Style: Aikido / FMA / Krotty
When I started FMA last year, I was kind of excited buying my first pair of sticks, so when they arrived, I named them (Pride & Prejudice).
I've since continued the tradition, but have been getting through sticks at a hell of a rate, and am running out of names.
So, two-pronged (shitty) thread.
Can you come up with some awesome names for my next few pairs.Does anyone else name their weapons? What weapons, and what kind of names? Nick-names for your fists and feet would be cool too if you have them.
P.S. Naming your Jo "Joe", or your Ken "Ken" doesn't count.
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!

1. Call your sticks "War" and "Peace", if only because it sounds classy.
2. I had a friend who named his shinai "Leeroy", as in Leeroy Jenkins of WoW fame, and another friend who named his "Tom Cruise" after watching The Last Samurai. The worrying thing is that both of them wrote it on the shinai itself; something they both got a proper roasting for from their Kendo instructor!

I named my left fist "Law", and the right one "Order"
Cro Cop named his right foot "Hospital" and the other "Cemetary" (no explanation needed).

Style: Aikido, bits of jits
1. Jack Johnson and Tom O'Leary if you like old boxing or Anchorman
2. I don't name training weapons, except for "the stick with red tape" and "the stick with blue tape" for the two short FMA sticks. (Cheap sticks + tyre practise - tape = splinters)
