I know a lot of people here are very attached to your lights. I met a flashaholic yesterday who names his flashlights, and I was wondering if that's a common thing. Do you name your flashlights? Why?

Nope, not flashlights.... as much as I might love them, the only emotional attachment I have to them is the fact that I would be out a substantial amount of cash if I lost them.

Well, I guess that I'm part of the majority..
I also voted "No, their only tools."
I'm new to the passion of flashlights, and new to the forums as well.
The thought never even occurred that I could name it, I just call my light by the model number that it is, and that is the TK45.

They aren't just tools to me; I like to play with them, modify them, and keep them looking good. They are something I really enjoy, but I wouldn't have thought to name them. The last possession that I considered naming was my mountain bike. I never did name it, but I only have a few bikes, whereas I have a ton of flashlights... I guess they are too numerous and don't have as much "presence" as a bike, so I wouldn't be inclined to give them names.

Oh yes, I name all my flashlights, feed them with batteries and even put them pampers on against leaking batteries...

I've gotta say that this is one of the more, errr, eccentric threads I've seen. For those who actually have a life, the job of naming each new purchase would be just a little too odd, IMHO. You give the damned things a name, and what's next? A christening? Birthdays? Sheesh!

I named my Surefire E1B Backup Little Nuts.... I felt it was fitting.

I refer to my RA 170T as "Ra". That count? :nana:

My girlfriend calls my:
TK10: TK10
Jetbeam RRT2: Jetbeam
Olight M30: Olight
Olight SR90: SR90
Ra 170T: Ra

Off the top of my head that's the only names (if you can call them names!) to my lights.
