A lot of times, names are based on your name + iPhone. Like "Jessica's iPhone" as an example. Do you name your iPhone something different? What do you call it?

I keep a lot of phones & tablets so I literally name them XXX's iPhone Xx and in the case of android devices I just leave them as default. It makes it a lot easier when i need to transfer screenshots etc between devices.

(Y)oungren (M)obile 12_(iPH)one_128(G)igabyte.

Identified on my home network (Youngren) as a mobile device, designated 12, it's an iPhone which identifies what it is and the capacity of the device.

Other devices are named similar.

YF14_SATA_1T for instance, is (Y)oungren (F)ixed 14_SATA (that's it's interface)_1(T)erabyte (it's capacity) which belongs to Youngren14 on my network, my Quad G5.

I have a system…

I used generic names like iPhone, iPhone [model] but I encountered difficulty when people tried to send me pictures by AirDrop and there were ten "iPhone" on the list. So now I put my name there.

Lol I hear that! I call my primary phone my iPhone 8 but my other one I call my drop phone as I use it when I am going some where or doing something I would not want to do with my 8. In that case I use an old iPhone 6, aka the drop phone.
