I was just wondering what you all use for your networking and/or peripheral names?

What i mean is, what are you computer and peripheral names on your LAN?

I use Star Wars names myself as follows;

Mac Pro - Yoda
MBP - ObiWan
Networked Printer - Vader
Airport Extreme BS - Threepio
Airport Express - Artoo
External FW HD - Jango
External USB HD - Boba....

What do you guys use?

See a theme?

That's all I have for now, I hope to get a replacement iPod which I will name, but that'll have to wait.

Network Router: Optimus Prime
My Athlon 64: Megatron
iMac: Music Machine
PowerMac G5: Monolith
Roomates PC: TroublesomePOS
Other Roomates PC: Laptop

Megatron and Music Machine are the only names that I recycle. Music Machine as you may have guessed is for my iTunes Server and is connected to my main stereo. Megatron always refers to my gaming rig. I have wanted to use HAL but nothing short of a Mac Pro Cluster could live up to a name like that:D.

Hmm...I've only got names for things that need names...I haven't named anything just for the sake of naming it...

Computer: ZePowahbook
iPod: Zoom-Zoom
Phone: ZeSLVR
Internal Drive, 3 partitions: System, Swap and Haggis
2 FW Drives: Fire and Water


I think those are all of the things that have required naming.

Wifi Router: AWESOM-O
Both of my external HDDs: Backup!

Back my freshman year of college our wifi router name used to be ROOM 166 BITCHES!!! Everyone who saw us would say it back to us and it was mildly humorous. Oddly enough, my current room number at a completely different university: 166.

Mine (Low and behold) have names that makes it easier for me to remember what said Network Item is. For example, my file server is called... yep, you guessed it... Server. My sisters laptop is 'Leannes Laptop' and the downstairs computer is Bob. ;)
