An informal (silly) poll: So, how many of you name your starters?

An informal (silly) poll: So, how many of you name your starters?

I always laugh at the names folks give their starters. Floyd won't name his, but I think he may be in the minority.
How many of you name your starters, and if you do, "who" is sitting in your fridge right now?

Even though my starter is alive, I've never had the urge to give it a name. If I did, I would probably call it The Yeastie Boys. :)

Ah, yes... Buster is about to have a sibling. Buster is a white flour starter, so named because he is so energetic and was always busting out of his container. I am working on a whole wheat flour starter in preparation for a lot of whole grain bread testing. This one will be named once I find out what it's nature and sex are...

I also name my kefir grains. They are just as alive and active as Buster.
