Back when you were kids or do you still give them names until now? I used to give names to my pillows when i was a kid. I don't it felt like it's some kind of a pet to me.

I don't have names for my pillows but what's weird I don't like to share it with someone.I have several pillows but I have my faves and I get mad when somebody uses it or hugs it.

I'm not really that attached to my pillows even when I was still a kid. I am attached to my stuff toy cow though, that counts right? I use him for a pillow sometimes. His name is Jong Junior, after my boyfriend.

Hehe.. So you love Jong Junior too huh? That counts of course! Anything that's cuddly counts.

Yeah I love Jong junior. Jong and I thinks that Junior is alive. He has his own playmates, clothes, he has a quirky personality and he bites too. lol. (disturbing) He's a substitute hugger since by BF lives in Cebu.

Well this is a cool idea if you want to freak out anyone who will be doing a slumber party in your bedroom, I have two pillows and I'll name them with my 2 exes. lol

when i was a kid, i used treat my pillows as my pets, friends and playmate...it sounds silly but true. I used to treat them as humans and play with them. My mum once think i'm weird because sometimes i would cuddle my pillows and talk to them....and i don't do that to my other stuffed toys or teddies...

that's really cute! i had never heard of this before. i wonder if other kids do this? i remember living in humid Florida and flipping the pillow to the COOL side because it made sleeping easier and felt good against my face. i remember being rather attached to my stuffed animals to the point that i cried the day i had to throw Mr Bunny into the dumpster at the commands of my mother. he had been a part of me since i was a baby chewing on his ear.

When i was a kid, my mom dumped my pillow in the dumpster when i was in school to make sure everything will go smooth. I did look for my pillow and he was gone. He's like a baby ninja to me because his pillow case has a lil hole (..it's where you insert the pillow). Now he's gone and my pillows are nameless and dull. I did name one Hershey because he's got this brown and maroon pillowcase heheh..

ohhh, I have not given names to my pillows, not since I was a kid... Maybe it's fun to do that for a kid.

I never named a pillow. I did have my "rubbery blanket" because the satin like edges were nice to "rub" on, but it was more of a discription rather than a "name." I don't recall anyone if the family naming pillows, toys yes, pillows - no.

No, I have never named my pillows. I am always getting new pillows so there is no need for me to name them.

I never gave names to my pillows, never thought about it until now when I just read your discussion, but since we name our teddies etc I can't see any we can't name our pillows. Well done on bringing it up

I have never heard of any children naming their pillows. Maybe this is because we always had a family pet or two while I was growing up. Needless to say, as an adult I don't name my pillows, either... I still do have pets, though.
