Guitar Naming Conventions

I got this idea from someone on the AxeFx forum, but like all good ideas it's worth stealing. He named his guitars after his influences. I don't know why it never occurred to me before. Many guitarists name their guitars with female names which is cool in one way, but becomes a problem if you have more than one and it's not named after your significant other. So with that in mind, my guitars are going to be called:

(by the way, there will be no explanation. you either understand, or you don't)

Jimmy - Les Paul Custom
Eric - Strat (do not ask which Eric, sheesh)
Eddie - Suhr Modern. (If I ever get around to buying an EVH model guitar, then this will be renamed Brian based on the color)
Tommy - PRS Acoustic
Geddy - Jazz Bass

Swiss - JT Variax
