"Rosie", because that is the name of the Jetson's robot maid.

both are the same model (discovery-white). The kids were initially scared of them so we ended up naming them to make them more like part of the family. One is called Sadi (the cleaning lady) and the other Connie.

We named ours ROOMBUG cause obviously it looks like a little bug running around the room. Wonder if those myRoomBud costumes will have a bug one at any time.

I'm still trying to make up my mind. Based on a tradition dating back to when I used to play the Descent series of PC games (which is a game where you're flying a spaceship through mines killing robots and where you have a guidebot that you can name whatever you want) I'm tempted to call mine Hal which is what I used to call my guide bot (and is taken from the name of the psychotic computer from 2001: A space Odyssey). another option is "Tribble" for his bottom side often winds up as furry as one, but like I said I'm not sure which one I wanna go with. One thing is certain though I am very tempted to pick up a second one (maybe a roomba red). In truth, I'd love to have one for every room in the House!

Denis. That's because the cleaner we used to have was called Denis, and the kids know that before Denis comes you have to do a "pre-Denis" clean. Same for the Roomba - get everything off the floor :)

Always liked him as a writer so I thought I would name my robot (Isuc)after him (Isaac Asimov)

Not very original, but we named our first one "Rosie". We just bought a second one for upstairs, which we will probably name "Robbie" (also not very original).

It is our sincere hope that they will take a liking to each other and produce a couple of little Vroombas to clean our car interiors.

Be careful fizzy - you might get a little pink "Woomba"*.

We named ours Jasmin as in Jasmin St. Claire. If you don't know who she is, or what she did -- a quick web search (like at imdb) should help you....


P.S. Thanks for all the great info here -- we're new here, and so is Jasmin.... We love her!

Here's a pic of her....
