Do you name your appliances?
I am currently researching names given to household and office objects for a study at the University of Mainz, Germany. It would be of great help if you could fill out my questionnaire on http://namesurvey.net - if you could share the URL with others, that would be great too, of course. I only ask about the object's names in the questionnaire, not about your names or contact details. The survey is anonymous and only for research purposes (in the field of onomastics).
Here is a link that might be useful: namesurvey.net
