Hola to all. In some spanish speacking countries, like M?xico, some institutions use the female gender to name meteorites, so they call them METEORITAS, instead of METEORITOS, which is the way they are more frecuently named.
Hasta la vista,

> Hello Listers,
> I have been meaning to ask people what sex they would consider their meteorites to be and if the names of the meteorite would be the final factor in determining sex? Or is this a silly question for me to ask in the first place?
> Why I ask this question is because alot of times I hear people refer to a classic car as a female, like "look at her she's a beauty". I have even caught myself referring to some of the meteorites I own as a male of female.
> For instance, I would consider Almahata Sitta as female because the way Almahata Sitta sounds has this romantic feel to it when I say her name. Or the Weston, I would definitely call it a male meteorite because just the word sounds bold and strong when I say his name.
> Which sex are your meteorites and what determining factors could dictate which way this would go?
