Just wondering...
I usually name with my favorite anime characters (and sometimes plus brand name or CPU name after a same character's name)

Here's my list :

Laptop(HP V3015) : AyukiHP
Custom AthlonXP : Kurumon (Named since 2003 and never changed)
Acer Aspire 6500 "custom" : AyukiP2 (Since it uses a Slot 1 Pentium II)
AcerPower ???(forgot) : Ayuki (Actually the 1st one named Ayuki)
LEO Pentium 100MHz (Socket 5) : Not nammed yet
Toshiba 486 notebook : Not nammed yet
BC3486F (A mainboard that supports both 386 and 486): Not nammed yet

I name them after (greek) historical figures:
Phidippides - very fast, but its PSU broke after two months (I actually named it before its PSU got fried).
Aristo - Yesterday's genius - it's a 200 MHz Pentium MMX.
Achiles - My emulated testing computer - pretty quick, but has a big weakness - graphics.

I use Japanese names for my computers – male names for the desktop machines and servers, and female names for the mobile systems like notebooks and PDAs.

My computer names are extremly logically named

Main PC (Workstation, Gaming): wilsonpc_main

Second PC (Media Center, Workstation): wilsonpc_room

Server: server
A file and print server which technically isn't mine so I did not put my name, though I probably could and no one would notice.

though virtual pcs don't count they (if they even have an OS installed) would follow the same scheme: wilsonpc_virtual<Number>

I name my computer according to the os installed, like WINVistax86, WINXPx64, WIN2KPRO and etc.
SO if I switch the OS, i would give it a new name, if I got 2 of the same oS, i would name it as WINXP-1 and so on.

Lol, I can imagine you asking your brother or someone where a file is.

"Where did you put that download?"
"IOWNYOURASS"
"WHAT? Do you f***!"
"No seriously"
"Right, thats it!! *SMACK*"

:D
