What did you name your nook?

We’ve seen some interesting talk about what people are calling their nooks, and thought it might be fun to have a thread specifically on this topic. … So, what are you calling your nook?

My nook's name is Yotsuba. (Yotsuba is a character in a story I especially like ~ her name translates to mean "four leaves" and is part of a longer phrase ~ yotsuba no kuroba which means four leaf clover) Since my nook worked perfectly, out of the box, and I have not had any deal-breaking problems with it, I thought the name was only fitting. :smileyvery-happy:

I always name my gadgets after astronomical objects, and I chose to call my nook "Pluto" because it's not very large like the former planet, but something you can snuggle up with like the Disney dog.

Regard all phenomena as dreams.

I'm a Feb 1 person, but it will probably be something Twilight or Harry Potter.  If Twilight - either Demetri or Marcus, possibly Sam.  If HP - Severus.

I might change it, but right now it's "Dont touch". A gentle reminder for my girls who can't seem to keep their hands off my things. :smileytongue:

Re: What did you name your nook?

I will be naming my nook Edward.

 

Sadly, one of my numero uno reasons for getting an eReader is so I can read whatever I want in public without people having any idea.  For example, as a closet Twilight addict, I can swoon over Edward Cullen all I want and tell people I'm actually reading Salman Rushdie.

 

HA!  I'm pathetic...

I don't know what I'm going to name mine but for the first 24 hours after I receive it, I'm sure it's name will be "OH MY GOD!"

I hadn't given it any thought until I saw this thread.  My nook's name is Zampano.  Kudos to anyone who get's the reference.

Re: What did you name your nook?

I'm starting to think I should call my nook

'my self-indulgent difficult cranky toy that doesn't work all that well.'

I was able to register my nook but the instructions didn't continue long enough.  I got information about an update on the 'daily' but when I connected the nook to my computer with the cable it started a whole new set of difficulties.  You need to have a place where nook users can go and find simple descriptions about how to use the nook they have.  The 'nook page' on Barnes and Noble is all about ordering a nook and not much if anything about using one.
