    Yes, I know its Geeky.....
    I recognise a lot of those names from our Maya rendering workstations...

    Almost all of our servers are named with non-English proper nouns that are consistently difficult to spell. The NM has a list of them. One day I am going to kill him and rename them all to something I can type without having to reduce my typing speed to 1/3 of normal.

    We've named them like this:

    Primary (file (used to be DC before we expanded)), Secondary (apps and print), Tertiary (Admin), Quaternary (DC)

    Just going to keep going like that! Before we got primary and secondary we had server and nt1.

    I'm another one for the solar system:-
    Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars & Jupiter

    Except we skipped Earth. When we got to that one it just sounded weird so never used it.

    Would be really interested if anyone knows the naming conventions for BSF servers/farms - bet it's really boring/non-innovative stuff

    How excellent. I was going to ask if you were delivering or posting, but as it's such a luxury cookie I'd like it by special please.
