After you unpack and begin the initial battery charge of your Roomba (or robot vacuums), one of the first things to do is set up the mobile app.
Inside the app, you have the opportunity to give a nickname to your Roomba. This has many uses, including the ability to use the name when telling Amazon Alexa enabled devices to have the robot clean for you.
Even if your robot vacuum doesn’t work with an app, it’s fun to give it a name.
But coming up with a name can be difficult. So we have created this list to give you some ideas and suggestions for coming up with your own pet name for your Roomba.
How many of them can you recognize where they come from?
Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to yell out a celebrities name followed by “Clean my kitchen!”
- Brad Pitt
- Johnny Depp
- Will Smith
- Matt Damon
- Julia Roberts
- Charlie Chaplin
- Kim, Kourtney, or, Khloe
Why not copy the greats? There have been plenty of Robots in history. From cartoons to Sci-Fi novels and everything in between. Check out these classics.
- Optimus Prime
- Hal (9000)
- M3 Model B9
- DJ Roomba
We know them, we love them and we raise them as our own. Our furry friends can also lead us to name our non-furry floor-huggers.
We all have a favorite character from a book or TV show. Naming our robot after someone in our fandom just makes sense. Mostly.
- The Dude
- Avengers (any by name)
- Harry Potter (entire cast included)
- Captain Ahab
- Forrest Gump
Sometimes, we are just in a weird or creative mood. Okay, sometimes, not so creative. There’s a category for that too. Like these names belong in.
- Sir Cleans-A-Lot
- The Machine
- Cat Carrier
- “That fangled contraption sweeping thingy”
As you can see, the possibilities are near endless. Everything from actual robots to celebrity names. Your Roomba’s name can be anything you want.
You just have to be willing to say it out loud when you need a cleaning cycle done, even if you have guests over.
Do you have a funny or exotic name for your Roomba?
