Stumbled upon this site today. You can browse, see the top names, or view a random name. Pretty cool. I usually just name my computer something like "example", "example.computer", or "my-pc".

In my little home network, each unit has an owner and a primary use (something it does better than the others) are reflected in the assigned network user name. Like Joe-printer or Becky-scan.  Others can be more descriptive or not, just so the users within the network know where  to do each job, locate a printout, or send a fax.

The link was to computernamer.com which is now a parked domain. Even the twitter account has been inactive since 2010 with one RIP Steve Jobs in 2011.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

One of my computers is named "Problem Chid" another that I got at a garage sale is named "Foundling"

 

Hard drives and USB drives are named after characters in literature and the authors who created them.

I currently have a client who has their servers named after the reindeer.  Large operations use abbreviated  names  and numbers as rooms and floor designations.  Multi-level networks often have numbers to start to help designate particular levels of security.
