    I thought this was going to be the subject of DavePayn's strange names thread, so I'll ask instead!
    I had a friend who called her euph Esmerelda, and I had a Bartholemew baritone whern I was at school - it seemed like a good idea at the time!!! (Oh, and I called my french horn "that f*******ing thing", but I don't think that counts!)

    So am I the only nutter?

    OMG! Am I your friend? Thats the name of my euph! I have Archibald the trombone.

    My old valve trombone was Weebl, and my very first euph was Wesley. :D

    Oh, and how come you lot are admitting to naming your instrument, but only 1 person has answered yes in the poll? :evil: Be a proud nutter!

    Anyone thought of naming their instrument "A Wrong Note", 'cause then, when the conductor says "Did you play a wrong note . . . ?"
    :wink: :lol: :lol:

    I've not named my horn but I do think of her as a slightly raddled, gin-soaked old tart, you know the one that sits on a bar stool in the pub wearing fishnets and leather mini and calls all the young men "handsome", where the value of young is <45. Croaky voice from years of cheap whisky and fags and tends to get maudlin at closing time.
    No, wait, that's me. :roll:

    most of the names that my trom gets called are unprintable. You know, the names you use when for no apparent reason it splits a note, gets the slide in the wrong position or fluffs a tricky run. :)
