    AdminSrv with the domain name of Admin for the staff side
    Springfield with the domain name of quimby for the student side (They picked it from South Park, Simpsons, Family Guy, and American Dad) and Simpsons came top with over 80% of the student vote

    No issues so far!

    Our ESX Hosts are named after the Vaults in Fallout

    but the servers, a bit boring, named after roles :/

    Obvious addition to OP list, Firefly

    We have boring names here, dc1 etc. but that does make it much easier to work with. My last school had generic names (sitecode-001, sitecode-002 etc.) which made it a nightmare to remember what ran on which server, so as boring as they are, function-as-name is brilliant.

    For inspiration for other lists though, the moons of the solar system would be a lengthy list, or if you prefer your magic to your science, start going through the list of Elven names in the Silmarillion (or hobbits in LOTR or whatever).

    Games consoles might be good to panic some people as well, "Can I have this software please?" "Oh yes, just let me load the MegaDrive up..."

    We name all of ours after Harry Potter here....
    for instance our 4 DC's are potter, hermione, ron, dumbledore.

    Our Email servers: malfoy, chang with the CAS servers being crabbe/goyle.

    Just a small few examples from us!

    Well our servers are just plain 'initials of school" with server tagged on the end, however as we are a primary all the pc's are names after different things, each class with a different topic, i.e. planets, simpsons (that one was my choice!), thomas the tank engine and friends, harry potter etc etc. At other schools we are really inventive its PC01, PC02 etc!

    use to work for a ISP in bedford.
    and i called the servers,
    Clueless (DNS, Mail)
    Useless (DNS, hosting)
    Blackhole (Gateway server)
    WastOfSpace (Backup server)
    NotSoSecret (radius server)
    and the Cisco Access Switch that customers use to dial in on (dialup 56k flex) was called "Idiots"
    just imagine the conversations we could have lol..

    For the purposes of net send, I wanted to call a DC "your mum" but I was overruled by someone with some sense.
