After about 15 minutes of staring at the virtual keyboard trying to come up with a name, I ended up just pressing the 123 button and than the special-characters button. Suddenly I was struck with inspiration and called my nook: "(>O.O)> <(O.O<)"

My 17 year old daughter refused to call it a nook because my husband had ordered the nook for my christmas gift and I knew about it. (She believes that all Christmas presents should be a surprise.) If we talked about it she would call it a Knick-Knack. So, I named it Knick-Knack because of her.

I am in the class of 1/15 so I don't have mine yet, but when it does finally arrive I will name it "Mímisbrunnr," the well of Mimir where Odin sacrificed his eye for knowledge, of course all I sacrificed was $$.

Cornelius M. Hippleburg. Me and my 9-year old son were out running errands one day when someone asked him what his name was and he responded with a serious face, "Cornelius M. Hippleburg!" His name is nowhere close to that! I figure nobody else in the world would be using that for their Nook nickname.

Since my Nook - which arrived yesterday!!! - was a Christmas present, its name is Christmas. I might change it as ideas for other names present themselves...

I'm thinking Jane. Very boring but it's from my favorite book. Jane Eyre. But it may change once I get my nook in my hands. It's scheduled to be shipped Jan 11. Only 10 more days!

I was going to name it "my significant other" when it arrives but decided thats just sad.
Plus, what would my wife think. I'll name her my LieBerry

I will have mine in my hands after school on Monday (it would have been today but the mail carrier a) came BEFORE 9AM...on a SATURDAY! (seriously, who does that???????) and b) didn't wait less than 2 minutes for me to pull on pj pants and a sweatshirt and bolt down the stairs and to the door (curses not having a building with a buzzer intercom system!!), so I got the nasty orange "get it yourself at the post office" slip in my mailbox. SAD FACE!!!! (I'm currently referring to the USPS as the US Postal Lack-of Service...besides this, the idiot I spoke with on the phone was of no assistance as he kept saying there was really nothing he could do.) But for now I'm thinking...
Ripley the nook
Mainly after one of my best friend's band Ripley - and often referred to online as Ripley the band.
It may end up being Emily or Diana though. We'll see.
