Do you just use the Windows default or, like me, do you opt to give your PC a silly name?


Mine is called The Tardis.

Mine's named after the name of its case: Vanquish.

I'm getting a new computer case which is called a "Bullet" so I could rename it to that...

It seems like all the cases have cool names, so it's a good trend to live by.

I name all devices that require a name according to their size after vessels from science fiction series I like. Or watched, for the matter of SGU. Viper, Jumper, Destiny, Prometheus, DeltaFlyer, Serenity, Defiant.

Quiz: Name me the SciFi series they belong to :-P

I know you've got Star Trek, Stargate and Firefly in there. Viper was also a ship in Freelancer. :)

Viper, as the name of a ship goes back to the original Elite in 1984.


Dunno if there any TV shows, movies, etc... that used it prior to that.

There actually wasn't intended for Stargate to be in there. Only both spin-off series. I only now realize that Prometheus is not only the most cool looking and most silly functioning ship in Trek history, but also a ship in Stargate.

Viper is actually from Battlestar Galactica. The small white long-ish fighter craft are called Vipers. But I could have guessed it's a common name :-D


A new computer will be added to the family soon. Any name suggestions? :-D
