    Trumpet Names

    My daughter is home from school with some time on her hands and betwenn graduate classes. She wants to know if any of my trumpet geek friends name their horns the way we sometimes name our cars. I have a Hyundai Sonata that she named Moonlight. Get it?
    So I've never named any of my horns. What about the rest of you?
    P.S. I told her to go get a job!

    I've never named any of my horns, but I have a friend who plays viola and she named hers, maybe like Steve or something, so she'd always confuse people by saying she was going to play with steve

    My first comeback trumpet I named Justin Time. Not original, but apt.
    Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.

    In high school, when I first got my silver Strad, i named her Sexy. All the others had cheap student horns, and I had the only silver one. So, of course, mine was the sexiest. :) not too cleaver, i know, but it started as just kind of a joke, and now everyone I went to school with to this day refers to my horn as 'Sexy'.

    Mine is a big apple special edition so sometimes I call it Eve.

    However, my girlfriend doesnt like that to much.

    I haven't named any trumpets, but I trumpet my name!

    I didn't name my horns but I named my music stand, Sh#t.

    Whenever I miss an accidental or key signature change I admonish, Sh#t.

    I am nastier than you. When I pull a trick like that I look at the trumpet player sitting next to me with a sour expression on my face. Works every time.
