    Okay, so I'm a little odd, or maybe I'm not... I named my computer... hehe... and printer... and family computers... and their respective printers... and zip drives. hehe yeah....

    You have a name for yours?

    My iMac is Abbi, and my Epson Printer is Jordan (until i think up a better name... my mom's computer is david, and that's what i wanted for my printer..... hehe)

    Yup, so that's me.

    Although most Mac users name their machines, and this has been discussed endlessly, a nice refresher would be nice.

    PowerBook G4 - Waipahu
    iPod - Waimea
    Newton 100 - Hilo

    Mom's PC - Sulu
    Dad's PC - Emissary
    Dad's old PC - Smeg!

    i have had names for a long time.

    pc was LaKalsa.
    hd was Che (instead of C: )
    sold that...

    ibook was Lo Zen.
    hd was Tao.
    sold that.

    iPod is iChing.

    PowerBook is Zen.
    hd is Tao.

    it repeats names, but the iChing - Zen - Tao thing is fine. My mobile is Gepard (t39m). The next 2 devices can be Yin and Yang, or Albergheria. The network is Puma, and it's not visible. :)

    That's harsh.

    But yes, they are female names. And Kira and Nicole are both references. Name both and win a prize!

    PowerBook G3 is Alexia

    PowerBook G4 is Angelica

    My car is Veronica

    My XBox is "That piece of **** that keeps freezing on me"

    And my printer is just an Epson that isn't sure if its ready to die or not so I feel it doesn't deserve anything beyond being "Epson".

    Here's the highlights from my list:
    Mac Classic II: Apollo
    Powerbook 165: Dart
    Performa 6115CD (even if I don't like it): Bongo
    iMac DVSE: Kihei (I'm not 100% sure on the spelling there)
    iMac 800 MHz, SuperDrive: Tessera
    New Powerbook 12": Stark

    I used to name my Macs by their codenames (the Performa and earlier were all named about two years ago), but I've moved on to other ideas with my Powerbook (Stark is a character from the SciFi series Farscape).

    And yes, I still own each one of those computers.

    i'm curious--if you think we don't care what you named them, what is it that makes you think we care what their names are?
