    What is Your Mac's Name?
    Inspired by this thread:

    http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54668

    I have to ask, have you given your Mac a name? In the above thread, the poster calls his/hers "Lunchbox".

    I thought I was the only dummy who attached names to their computers. Glad to see that I am not alone!

    I called my last PC "whisper" because I bought it from a place that specialized in absolutely quiet compters (www.endpcnoise.com), and they guaranteed that it would be whisper quiet - hence the name. ...and it was (and still is) whisper quiet.

    My current Mac doesn't really have a clever name, but since it is my first Mac, when I buy my next one (hopefully in a year or so, after Mac Pros are octal cores, Leopard is out, 1 TB drives are standard... ) I plan to call it

    [enter groan mode]

    Apple ][

    [exit groan mode]

    What are some of your computer names? I am sure that a creative group like this has come up with some good ones!
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
    My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
    My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

    I call mine Glenn Frey, because, like the Eagles song he sang, my MacBook gives me a Peaceful Easy Feeling.

    On a side note, I also name all of my fishing rods. My $250 combo is called richness, my ultralight is lightness, my cheap rod is cheapness, my big baitcaster catfish rod is toughness, and my ice rod is Sir James Clark Ross whom, I believe, was the first person in documented history to reach the North Pole.

    All of my machines are named after Ford muscle cars. My desktop at work is MUSTANG65. My desktop at home is MUSTANG66 and my Windows/Ubuntu laptop is COBRA. It seemed fitting that since my Mac is running a completely different OS that I should name it after a Mercury, so it's COUGAR. Not entirely creative, I know, but if you've got to pick an arbitrary machine name, it might as well have some kind of reasoning behind it
