    I searched around for this and couldn't find an existing thread so I'm starting a new one.

    What do you name/label your internal hard drive(s)? I'm pretty boring and named mine "Drive 1" and "Drive 2". Would love to hear what everyone else is calling theirs.

    Internals remain Macintosh HDD. My Pegasus runs 2 arrays...One is called Archived Filing, the other Real Time....Pretty obvious why really.

    I like to reference movies and books when I name things.

    Main boot drive (which is SSD): Wafer-thin (from The Meaning of Life)
    4TB HDD for data: Infinite Improbability (Douglas Adams)
    SSD clone: Cologne (not a reference, but makes me laugh)
    4TB clone: Trillian (D. Adams)
    2TB data HDD: Mr. Creosote (The Meaning of Life)
    Main RAID: 12TB RAID6 (boring but functional)
    Secondary RAID: Scratch RAID (ditto)

    I give mine names of my favorite cartoon characters. Just for the fun if it. :)

    My main drive is 'Macintosh SSD', while my external hard drive is 'Portable Heaven', which is a reference to all the HD movies and HQ music I have on it.

    Right now I have Serenity and Miranda. Miranda is a temporary one though, I'm going to wipe it out completely fairly soon. Anyone familiar with Firefly/Serenity might get a bit of a laugh out of that fact, btw.

    I'm pretty boring:
    Drive 1 (OS and Apps): "System"
    Drive 2/3 (RAID 0): "Data"
    Drive 4: "Time Machine Backup"

    Duff-Man says...Aguirre, Stroszek and Woyzeck plus an "Aguirre-TM" which is a time machine drive. A couple external drives follow the same theme...oh yeah!

    Interesting combination. Would you be willing to share why you use these names?

    Lover of history and Greece and Egypt had an interesting connection prior to the Ptolemaic rule of Egypt by Greece.

    I've also incorporated Persia as well as my newest 500GB drive is named Xerxes

    :)

    Watch out because Miranda may wipe you out first!

    I have been naming my volumes and computers after food items, especially desserts. I should probably go after Google and their trend of naming Android version after desserts ;). My prior art would stretch to early 2000's. :)
