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

    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.

    mine centers around the braves for the most part.

    mac: chipper
    hard drive: cj #10

    external (this is partitioned, one for backing up the cj #10 drive and rest of it is storage)
    backup boot drive: larry
    backup external: the ted

    link to windows pc: shareddocs (i would rename this js if i could)

    ipod black (1st gen): huddy (for now)

    upcoming
    flash drive 1: frenchy (simple 1 gb flash drive)
    flash drive 2: jo-jo (no, not the singer, this is for a planned external 10.5 booting sometime this winter to test the os out before going full out on the main hard drive)

    thoughts? bonus points for someone who can figure out why i name them like i have.

    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. ;)
