How do you name your computers? Is there a convention you use? Do you name them after characters?

Whatever comes to mind and seems fitting, but I'm not that creative.
I named my laptop 'folder', Never really gave one to my pc but the name 'blackbox' seems like it's be appropriate.

The two working computers I have are named after star sapphire and luna child. If I had a third working one I'd name it after sunny milk

My second PC was called "Beauty" when I first got it. Then she went through years of hard life and changes and after one major reboot she turned into "Dirty Old Hag". My 2 previous laptops didn't have names, but my current one (even after one major reboot) is called "Hadaly", just like my Dollfie Dream and Butterfly collection, as the character has huge presence in my inner world.

I name mine after fictional scientifically advanced "bases". aperture (duh), discovery (2001: A Space Odyssey), excelsus (Metal Gear EXCELSUS), auto (Autopilot from Wall-E). I just kinda like to pretend my computer is the mainframe for whatever it's named after.

For some reason I do scientists and philosophers for physical devices and song or album names for virtual machines.

I named my current pc Helios, based off the name of the case I used (super helios).
My previous pc was named Gateway, that should be self explanatory.
My pc before that was given the name Frankenstein by it's previous owner, said it was because they pulled parts from half a dozen systems to build it. My laptop is called x220 because fuck it I'm lazy.
