    I just saw in someone's signature a list of Macs along with names for each....

    so it got me thinking....

    I call my TiBook "Mercury" (I know, unique :rolleyes:)
    I call my G4 Tower "Boy Wonder" (inside joke :p)

    Look in my signature for the names. Macky has been named since day 1. The good people here on macrumors helped me name my iBook Booker.

    I call mine all sorts of names if it doesn't do what I want it to...

    ...usually the unprintable kind.

    I am proud of my naming scheme

    My first mac was my powerbook g3 firewire (pismo) 400 that i lovingly called Apple Cider.

    My Airport base station is named Apple Orchard (it makes sense if you think about it)

    My G4 (quicksilver) is named Apple Crisp

    And finally my iPod is named Apple Dumpling (it makes sense too)

    I also helped my friends name theirs... my coworkers is Apple Juice

    Hmmm....

    If I can remember right my Mac Classic was called "Silver Surfer"

    Then my 7500 was called "Narcissus" (I think I had like 30-40 names I tried out on the 7500 before that one stuck to it).

    Then my Beige G3 was called "Cloud"...then when I added a new drive with two partitions, whose became "Wind" and "Frost".

    I for one am glad the G5's aren't out yet...as I still need to come up with some possible names. I think the toughest choice I'll have to make is whether or not to keep the names on the drive I move from the G3 into the G5.

    My lime Rev D iMac was originally called "Big Green" but all that changed when a couple of foster-kittens played WWF across the keyboard. Now it's ".0" and I can't get it to change.

    My G4 at work has two 60Gb drives : Zen (OS X.1.2 & compliant Apps.)

    : Liberator (OS 9.2 & classic Apps.)

    my OS 9 partition is "cloud 9" & my OS X partition is "the 'X' files"

    I also have a 10 gig firewire external that's still nameless...
