i decided to call mine steph.
it's a wierd name for a pump (i wanted to call it hetty), but the name steph/stephanie is very close to my heart. when i got my pump i was having a very bad emotional AND physical time of things, and she was the only person who really believed in me & was the only person who was there every second of every day <3
I'm kinda funny with my names... they have human names... my animas ping, which is pink, is Sophia and my dexcom which sports a pretty pink skin, is Olivia... I don't have kids yet, but those two things demand almost as much attention as a child would so, that's why they're named like they are! LOL
I had a name for my pump in the first day I got her. It's Chica, a Portuguese name, since I am Portuguese. She goes everywhere with me. She takes care of me. She's always with me. She even talks with me, stuff like low insulin, low batteries, ahahahah
