Some people name their cars.. I know someone who named her house.. I'm sure people name other.. inanimate objects.
I have a thing about naming my computers.. and until they have a name, (other than the factory rubbish) I don't let them on my network.
I won't just name them anything... normally, the name has something to do with how it looks, or with something I was doing at the time.
I've had way too many computers in my lifetime to name them all, but here's a few... my army of laptops is easiest to explain.
Zeus - My first laptop.. he was a Hewlett Packard ze4410us laptop. Using the first and last letters from the model number, gave me Zeus.
Tuna - My second laptop.. bought from a friend of mine and so named because she had a silver belly. (the laptop.. not my friend)
And now.. probably the weirdest name I've given one of my computers..
Voxin - My current laptop.. around the time I bought him, I'd rediscovered the glory of Dune II - Battle for Arrakis.. this was the first game I installed on my brand new super cool uber laptop that I bought to play WoW on, after playing it on Tuna became too unbearable. Anyway, I had kept a game editor for Dune, part of which was able to extract every single soundfile from the game. The files came out with a .VOX extension, and for an afternoon, I was *.VOX'in it up.. playing the soundfiles for my own amusement with sounds such as "Enemy Harvester, Destroyed".. or the dreaded "Wormsign".
I name my computers.. and sometimes, Hard Drives. And I call them by those names. "Oh.. just copy that over to Aggy".. "Which drive is it on?" "Gigantor, I think." (Gigantor is a 1TB drive hooked up to a HDD Dock)
So yes.. I name my computers.
