:: Name Game ::
I've never really named any of my things. I call my camera - well, my camera. My laptop? My laptop. My car is sort of the exception. It has a name, albeit one that I only came up with as a joke and rarely ever use. For most intents and purposes, my car is still called my car.

There are a number of questions swimming in my head, but the one that pops out is this: why? For some reason, the reason behind naming gadgets, vehicles, and other belongings eludes me. Another question: why name some things and not others? Yet another: what makes certain objects worthy of receiving a name?

Yet another bunch of questions is begging to be asked. How does one decide on a name? Are these names gender specific? Heck, do one's belongings have genders? How much does the size of an object affect its name? How about its price or cost? Does it matter if it was a gift?

All of these questions boil down to this: what's in a name?

naming something (or even someone) is a sign of intimate ownership -- even in biblical times this was practiced. i have several friends who do the same... ka edong the blogger has brosia, his trusty cellphone; laura my friend in canada name her cars with brusko, manly names like "bruno" and the like. i do the same too, hehehe. what's the name of your car?

My car is kinda-sorta-maybe named Riddler. If you ask me why, I'll tell you to look at its plates. Though I haven't modified the car, it's also named after an car award for hot rods.

Ah yes... it looks like great minds think alike! As for me, I've written about why I named my laptop "Matus." ;)
