Your iPod's Name?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I was thinking that I'm probably not the only one to name my iPods. I was curious what you call might have named them.

My 2G 10GB iPod was "White House" because of its color and the fact that it housed all of my music.

My 4G 40GB is "Galleria" for it's ability to hold large amounts of pictures.

My 5G 60GB is "Chez Noir" as a throwback to the first iPod's name and because it sounds cool.

Okay, so I'm a bit bored at work today...

Dude!

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I was really creative. I renamed my 60GB iPod photo "iPod60".

Well, at least I have "E pur si muove" engraved on the back.

You know, this reminds me... My iPod has been out in my car for a long time without getting synched up with my newest music. I should do something about that.

I named my the Chocolate Factory... The music is like candy... And I named my computers hard drive Willy Wonka... So they go together very nicely..

Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker...

"Bad Motherf*cker", for all those Pulp Fiction fans out there.

Ok not really... my iPods are:
Craig's mini and Craig's nano. Perhaps I should take my own suggestion though and give them better names.

I named my computer God so that a) it would show up on the network as god and b) when i lock someone's computer with remote desktop, it says "Screen Locked by God"

So, i found it fitting to call my iPod, "God's iPod"

No, I don't speak french and I didn't look it up. I did know that chez is house and noir is black. I also remember from 7th grade french class that a descriptor such as a color follows what it's describing. So it was more of putting the pieces of the language that I know -- which is very little -- together for the end result.

Very nice. It caught my attention because generally people that don't speak french don't know too much about the word "chez". Too bad you don't speak french, I was kind of hoping to find someone to talk to so that I could stay sharp over the summer.

What!?

Chez means "at the place of".
Maison is "house".

Chez moi means "at my place".
Chez Jacques means "at John's place".

"Black house" is Maison noir.
Chez noir is "at black['s place]" which doesn't make any sense, except poetically, perhaps.

From what I learned in my french classes, I thought "chez" could be interpreted a couple of ways depending on context. With "chez" meaning something like "courtesy of" or "hosted by". I also thought "house" was implied in the meaning of "chez". If I am completely wrong please correct me.

I'm not exactly a native speaker, but I've never seen "chez" used as a noun.

Neither have I. I must be completely off my rocker. So how much french do you speak?

Seeing as I'm pondering moving to Montréal permanently, too little. I had about 6 years of learning. Got excellent grades at first but my interest waned. That was about half a decade ago, though; by now, I'm more interested again.

I couldn't have said the above in French.

Je ne pourrait pas dire le prochaine* en Français.

*) I guess that's "next", not "previous".

I'm really terribly out of practice and need some geeky way to learn.

I called mine: "Sir Evan C. King's iPod"

But now I feel dumb about the name. \

But one time I did change a couple of the ones at the apple store to things like jesus jPod when I was bored.
