I’ve seen various people mention the names of their Glowforges, and thought it might be great to gather the names people are using here! (There’s a separate thread about unused names for ideas if you don’t have one.) If there’s a story behind it, post that too.
After some debates with the kids, we named our GF the Maxim 59. It’s from the “Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries” in Howard Tayler’s Schlock Mercenary comic universe. Maxim 59 states, “Two wrongs is probably not going to be enough,” which is appropriate given how much experimentation and “corrections” we think we’ll be doing!
Other contenders were:
- Maxim 1 (“Pillage, then burn” but we don’t want to burn things with the GF)
- I Haz a Lazor (The 9 year old loved this.)
- Maxim 34 (“If you’re leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun”)
- Death Floof (nickname for a polar bear; the kids like the “death” association)
So, what did you name your GF, and why?
