People use lots of inspiration for naming their Kindles--

favorite authors
characters in favorite books
variations on the theme Kindle
places you love
a favorite name of any kind

Sometimes it takes a while for inspiration to hit.

As for how you change the name on a Kindle:

Log into your Amazon Account.
Scroll down to find "Manage Your Kindle."
Find where it says "Your Kindle(s)"
click on "Edit Info" to the right of the Kindle's name
Edit as desired.
Click on Update Your Info.

Voila!

Once you have changed it in your Amazon account, the name will change on your Kindle when you turn the Whispernet on for the first time.

Look around the boards (the search function works well) . . . there are ay least a couple of threads where people talk about what their Kindles are called. You can ignore all the party poopers who say there's no need for a name. :)

There's also a thread in Not Quite Kindle. . .which I think Harvey used as the basis for a blog post. . .that talks about strange names to give it since, when you have Amazon send something to it it says "Sending Wirelessly to. . . .<insert odd name/phrase here>". ScottBooks started it and there are some really funny and creative ideas!

Mine is my Magic Book. . .but in talking about it I generally call it my Kindle.

I changed my. Go into your account, choose manage your Kindle, then where the Kindle is listed, click on the Edit Info button.

You should see this:



and you can change the name and email address. Note that I don't have a serial number yet.

L - I *love* the name Guinea Pig! And it makes for a cute email address too :)

I'm also awfully fond of 'Alex', but that is my cat's name and I already spend enough time wandering around saying "Where is Alex?" so so I won't confuse the situation by naming my Kindle after him :D
