    My older pedal hp doesn’t have a name.My Thimothy Storm King was named Cate Blanchett because I performed elizabethan music on the first concert with her.My new Venus,very impressive huge sound,was named Waltraud Meier,my favourite wagnerian singer.

    My lap harp is named Nandelle, meaning little harp in elven (as in The Lord of the Rings).

    My lap harp is named Roisín, which means “little rose” in Irish. I thought it was fitting because it’s made of rosewood, and because it has little rose carvings on it. My new Elysian Hempson 34 is named Elyssa, after Elysian and a character in my favourite book series.

    This response comes a little late – I only noticed your question now as I was looking through the threads I’ve replied to.
    My favourite book series is the Deverry series by Katharine Kerr. It’s set in a Celtic fantasy world, and is written so beautifully and with such intricate characters and plots I just love it!

    I didn’t know about naming your harp until a fellow harper asked me what I had named mine. Then I decided to go on a soul search to find some fitting names. Decided on Ceriddwen for my 33 string

    You know, I’ve thought about the naming of harps and I even sometimes call mine “The Beast” when I start to haul it around. The thing is, giving it a name (just my opinion ofcourse) makes it, if you will, an individual.
