I just named my new Oasis (coming tomorrow) Paul after my late brother. Had to rename my fire KDX 8.9" from Paul to Wilbur.

I have come up with names for my Kindles. My Voyage is Spok (to boldly go...), my Oasis 1 is Scout (after my favorite literary character) and my new Oasis will be dubbed Sheldon (because being the latest and greatest he knows everything!).  :D

I changed the name of my PW to Soon Come, a Jamaican phrase, because I won't be using it as much. My new Oasis is now Wondrous Oblivion, after a movie I really liked and how I feel when reading.

I just named her MOAB, for "Mother of all books".  She's big and beautiful and shiny, and I love her.  I'll love her even more when she has a nice case to keep her warm and snuggly.

Charon or Kharon is the ferryman of Hades.  Being waterproof a reference to something having to do with boats and water seems appropriate.  Could also be Jason or Argo for Jason and the Argonauts.  Cannot get much more classical than references to Greek legendary stories.
