nook already has that.
