But did you know that you can give your Roomba a name? Here are some of the funniest names for Roombas that we’ve come up with:

  • Sir Loots-a-Lot: This is the perfect name for a Roomba that is always getting stuck under furniture or in tight spaces.
  • The Floor Is Lava: This one is perfect for when your Roomba randomly decides to stop working in the middle of cleaning.
  • The Great Escape Artist: This is the ideal name for a Roomba that tends to run away from home. Whether it’s escaping from its charging dock or running off into another room, this little guy always seems to find a way to escape.

List of Disney names for Roomba

Do Roombas come with names?

Roomba does not come with names installed, this is why you also want to name your Roomba. It is however quite easy to do so. Already in the installation process, you’ll be asked to give it a name.

I think naming your Roomba is a personal choice. Not everyone will do it either, but naming the robot will make you relate to it more easily and make it a daily companion in your life. Also, more and more robots will probably enter our homes so naming our robots will make it much easier to handle.

In an interview, Slate did with Colin Angels, co-founder, and CEO of iRobot in Bedford, Mass he quoted:

 If you ask people who don’t own Roombas if they would name them, they almost violently say, “No, why would I name my vacuum cleaner?” Yet once they own one, more than 80 per cent of people do. At the beginning of Roomba, we all took turns answering the support line. Once, a woman called and explained that her robot had a defective motor. I said, “Send it back. We’ll send you a new one.” She said, “No, I’m not sending you Rosie.”

Colin Angel

Here is a clear statement that indicates the relation a person can get to a simple robot like a Roomba.

Is your Roomba vacuum a boy or a girl?

According to a research paper done by Micol Marchetti-Bowick from Stanford University, it depends on several different factors like shape, model name, sound, color, and maybe even personality traits.

I’ll start by supplementing this great quote from Micol, which gives a really good example of simple things that can make you believe something to be of a specific gender.

In other cases, the choice of gender may not be as clear. However, people will nonetheless associate the robot with a particular gender: “[The Roomba] is a girl…it’s round. It’s close to the floor. It ends with an ‘a.’ I always think of it as a wom-ba,” (Garfinkel, 2004). Here, traits such as the robot’s name and shape are being used to characterize it as female.

Micol Marchetti-Bowick, Stanford University

So, by this definition, a Roomba is a girl because it is design and brand/model name ends with an ‘a’. I want to dig a little deeper into the last part because I think the shape and design of things make perfect sense. If you make robots have female features, you would most likely think of them as female, but is a Roomba a girl because “Roomba” ends with an ‘a? Let’s investigate a little.

So according to Robinson Meyer in this article from theatlantic.com, more girl names do end with an ‘a’ compared to boy names. Searching for girl names through my own government’s statistics bank (DST) – the only one I have access to and very reliable, it’s also clear that this is the case; much more girl names end with an ‘a’ compared to boy names.

Robinson also elaborates on the reason for the ‘a’ being more used in girl names, one reason is that the ending with ‘a a’ derives from Latin names and as we know, most modern names today are based on Latin names. He further elaborates that there was also a tendency for female names to originate from male names with an added suffix.

I’ll end the small investigation here by concluding, yes you could say that your Roomba is a girl. I would even go as far as to say, that if I had a Roomba I would go for a girl’s name.

On a side note, I have a Neato D4 robot vacuum it is D-shaped and I think of it as a boy, and now I wonder why.

What are good robot vacuum names?

A good name for your robot vacuum should first of all be something easy to remember. Secondly, you should be looking out for the complexity and ease of pronunciation. You’ll want the name of your robot vacuum to be something you want to use over and over in the lifespan of the robot.

This is also why a lot of the names above are movie references or references to some other very nostalgic thing.

I think the trifecta of a perfect name is a combination between humor, ease to remember, and pronunciation. If you can hit those three it’s a perfect fit.

Are there any names I should not name my robot vacuum?

No, not really. The possibilities are quite endless. I have not yet come across a limit to how long, how dirty, or how complicated you can name your robot vacuum.

But a thing to bear in mind is, that the more complicated you make the name for your robot vacuum, the harder it’ll be for Google Assistant or Alexa to get it correct.

I wouldn’t for example name my robot vacuum “Mr. Frank4A5>671.098”.

I have also experienced some other quite odd bugs/failures with funny and complicated robot names. I tried to name my robot vacuum “42” – which is the meaning of life and everything, according to the movie “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the galaxy”.

The problem with the name “42” was that it would sometimes start my robot vacuum, when I asked, “What are the meaning to life and everything” or if I made a statement of something including 42.

The same thing happened when I named my robot vacuum “order 66”, which is a reference to Star Wars “Execute order 66”. So when I told my Google Home to “Execute order 66” it would sometimes start my robot vacuum, but more often than not just tell me about the reference quoted from Wikipedia.

It’s really fun to play around with and the outcome is sometimes hilarious. But if the robot name is something you are going to use multiple times a week, I would suggest naming it something a little more simple for it to understand.

Can I rename my Roomba’s name?

Yes, you’ll always be able to rename your Roomba, follow these quick steps to show you how:

  1. Make sure you are connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Roomba.
  2. Go to the home screen of your iRobot/Roomba app.
  3. Press the “More icon” which should look like a bubble with three dots inside.
  4. Go to “Settings”.
  5. Press on your Robot Name, and now you’ll be able to type something different.

When done, you should refresh it in your Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or your other smart home assistant, so it can recognize the new name.

Using the robot vacuum name for google assistant and Alexa

Now, you might already have chosen what to name your robot vacuum. Maybe Murderbot? No matter what great name you’ve chosen, a question still arises. Can you use the custom naming of your robot vacuum for anything?

Will I be able to call out my robot vacuum from Google Home, Nest, or Alexa?

The answer is yes, if your robot vacuum is Google Assistant and Alexa compatible, which it should tell you on the packaging or in the manual, you’ll be able to command your robot vacuum using your custom name.

Time to round things up

I will recommend you play around with the naming of your robot vacuum, you can get some laughs out of it. But when you’ve done playing around, choose something very familiar and simple so it’ll be an easy task for Google Assistant and Alexa to execute the commands you give them.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the reading and maybe even found some inspiration.
