I'm going to name my basses (Look in my profile for pics). Any ideas?

Note:

5 String - "She" is kind of curvy so we've decided she's a girl bass, so I want a sexy name.

4 String - "He" should balance it out. You know, super tough maybe a Viking name like Ragnar.

Call the 4 string Eric. Eric the (whatever coloured bass it is). Also, stick an appropriate coloured beard on it. Also some horns.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

The First-Act should be named "Oops!" or "Uhh... thanks, mom... *groan*" (you all know exactly what I'm talking about).

The second bass I'd call "Blue 5-String". And it has a middle name - Schecter.

But seriously, I'm no good at naming (functional) names. The only instrument I've ever named and still own is Bill, my 50th Anniversary MIA Deluxe Strat. Everything else I call by either their company name, or model name. I don't have 2 Jazzes - but when I do, I'll call it by the presence of frets, or the artist the sig bass is.

She looks like a slut - I'd call her Suzy. As for him...he's a bit rough around the edges...maybe he should be called Butch.

Incubus and Succubus.

Or, you can name the First Act 'Suck-ubus'.

OK, I'll stop now.

...and the bassist comes up to the EQ and moves all the sliders into the typical smiley face pattern and in a really thick Jamaican accent said "you can't have de bass without de smiley face"

I do, yes, but I know sluts with many names...I just like the name Suzy for a slut. Maybe (with respect to my ex missus) Liz would be a better bet!

come up with something yourself. its not as good from us as it would be from yourself. think of something you like like skating. love that too by the way. and name it after a brand or skater? ehh? its start.

Give the basses a name that makes somewhat of an obscure reference but still relates to their characteristics. For instance:
My Spector Rebop is named Charybdis.
Reference: Homer's epic poem "The Odyssey"
Reasoning (based on characteristics): It's ****ing deep. also, it eats ships.
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

Why don't you call the man bass a prissy name and the female bass a tough name?

Eg. Cecil and Slagathor?
#32
I call my black and white squier Sid im sure you can guess why and I call fender Pearl because the finish reminds me of a pearl

Red Vs. Blue (w00t for me).

Name one of them 'its name is'. Its got everything. Suspence. A fake contration. Plus itll make you look like a douche bag.

I named my bass Roxy cuz when i was thinking of naming it I remembered something that happened recently involving that name. and the name just sounds good.

as for your's, what about aimee? that was gonna be my bass's name if i didnt name it roxy
#36
I give mine first and last names. That gives them so much more opportunity to be themselves.

Black Ibanez Ergodyne - Horatio Obsidian
Natural Stingray - Earnest Irwinicide

Yes. Irwinicide. Pretty much... I'm cutting edge.

why would you name your instrument!? do you talk to your instrument? do you say...hop on ragnar weve got a gig in an hour!

im done


Yes.

Yes, I do talk to my basses.

I refer to them by their names when talking to them, and if somebody does something that offends their respective honors, I force my acquaintance to apologize directly to my basses' faces. I am very protective of both Horatio and Earnest. They are family.

Good day sir.
