If your kids are anything like mine, at some point they’ve fallen in love with your robot vacuum. All three of mine have been obsessed with this little helper!

Our robot vacuum cleaner is named John Malkovich, and honestly at this point feels like part of the family. We originally got a smart home device to help with keeping up with chores, and never imagined the unexpected bonus of the joy that comes from little kids when they get to chase him around.

There are some many robotic vacuum cleaners on the market these days, and most families end up getting one. No matter what robot vacuum brand your vacuum robot hails from, we can all count on their cleaning routine to bring some extra cuteness when our kids are involved.

Whether you’ve just gotten a new vacuum, or are looking for some good robot names, this list of creative and funny options is sure to help you find the perfect name for your own cleaning machine.

Why Choose a Name for a Vacuum Robot?

The reason that we chose to name our Roomba John Malkovich was simple: we opened the program to set it up for the first time, and it prompted us to do so. We were really into John Malkovich movies at the time, and thought it would be a great name.

Your autonomous vacuum robot basically becomes a member of your family, especially if you have kids. Every single parent I know says the name of their robot vacuum out live more than you expect. If you have smart devices that connect it using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you’ll say it even more.

When it came to naming our Roomba, we chose to go with something fun to say that would make us smile. When our middle child asked for his own Roomba for Christmas one year, he had free reign to choose what to call it. He could have given it a pet’s name, reference the fact that it was a machine or pick a classic robot.

Instead? He chose to name it “Baby Malkovich.” So cute!
