I don't name my things and could not imagine doing so seriously. Making a name up for something is almost impossible for me to do. I never particularly think about things by their names - the first thing I forget about them are their names. This is probably why I like mathematics - I don't think of variables and functions as "variable x" or "function mu;" I think of them as "this piece of information" and "the function that does blah blah." Whenever my brain encounters naming or names, it just ignores it. Stupid brian. This makes remembering people's names difficult for me.

The only things that I name are those which need to be named, such as files and programs.

My pets went unnamed. Eventually I referred to them by numbers in the language Esperanto.

Anyway, I don't name my computer.

My laptop = Nikita (Have always liked the name and it just reminds me of a super hero type woman and when I got the laptop she was pretty mean!)
My Desktop = Polaris (Got it from a Megadeth track, it was the name given to one of the ICBM's (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile)

In the past I have had:
Jessie (Pretty name)
Valkyrie (Angel of Death)
Archon (Gave this name to a Linux box - big nasty machine)
Psylocke (hmm wonder where I got that from)

they are all named after AIs for book/movies/TV


That's pretty slick. I'll have to remember that when I get my laptop in two weeks. I think the Skynet one would work for that.


you get your laptop ATNO?

Usually I prefer to refer to my computer as if I were talking to it without addressing it by it's first name, in hopes that it would develop a bond with me and give me a break. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it has PMS. When it does have PMS I might call it buddy, but other than that it is nameless.....shhhh! He/She Might hear us!

Erm, there are loads. One is called "Neo" (think about it).

The rest just go by the name of machine, for example "PB160" is another name, the reason being is the machine is a Packard Bell 160.
