Does your Egg have a name?

I've realized that my mini is a female - haven't gotten to know my large well enough to be able to name it or assign a sex to it. But my mini seems to answer to the name Eggbertina.

Anyone else name their egg?

    Yes my eggs are

    Boomer - Large
    Sooner - Medium

    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!

    Both of mine came with names... Large and Mini. Neither has a sex. They are grills.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • If I named my egg I would never hear the end of it!!! :laugh:
  • XL is "midori" (green in Japanese)

    never named the medium

    I certainly don't name most things in my kitchen - but some things just seem to have a presence that demands it!

    it takes me 6 months to name a dog, not even going to try and name an egg :laugh: after six months with my first german shepard i gave up and let the neighbors kids name him :laugh: :laugh: here rootie tootie :laugh: my second dogs name is abe, abaco, abels, abraham, abnormal, shorty, budhabelly, chunkey monkey and sandwiches, he is ten and i still havent picked out what to call him
  • I just call all my pets spike now. Hard to keep the differrent names straight in middle age :laugh:

    The hazard of having so many eggs I guess! But if you could get that new Extra Large - I'd bet it would have a name of it's own!

    Kind of like the litany I go through when calling one of the cats - here "Widgit, Sam, Toby... whatever the f*** your name is". Middle age does suck!

    Stephen is that like when you make people not eat till you shoot a picture of it? Your wife has something to say??????????????
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I thought of Snow green and the seven dwarfs but can't remember their names. :laugh:

    No, its just Large, Medium, and Small.
  • The XL is Fatman and the Med is Littleboy
  • gdenbygdenby Posts: 5,935
    I usually just call 'em One and Two. For awhile it was Vesuvio and Mauna, with hopes that a small St. Helen would pop up, but the chemistry didn't work. :lol:
  • Mine sure does.....

    Her name is Christine.....after the infamous 57' Chevy in Steven King's thriller ;)

    If she were to fall and break or get vandalized she'll just morph herself right back into a new egg again B)

    By the way....I got "the look" when I told my wife her name....I told her to be nice or Christine might start burning her food!!!
  • THAT explains why you called me that all weekend. i thought you were having a stroke
  • Well let's see there is Humpty (XLBGE) who had a great fall and was put back together again.

    There is Miss Penny (SBGE), Miss Mini (Mini BGE)

    There is Six ( BSG fan and she was my Sixth Egg)

    Then are the larges - USN, USMC, USARMY, USAF, USCG and the nameless one. I am thinking of naming it America, but maybe I'll just have a naming contest.
  • My egg has no name but my two year-old daughter calls the egg table daddy's crib. Example: My ball went under daddy's crib.
  • I like that. I suppose our egg is named "Owwie-hot" as in, "No, Elly, you can't come out on the porch right now. This is HOT...owwie hot."
  • At the Chicken Ranch all the ranch hands, including my Girls, have names. At least alias's. Don't want no trouble with the Law.

    My Girls include Lily Large, Shirley Small and Maggie Mini. They work away from the Big House in The Coop. They love to entertain big hunks and little squirts alike. In fact, they've been fondly mentioned on CNN.

    When my Girls are working I turn on the Girls Working light.



    Here's some of the other familiar staff.

    Miss Mona, Ginny-Virginia, Rodney Dangerbird (retired now)and Hazel Hortense.


    There's also Larry Ropa (retired) and Capt. McCool (currently in charge of Ranch Security).

    Then there's Reggielette Regina, a handsome gal with a huge pair of gourds. She's fenced in and velcro'd to the counter but still full of it.

    Yes, I suppose you could say the Chicken Ranch is a fun place. We do.

  • Bubba = XL
    Junior = medium

    The future mini will be squirt!

    Eggers Prayer-

    Our egg, which art in sizes, hallowed be thy smoke, thy will be grilled, at home as it is at eggfest. Give us this clay our daily brisket and forgive us our rubs, as we forgive those who gas grill against us, and lead us not to flashback but deliver us from overnighters. For thine is the grill, the smoke, the egg. Let's eat!

    Gros coco = big eggie
  • We call the large "R2"

    As an inside joke, my wife and I have named my Egg after one of my female co-workers who has a reputation as a bit of a home wrecker :laugh:
  • MikeeMikee Posts: 831
    Spend too much time with the egg and the wife will eventually give it a name and more than likely she will name it during an arguement. It'll come out like 'since you love _ _ _ _ so much, see if she'll 'f' you tonight. :laugh:
  • Well thanks for asking, our first hatch is a large and we call him Big Daddy.
    The second hatchling is a medium and we call him Suitcase, as he travels with us. This is a picture of him in action in NC.
    The third hatchling is a mini and we call her Piglet and yes she goes wee-wee-wee-wee all the way home.
    Here she is in action at the FL Mini Fest a few weeks ago.
    Thanks for asking and looking.

  • Bad move...that leaves her open to a comparison of her cooking vs. the egg's.
