My Kindle Paperwhite's name is Mr. Fine, after Larry Fine from the Three Stooges. What about your Kindles?

My Keyboard is Gandalf from the The Hobbit.
My Paperwhite is Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII
My Fire HD 8.9 is just plain old Fire at the moment, just got it a few days ago.

The same thing I named all my other KIndles back to the beginning, I just switch the name over when I get a new one: Memory Alpha

My Fire is named Memory Prime.

Star Trek forever!

I named my Paperwhite, "Aitrus" from Myst: Book of Ti'ana. Perhaps one of my favorite book characters ever. :)

I don't name inanimate objects, but one time when my KK was having problems and wouldn't reboot, I moaned "My precious!"

Ha! Mine is Thorin because I got it just after Richard Armitage was cast as Thorin. The Hobbit was, quite deliberately, the first Kindle book I purchased :D

My Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is called "Something more important" because I wanted to spend some money on something more important.

My first Paperwhite is called "And yet another Kinde" because I bought another Kindle.

My second Paperwhite is call "Kindle Klone" because it is a clone of the first Paperwhite.

I can't remeber the name of my Kindle Keyboard. I am not getting anymore kindles when the new ones come out. I have too many already.

How do you name them?

@Suzy: Tap the three black bars in the top right-hand corner when you're at the home screen, then tap "settings," then tap "device options," then tap "personalize your Kindle," then tap "device name" and wallah, you can give your Kindle a name.

@Bixillarla and Snoozy: I thought about naming mine after a character in Middle-earth but I just couldn't think which one I wanted. But I would have picked a bad guy.. maybe Morgoth haha.

Good morning Joannie and everybody
I have named my kindle "my precious" too. I am just awfully clutching and obsessed by the wonderful "otherness", the "Windows on the world", the way to learn and be entertained, collect, talk (I hope so much that it is to warm-hearted people) and just learning about the classic radio and film I can get. There you are, you can see......It really is "my precious".

My first KK was (is) named deBricassart, after the character in The Thorn Birds, which was the first "grown up" novel my mom let me read, circa 1980.

My "back-up" KK is named Kindelabra. No explanation. Don't have one.

My PW is named PerryWinkle. P.W.

The Fires are unimaginitively named Folina's Fire, Boy's Fire, Girl's Fire.

The boy's BK is named BERD. Boy's Electronic Reading Device.

The girl's BK is named Kevin.

"If Found: 888-xxx-xxxx" is the name of my Kindle.

I figure it gives me a bit better chance of getting it back if I leave it at the coffeeshop or on the airplane.

These may not be the actual names on the screen, but just what people call their Kindles.

Mine have official names on my account because they have to have a name, but I don't refer to them by those names.

My Paperwhite is Buttercup, Fire is Inigo, DXG is Fezzik, before I gave it away, my Basic was Vizzini. My K2i that my mom has is Imzadi.

I just say, "book", and my kids say, "You mean your KINDLE?" Oh, shut up. Clean your rooms.

Kids -- you have to educate them, but then this kind of thing happens!
