    They used the greek mythology theme here, until I changed it. Does my head in! Shout's of "Zues has gone down" are not funny when you desperately trying to remember which of 12 stupidly named servers hosted DNS, arrggghhhh!!!!!

    I can see why, when you have lots of server, that is confusing. We only have two a primary called Jupiter and a backup called Juno after Roman mythology.

    Each to their own......

    We have just short of 30 servers and it does not get confusing - in fact it makes it easier.

    Especially with servers hosting multiple services and in the case of our Hyper-V array multiple servers.

    And all one of my team need to do is open up a spreadsheet and look by either service type (web/BMS/CCTV/voip,DNS/DHCP, etc) or even just look at the description field in active Directory.

    Based on some of the other replies in the thread ours are far from crazy.

    we name the virtual servers after people who have some sort of association with its role. eg zuse, babbage, etc.
    For the physical hosts as we have just moved to clustered hyper-v we went for comedy double acts. so we have mitchell and webb. armstrong and miller

    Not often I'm allowed to stamp on the pedantic hat...

    I think it was a reference to Konrad Zuse...Konrad Zuse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Edit: Eeek, unless you spotted my unfortunate miss-spelling further up *runs away and hides in embarrassement*

    Not him...YOU
    Interestingly, I didn't read Zuse as Zeus - but more like Zoooze so it didnt register as being similar
