My bow came with a name. It's Outback. Mathews Outback. I don't think it has a middle name.

I felt compelled to chime in(and somewhat honored, I think)  I don't know how it started but everything has a name. 
 
I had a red F-150 appropriaptely named "Red"
 
I had a F-150 Harley Edition pick up named "Vader" (I had black outs on the head lights and the truck has a huge black valance which made the front end look like Darth Vader)
 
Mountain bike named "Dutch"
 
Car named "Percy"
 
.30-06 named "Roland" (the gunslinger - anybody know the reference?)
 
PSE Stinger (new) - named "Clarice" - everyone knows that one??  Silence of the Lambs
 
My quad, KFX400 named "Alice"
 
 
Most names come out of a reference, I'm a dork, I get it.

.30-06 named "Roland" (the gunslinger - anybody know the reference?) --Stephen King Dark Tower Series. Never did finish reading those[:o]

I could'nt name my bow. I bought it used. If it had a name before I might have confused it by calling it something else.[;)] LOL

Great posts! I thought I'd never admit this but I named my Mathews Q2 after the Nuge. I call it the "Thwackdaddy" because I've shot so man deer with it. [:)]

Actually, my bow has named ME.
 
It affectionally refers to me as "deep pockets"......

Never really thought about it before, but I think "Krueger" would be a good name. I'm hoping my 82nd Airborne is a deer's worst nightmare.

The original post mentioned my bow was a she.  A little more explanation on that is in order now.  I raced motocross for many years when I was younger and as I met my wife she "came to grips" with my obsession at that time.  She always (as many women do) referred to my bike as the "other woman" based on the amount of time I spent doing it.  So needless to say, the purchase of my bow has spawned a new obsession and a female designation.  
 
I must say this is one of the most interesting threads I've been a part of, hopefully we can continue to chat about our idiosyncrasies, they're usually quite fascinating.
