Our home network is the 100 Acre Wood, with the various devices being named after the characters who inhabit it.
Its a mix between the Jay & Silent Bob and Monkey Island characters for me.
Good source of names!
I use character names from the Matrix films http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Matrix_character_names
Never named any Apple stuff anything different from the normal “Andrew Yates’ X”. Sounds a pretty cool idea, I like the HMS Discovery idea alot.
I wondered what I could use to name all of my Apple gear.
This is a great idea. Unfortunately I’ve no specific naming conventions with the exception of my external hard drives which I named after cartoon characters (Zim and GIR). I might stretch the cartoon naming convention out to my iPhone and other devices but I might try and find something a little more interesting :)
I’ve got a similar setup, naming all my Apple gear… except mine are named after elderly women.
- MBP: Blanche
- 30” Cinema Display: Estelle
- iPhone: Maude

Helps me make my workspace my own… everyone knows their names around the office, too :).
