    You could call it Jane, or PB, or Powerbook, jimmy, or jimminy.....
    I really don't know if you'd like any of these names. Do you want your PB to be have a girl name, boy name, or one thats not gender specific?

    "Anna"

    "Moby" or "Moby Book" (for Moby Dick representing it's sheer power)

    "Octopus" for it's ability to do so many things at once :D

    "Book, Power Book"

    On that same note: "Bond"

    "Austin"

    "Dr. Evil"

    "Panther"

    Bertha sounds quality ;)

    I have three servers called osiris, phoenix and cougar - so i'm not gonna go down the same route as those for my own computers :)

    Thanks for the ideas :D

    Yeah, call it Elvis. Also whenever you leave with it in hand, be sure to say "Elvis has left the building".

    Even after a few hundred repetitions it'll still be funny. You'll be able to tell by the groans of approval you'll be hearing. :p

    These aren't girls names, but I like them nonetheless: Archimedes, Aristotle, Hippocrates, etc.

    Oops.... You called her the "misses" earlier, so I figured that she was your wife.

    Thor?

    As a girl, Bronwyn (pronounced as brawn-win or brawn-wine)

    Sorry. I'm feeling remarkably uncreative.
