    Spelled 'Hasse', which is a nick name for Hans.

    So Hans would be a really good name for a Hasselblad.

    A friend of mine was fond of nicknaming my cameras; he, being an ardent anglophile, decided to call my Hasselblad "Algernon", and would periodically inquire after "Al's" well-being.

    I have a love affair with my Hasselblad. I have two, but I only love the one. I don't particularly like the lenses, I don't like their size or action, but there's just something about that camera that I have bonded with and when I use her, it's like she knows how to finish what I was trying to say.

    If we continue on the Swedish name teme, I would suggest "Virre" for a Hasselblad. It's a nickname for both Victor and good old whiskey.

    That leaves some room for maneuvre if you tell your wife you'll go and grab Virre.

    Here's an ad for Leica's Monochrome Digital camera. Though I don't find digital particularly romantic, Leica is banking on a dead photographer and WWII to create the romance of Leica.
