    I prefer to use boring names like (SCHOOLNAME)-DC01 for the first domain controller, (SCHOOLNAME)-EX01 for the first exchange server (SCHOOLNAME)-FS01, for the first file server etc etc.

    There is nothing worse than going to a clients site and having to remember which aircraft or bird of prey you need to log on to in order to perform a task.

    It also make more sense to new techies or a new NM if you decide to leave the school.

    We call our servers after their function. Although my home network is made up of safari animals. PC's with names like zebra and giraffe...

    I think this has been talked about before but because we have Devonport Naval base outside our gates I use naval ships ie Victory, Invincible you get the idea

    Bit geeky but how about after famous computer scientists?

    Babbage, Turing, Rivest, Shamir, Adleman, Dijkstra, Hellman, Diffie, Merkle, Knuth, von Neumann, Shannon, Hamming, and one especially for all the lady geeks: Lovelace;

    Eek! That's a bit of a 'come hack me' sign isn't it? A server called Invincible!
