In need of a name

A belated post of sorts yep, but I was lucky enough to be given this beautiful vintage record player as a Christmas gift.

She was generously given to me by someone special whom not only tracked her down, but painstakingly restored her; taking her to bits and soldering, de-rusting her amongst more laborious tasks I’m sure. She now plays like a dream, with authentic, heart-warming crackles to boot.

There’s only one problem – she’s in need of a name. Charming as the restorer is, he affectionately called her Barbara, but I’m not sure that’s quite right – you know when you just can’t get that one ‘Barbara’ you know out of your head?

Penny is the name that I keep umming and ahhing over, yet I’m not entirely sold on that either so I’m opening this up to you.

What should this crimson beauty be named? Suggestions encouraged below…
