So im part of a kendo club at my school and we all were told to name our swords.
Im having some trouble coming up with a name.

Any ideas?

Gaaah. I'm sorry, but this is actually a bit stupid. We had the same practice in the army where we had to give our rifle a girl's name. It makes absolutely zero difference, antropomorphizing your sword will most likely not make you a better kendo fighter, or give you a closer relationship to it.

But, in the spirit of the thread I suggest you name it "Hammer" :D
Screw you all, and have a nice day!

I like Chance. Considering it's a shinai, for kendo, perhaps go for Kikai (機会). I think that's correct.
