    So, i have an aluminum iMac, and I love it, so I thought I should name it. The problem is, I cant come up with a name that fits it, so im going to let you.

    Thanks

    Mine is called "Starscream", after my favourite Transformer.

    Somehow I just had an idea for an 8-core Mac Pro: "Octopussy", like that James Bond Movie.

    Hm, iMac ... how about "Metal God", after a Judas Priest song, don't know if you like that kind of music.

    Maybe it would help if you told us your hobbies and films/music you like?

    I call mine Peter. Why? No clue.

    You can call it Micky.

    I was going to suggest Alli but poster #2 beat me to it. :)

    Alumac?

    Name it Jack. Jack is a cool name.

    I've since changed it but once I named my iMac Sauce. (applesauce, duh) but also when I didn't want my alchie ex using it I could say "stay off the sauce".


    (Our mac pro is named Octopussy, though I think we're not alone there)

    does it really matter on a small home network? Do you have another identical aluminum iMac you might confuse it with?

    If so - I vote for iCUP or ICE_BANK

    id - for your collective subconscious
    WOPR - from War Games
    AL Sox - for aluminum and American League, if you're a Red Sox fan
    Kewl Beans - well b/c that's obvious
    MacInBos or MacInBost - more of the same
    Wicked Mac

    Not knowing more about you, it's hard to come up with more.

    My Macs get called 'You Bloody Bitch' especially when they've been misbehaving.

    Some people, like myself, use names of the characters from their favorite TV show for their computers.

    I'm a big fan of naming computers after authors. I think that my next computer will be named "Dostoevsky".
