    It's a little silly, but I'm just interested to see if any of you have named your mac pro with any type of nickname or handle. If so, what did you name it?

    I had a couple of names for it (which I can't repeat) before I sent it back for a replacement. ;)

    I named my powerbook "Panic". I do not suggest doing this though, as looking through logs on that PB, you would see "Panic" all over the place. Made looking for an actual panic rather difficult. Also, it would freak out anyone looking at the logs up at work. They thought the laptop was panicing every few seconds because they would glance at the logs, and see panic all over the place.

    I guess it was funnier (is that a word), when your there.

    My Mac Pro is named Meerclar, the name of the goddess of the cats in the fantasy novel "Tailchaser's Song".

    This fits with my home Linux server, which is named "Hushpad", also from a character in that book.

    The Macbook Pro is named "Nala" (from The Lion King) and the G4 at work is "Sarafina" (from same).

    Yes, I like cats and cat-related media a *lot*! :)

    I name all my computers, but I use the codenames of their processors. Like my Apollo Mac mini or my Santa Rosa MBP.

    "The Ocho" as it works on two levels, the whole 8 core thing plus a funny pop culture reference from the movie Dodgeball.

    Let's see. Never thought about naming the machine itself. The only things I name are the Hard Drives.

    Bay 1 - Death Star
    Bay 2 - Time Machine
    Bay 3P1 - Windows XP
    Bay 3P2 - Music & Stuff

    Yup. That is as lame as it gets on my machine. :)

    I'll be naming my drives...

    1. The Core
    2Mac. The Duality
    2Win. The G.U.I.L.T.

    Oh, and my iPods are named in a similar manner, but that's irrelevant here...

    So begins the quest to find a name for my new Mac Pro... my laptop is "Lappy" and I just began the quest to name my Mac Pro (yep, i geeked myself out on this one)....

    I'd be interested to hear how you came up with this name (?)

    Ha... I evaluate systems, servers, etc... I know exactly what you mean. Not a bad name for a laptop though.

    I was thinking Bessie or Bertha for a while too.. hmm.. :rolleyes:

    Ha..

    Brilliant... Death Star... that has a nice ring to it.

    Hmmm...

    Awesome... Has anyone seen an actual Death Star icon? That would rock. I can't seem to track one down.
