Naming computers is always fun. My main computer at home is always
"Golem", and if I ever had had the power to name a series of
computers, I was going to name them after famous Canadian maritime
disasters ("Erebus" and "Terror" were going to be the first two).
RFC 1178 (http://www.apps.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1178.html) has some good
dos and don'ts for naming a computer, and is a pretty fun read too.
