In my old place we used to name them after a few old cars and stuff.
We had :

It was like the main file server that every stored there data on and was like a massive giant spec of a server so i decided to name it Thor =]

Really not a fan of anything apart from functional names unless its something really witty. Sci-Fi names are such a geek stereotype!

I have to agree. But just to be consistent I've also re-named my family TIM-WIF-001, TIM-KID-001 & TIM-KID-002. It'll be so much easier to identify them in a hurry now.

*smirk* - I'm suprised you did not call those file servers Dante and Randal Clerks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

All of ours are named after star wars characters, and most contratcors find it funny and is in no way emabrrising. In fact its made our life a million times easier, the used to be called XXX-01 etc and staff/students could never remember the names of servers. Its much easier for them to remember an error message about Yoda rather than XXX-01

Never been a fan of random naming conventions - I don't buy the security through obscurity argument, so to that end, everything I set up is [SITEID]*-DC01, [SITEID]-MIS01 or [SITEID]-Cab1-Switch1 or whatever. It takes a bit more forethought, and sometimes dual role servers need some thinking about but I much prefer it overall.
*IMO, this can be anything or just leave it out altogether. I'm a fan of three letter acronyms here, so Margate Primary may be MAR, for example
