Default Naming of planes

Girlfriend is "angry"! (Way beyond that actually). She's bloody f*****g p****d! Because I don't "name" the planes every time I fly them.
Is this something I should be concerned about? Please help!

Seriously? Then name your planes after the girlfriend you had before her. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This made me think of a line from Firefly:

"Six men came to kill me one time. And the best of 'em carried this. It's a Callahan full-bore auto-lock. Customized trigger, double cartridge thorough gauge. It is my very favorite gun… This is the best gun made by man. It has extreme sentimental value… I call her Vera."

"Well my time of taking you seriously has certainly come to a middle."

In Elite: Dangerous I've named ships things like FV Amalthea (cargo hauling Python), TCSS Endurance (Diamondback Explorer fitted for exploration) and Got Buns Hun? (Anaconda, get it...?).

Golf Foxtrot 1, Golf Foxtrot 2, Golf Foxtrot 3, etc.... Let her do the math so you can move on to Golf Foxtrot 4 and beyond.
Happy flying!

Haha! Thanks guys!
It was sort of a joke, with some truth in it. I've tried to explain to her, that it's pretty futile to name ones and zeros that changes whenever I use mye computer until I start skinning, I guess. So I might need to teach myself that.
In her case, I guess it's just a product of having to many horses and ponies growing up. She won everything though.
Good part though! She wants to get into DCS, and start beeing mye RIO. "But not like Goose!"
