    I feel terrible that I've had my pump 6 years and have not named it!

    Parenting fail :(

    Penelope pump. This is because it is pink (so needed a girls name) and I wanted a posh(er) sounding name as I consider having a pump a luxury. Her nickname is pumpalina.

    Have I thought about this too much????

    If I ever manage to get a pump I will probably call it willie will he work to make me better or will he work to make me bad! But perhaps I will wait to see what name it's looks like when it arrives a bit like children , sometimes they look like a name!
