My current naming scheme is norse mythology:

heimdall - router [gentoo] ("the watchman of the gods" ;))
odin - server [debian]
loki - notebook [gentoo]
thor - desktop [gentoo]
baldur - dvb/video-box [winXP]

Guess I have to watch out - I heard my notebook is bound to "kill" our dvb-box very soon and trigger "ragnarok" - the norse eqivalent to armaggeddon :? ...

my main desktop:
prometheus

the harddrive of my laptop crashes like each week, so I change distro on it quite often, but the the smartest name that machine ever had (when I ran Slackware 9.1) was slacktop :-)

It is quite interesting to see that so many LinuXer picked those system names from the "hitchhiker".. :-D It is my favourite book but i tried to find something else as a name.. so.. here it is:

Main system: helios
Laptop: icarus (because it's "flying" around.. ;-) )

BTW our university has a server named "SlartibartFAST".. *g*

Have a nice xmas..

I'm not sure how original this is.. I havnt had time to read other people's ideas... but i have always named my computers after chemical elements....

carbon..
helium..
argon...
and finally neon..

i once noticed a computer at my university named Neon and i thought that was a cool idea.. if anyone else has done the same i would be interested...

Welp, this thread is so long and old I'm sure mine'll be lost, but I named my main workhorse:
tuxmachine.testlab.org and the others:
tuxmachine2.testlab.org
tuxmachine3.testlab.org

But I noticed my son named his after his girlfriend, Trisha. lol... He runs windows on that tho. I can't convert him! :-(
