Name that iPod – a summer contest

I had no idea.

According to Sue of Inner Dorothy, my iPod needs a name. Her iPod is named Surely.

I’m ashamed to admit that when iTunes asked me to name my iPod, I labelled it with the incredibly lame and pedestrian “Dani’s iPod”. Now that I’ve been enlightened by Sue, I’m all over the idea of christening my iPod like stink on a diaper.

But what name is worthy of my little electronic bundle of joy? Something clever, something original, something snazzy? Well, at least something that’s not going to get my poor little iPod mocked on the playground by all the other cool iPods, at least.

And that’s where you, dear friends, come in. You’ve proven time and again that you are more witty than me by half, and twice as clever. Welcome to the “Name that iPod” summer contest. I’ll take your suggestions through the end of the week, and on Friday, I’ll put up a poll and you can vote for the best name. If you can’t make the comment box work, and a couple of you have mentioned that you can’t, send me an e-mail.

Did I mention there will be prizes? Prizes! I’m still feeling inspired by the sugar rush of the great candy swap of 2006, so the clever person who suggests the winning name will have not only the prestige of knowing you christened my beloved new iPod, but I’ll send you a gift pack of personally selected candy as well.

It’s like Rockstar Supernova and Big Brother and Canadian Idol, all wrapped up into one bloggy contest, isn’t it? Not so much? Oh well, at least you get the chance for some free candy.

So get on it. What’s my iPod’s new name?

My thought process here is that it’s something you use to give yourself a break. In fact, I see you sitting on the floor in the middle of a chaotic kitchen simply tapping your toes and nodding your head to the beat as the world falls apart around you.

Carrie Ann iPod.
Because maybe Apple will sponsor it as an advertising campaign.

Okay, I’m going with Cherie (short for Cherie Amour). I put way too much thought into this. I know, get a life. You see, I went back to an earlier post you did about your I-pod and how much you loved it.. you said ‘I heart my I-pod’. Which got me thinking about the word ‘love’ in French, because you study French.
I, then, started thinking about the year we were born and looked up the top 10 songs of 1969, and guess what? My Cherie Amour was #4! That did it.
Like I said, I need to get a life.
And I love candy way too much!

My Creative Zen (cos I’m not cool enough for an iPod) is called Sickboy, after the character in Trainspotting. Between my closest net friends and I, we have some interesting names for our mp3 life support machines.
My friend Lucinda’s is called Rivers, a) because it is an iRiver and b) because that’s the name of one of her favourite characters in a book called Regeneration.
My friend Lily’s is also called Sickboy, because she has an unhealthy obsession with Jonny Lee Miller (He’s also in the film version of Regeneration – confused yet?)
My friend Hayley’s is called Charlie, after a character in Velvet Goldmine.
My friend Viky’s is called Adam, because Adam Green was the first thing it played.
The sad thing is, if one of us says ‘Oh, X is effing up’ or ‘Oooh, X played The Vines then The Strokes today!!’ we all know exactly what we’re referring to…
