    Home servers, laptops and equipment all get girls names.

    Work servers all boring...

    We did in the old days name the work servers after planets.

    the Sims Server was Uranus, Oh the fun.

    We often got a Tape stuck in Uranus, and logging out of uranus always caused a wry smile.

    We then ran out of planets, fortunatly it was a natural leap to GODS and other Classical entities. Our two Currciuclum servers were an identical pair of PE2800's Romulus and Remus, Cerberus was the main internet Filter/Firewall...

    I run multiple virtual machines on my home servers, so I tend to stick to a simple naming/numbering system to avoid having to remember names for everything - DHXEN001 / DHXEN002 for the physical servers, DHROUTER001, DHFILES001, etc for the virtual machines.

    Monolith is my home machine, because of the black aluminium thermaltake case I used on it.

    Had logins with thunderbirds names where I worked previously for one of the customers servers, I was Virgil for some reason that I cant remember now.

    I started using Muppet characters for machine names. I skipped Miss Piggy just in case it took on her trait of hitting back!

    How very systematic of you, David

    Our servers at school used to be named after the legend of King Arthur:

    Arthur was the DC
    Merlin was the apps and file server

    It then got tricky as spelling errors in Guinevere, Lancelot, Tristan, Percivale etc. when trying to script things in a hurry was a big source of frustration. So it got shelved for something a little simpler/boring. The staff used to like it though.

    My mum's husband uses Morpheus for his home server. I'd probably go with a nerd game/movie reference. Maybe I'd go with 'Emmett' ('Doc' from BTtF). Maybe 'Freeman'. Maybe 'Doctor'. I'm sure I can think of others, but not first-thing on a Monday morning.

    I personally don't havea home server, though, just standalone machines.

    I run two schools, one follows Greek Gods and the other Roman Gods.

    SIMSSERVER was Roman God right?
