My grand piano's name is Bete Noir (Black beast). My upright is called The Old Piano (not the best/most creative of names but it works).

Haven't named it yet. But I think if I decide to, it would have to be Glenn.

I named my piano before I even got it lol.
I forget how I even got on the idea of naming it, I think my friend may have asked what I was going to call it, and I hadn't even thought of it and just said "Well I'll just call it Wurlitzer I guess." Then I said well I wonder what the person who started the Wurlitzer company's first name was so I googled it, and while searching for his name, I seen the name Benjamin and my friend said call it Benji.
So, I did get the piano a couple days later and so the name is Benji.
I asked my piano teacher if she'd ever heard of anyone ever naming their piano (she's been a piano teacher for a LONG time. My dad went to the same music place to take guitar lessons when he was a kid and she was there then) and she said no.
Sorry for the rambling haha.

Your piano teacher is not aware that her students name their pianos---probably just because they haven't told her ;) I did a little genealogical research on the Steiff family and named my piano after one of the daughters of Chas M. My teacher has no idea

Ah, yes...I name each of my instruments. :)

My spinet piano is "Agatha"
My piano accordion (120 bass) is "Stella"
My cello is "Stanley"
My guitar is "The Dark Knight"
My mandolin is "Earl"
My ukulele is "Luana"
My first violin is "Ungar"
My second violin is "Mason"

I think it adds a lot of personality to the instruments when they are named.
