    Well, I don't have a custom name in the computer name box, but All of my primary machines have always been named HAL 9000, with whatever PDA/Phone/Palm I have at the time being SAL 9000.

    iMac G5: "(my full name)'s iMac G5" -- not very clever, I know. The hard disk used to have a name, but it died about a year ago, and I had it replaced. It's still named "Macintosh HD" because I'm afraid that if I rename it, FCE will go nutterbutter on me.

    iMac G3: "Snow iMac" -- Since the iMac is white, and the official color name was "Snow."

    933 MHz Pentium III Gateway: "The Turtle".

    If I ever get an 8-core Mac Pro, I'm calling it "Octopus".

    My names are not as creative as yours but I'm quite fond of my MacBooks name:

    MacBook: Adam's Apple

    iPod: Adam's iPod

    HD: The Core

    As you might guess my name is Adam =)

    I notice people are surprised when I tell them that I've named all my Macs, I weep when I see a poor nameless MB or its ilk.

    1st Mac - TiBook - Charisma
    2nd Mac - MBP - Evangeline...sold to sister, now Apollo
    3rd Mac - MBP - Penelope

    That's the old computer name thread, here's another. And here's the old iPod thread and the old Hard drive thread.

    Those already answered in those threads don't need to reply in this (unless they've since replaced or renamed their mac/ipod/whatever). ;)

    I've gotten some new (and still have much of the old stuff, but have also renamed some stuff :)):

    MacBook: Serenity (with the internal disk: Internal)
    old iBook: ono-sendai
    500 GB LaCie drive: Space
    200 GB LaCie drive: Backup
    AirPort Extreme and AirPort Express: Extreme and Express (I know :eek:)
    iPod nano: Spøkelseskladden

    I'll just list my main machines. I have a bunch of old machines that I haven't booted up in a while, but their HDDs usually are either "Macintosh HD" or the OS version.

    Snow iMac G3: White Slapper ('tis a working server, y'see.)

    MacBook with OS X: MacBook
    MacBook with Boot Camp: MACBOOK-XP
    MacBook with Parallels: MACBOOK-VM
    MacBook with OS 9: MacBook-:) (Representing the classic happy mac bootup symbol)

    PowerMac G3/233 beige desktop:
    OS X Server 1.0: testbed (I think. I cannot recall and sadly haven't booted into Server 1.0 in a long while.)
    Mac OS 9: QuickTake Workstation

    iPod 5g 30GB: Salacious iPod
    iPod shuffle 1g 1GB: Itty Bitty Poddy
