I named mine Wally because I irrigate, and when I was a kid, there was a cartoon called Wally Gator.

I call mine the Necessary Evil. I've had it since July 2009 and we're just never going to get along.

Tropicald - Love it, ha! Or I would have to say Sir Poops-a-lot, you know, something along those lines.

I like alliteration, and I am an Adam Sandler fan, so mine is named Stoma Steve.

I call mine Napoleon Stomafart and when it needs emptying, then it is called the privy purse (in the UK, a privy is the toilet).

Just remember, not everyone puts a name to his/her stoma(s).

But mine is a colo called Spignacio "Spitty" NewPooper

I call mine "Little Buddy" for now. Sometimes I can't print the names I call it. I'm sure I will come up with something more original as time goes on.

I call mine "Chucky" like the movie Chuckie. It just keeps chucking LOL LOL. I am a new ostomate and had picked the name out beforehand. Kind of like the birth of a new baby. Good luck everyone!

Mine is named "Ziggy". I am glad to see I am not the only one to name it.

I call mine "Pain in the a.. stomach on my side'.

Mine is Rosie, since she is part of me for life I felt she deserved a name and not just my stoma.

Just a suggestion... You name your bag after people in your life who are "full of crap"...

May 06, 2015 9:53 pm

Come on, Wab. You know if we did that, our stores would have more names than a royal. Let's just keep it simple, one to a stoma.

Lol...yes; the Kiss formula...good idea...however...I have no idea what I would call does one choose a name for it...where does one start...someone said he called their stoma Mick Jagger...because his stoma reminded him of Mick Jagger's look at mine and is a miracle...I am needs no name...

I call it "My Shit Hole", only when I am with my husband. We haven't come up with a name while in public. I have had my colostomy for about six years now. Had a liver transplant 8 years ago, then developed anal, tongue, and right lung cancers due to the "rejection meds" I have to take the rest of my life for the transplant. My husband has been so supportive through all this, even helps with the "bag changes"! We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary last month (Dec. 7th)!!! I am so blessed to have a wonderful soul mate!!!!
