    I'm bored and trying to stave off sleep (don't ask)...

    Not really. But I have a suggestions for yours:
    Favor or Union.

    Peace favor your sword,

    I have a couple of staves, and I gave both of them names. In fact every weapon I own has a name.

    No real names for them. I simply call them what they're made out of, and then add "bo" to it. Thus...

    Brazilian Rosewood Bo
    Brazilian Walnut Bo
    Brazilian Cherry Bo
    Purpleheart Bo
    Hickory Bo (lighter)
    Hickory Bo (darker)
    Black Locust Bo
    Tropical Olive Bo

    I guess that makes them all in the same family...

    Yeah, but I'm sure it's not a very......er....long name! :lfao:

    In all seriousness, I've heard of named swords.....none of my swords are old enough for that. I've made knives, but none of my knives have names.

    I have given cars names, all gal's.

    And trucks names, all comic book villain's.

    And motorcycles names, all comic book superhero's.

    Sticks, though? They've all had the same two names, whether it was that 12" lignum vitae billyclub, a cane, a hanbo, a rokushakubo, or even that size 28 Al Kaline Louisville Slugger I kept in the back of the car for years,

    They were either "stick," or, when I was in a certain mood, "the Lobotomizer." :lfao:

    Seriously, I've known people who named firearms, and always thought them a bit insane.......

    .....or they were Marines, which is pretty much the same thing. :lfao:

    I love my staff and would take it everywhere if i could! But no i dont have a name for it because its name is bo staff already. I guess i could call it bo for short (yes yes bo means staff so bo staff is staff staff blahblahblah)

    Let's not make this more complicated than it needs to be. Beau, is a fine name for a staff. Or, Staffy :)

    Bo is the Japanese word for staff, it's not a nickname.

    Ok, I know you don't speak English as a first language, you said the thread was 'funny' that can mean you think it's weird/strange/peculiar or it could mean you find it amusing. However if you said it was laughable you would be insulting. English is a strange language and basically what you need to do is flag up when you make a joke and preferably make the joke funny, which yours wasn't. There is no comedy value in saying ' I think bo is already a nice nickname for whatever' it simply didn't make any sense.
    We don't think you are a moron, we think you are having difficulties with one of the most difficult languages on the planet, some of your ideas about martial arts though are a bit silly.

    As you've been here a grand total of 31 days to my 10 years I will bow to your obviously superior wisdom.
    I can't help it if your jokes don't make people laugh though :confused:123
