What hostnames you like to put for your computers

Hello everyone.

I have few machines at home all running Linux. I want to give each one of them a cool hostname, but still be somehow connected. So far I have used Start Craft Brood War names :smiley: . For example hatchery, spawning pool etc. However I am trying to come up with better ideas, but so far I failed.

Do you have an interesting ideas for hostnames? Please share.

Try actor names from your favorite tv show, god names from mythology or book titles for hostnames…

I just thought of this, but how about Harry Potter characters? Besides harry, you can also use ron, hermione, dumbledore, snape, and so forth. Now that I think of it, I may as well give it a try myself!
