Pretty straight forward question... But to make it more interesting, let's add the "what" and story behind why you named your axe what you did. I'll start;
I've named one of four. I named her Raby. The reason being that she's a very important person in my life, so much so that I'd rather give up music before her. After naming her, I felt like she has a life of her own.
So, Pit, what's your collection like?
#2
Yeah, she's called Jessica after my first girlfriend 3 years ago (she's the one that named her).

No. I might give it a nickname that I refer to on occasion, but not an actual name.

We had a girl in year 12 at my school who said "If you blow on it, it's a boy, if you use your fingers to play it, it's a girl".....I called this Gaby's lay, after her

Decided that since she was Spanish, all my guitars were to be named sexy Spanish names :P So i called one Lolita and the other Gabriela (after the girl who said Gaby's Law)

I have yet to name anything I own. It's all called by it's brand, like Axl, Epiphone, Fender, etc. Though, I call my computer "piece of shit", if that counts for anything.

Nope. My guitars are just like symbiotes. Carnage, Venom, take your pick.

I have a guitar called 'tiny tim' because I got it with no identifying marks on it at all and the word 'tim' lightly etched into the clearcoat underneath where the pickgaurd would have been. also its like a 23' scale.
no sir away a papaya war is on

My hummingbird is called Cecil, because it looks like a country, warm, calm guitar, and Cecil sounds like a guy who has knowledge, country, and a good companion. and my Ibanez is called Moshiro, purely because i mosh with it and ibanez reminds me of a japanese guitar so mixed mosh with a japanese word so Moshiro!
#14
I named her "Dawn." If you're cool enough, you'll understand it.

Yea, I named it Search Bar.

You too?!?!?!?!!
I pride myself on my humility.

This reminds me of someone's sig that they named a guitar after their girlfriend. Something about a fat neck and miscellanous other common flaws with guitars and women.
OT: I named my new guitar "Red Special" as it looks like a Burns Brian May model but not exactly the same thing.

Nope. Well kind of, but they're more nick names than actual names. My Fender is "the good bass", my Ibanez bass is "the shit bass", the Squier is "the Strat", the acoustic is "the shitty acoustic", and the Ibanez guitar is "the slightly less shitty guitar".

As you can see, I'm fairly unhappy with my instruments.
#23
I only name the guitars I've built, and I name them after female friends of mine. I also usually stylize/finish it with that person in mind. They seem to think it's sweet.

For example, Adriana is a quilt-top PRS Custom 24 style guitar. I told her I'd stain it her favorite color, she picked blue. Love this guitar.

Ashton is an ash Stratocaster (for obvious reasons). She told me to pick a color, I asked her if I could use her eye color. Result was a translucent but deep emerald lacquer. Went with a rosewood fretboard.

And lastly, Kat (short for Katerina) is a pretty traditional cherry SG but with a custom inlay in the shape of the SG batwing pickguard, the inlay looks like a stained glass window.

What if its an instrument that you blow in but also use your fingers with? (trumpet, flute, clarinet, etc) shemale? hermaphrodite?
