    Same here. It is the only one in my house. I suppose I could have called it 'The Work Horse' because it gets the most use.

    I've been naming my machines since I was 16.

    Betsy, Daisy (when they were cows)
    And now it's pretty much all names of the same vein:

    Jeffrey, Uli, Nagelbett, Donny, Bunny, Maude etc. etc. ;)

    And to answer the question:
    Uli Kunkel

    And being a nihilist is exhausting.

    By coincidence, I'm getting a Mac Pro today and I'm also pondering what to name it. My old G4 tower was xocolatl, the Maya word for chocolate. My windows machine is camazotz, the name of an evil planet in Madeline L'Engle's book, "A Wrinkle in Time". I also learned the word tesseract, a four dimentional hyper-cube, from that book and that's the name of my quad-core Linux box. My shiny aluminum Macbook Pro is silversurfer, since was watching the Fantastic Four movie while setting it up and I use it a lot for web surfing.

    Our naming scheme consists of character names from Pixar movies, so my Pro was aptly named 'Mr. Incredible'.

    Depending upon the specs, I'd venture somewhere between "Eight-core Whore," "Four-Core Whore," and "Six-Core Whore."

    Originality is key :D
