I named all my basses. My five string Stingray I bought first when I got back into it after a several years hiatus. I named her Anna, short for anthropomorphism, which encompasses the act of assigning a human name to a inanimate object. I then bought a four string Stingray, and named her Rihanna, because I re-ordered the same brand of bass, and I re-anthropomorphized. Then when I bought my Squire Classic Vibe 50’s style P-bass, I named her Tihanna, since she was the third.
