@thomas I don't have any 'Servers' as such any more but my machines (Including RasperryPi's) are either named after David Bowie albums or songs or just random names I like the sound of like "Ozymandias"
@thomas i name my devices after scandinavian mythology... but servers are usually named after hitchhiker's guide characters
@thomas servers at work are boring, their names are made up of company name, location, s for server, and a number. Some exceptions (hy instead of s for HyperVs, ex instead of s for Exchange).
Home computers are named after Angels in Neon Genesis Evangelion...
By purpose and a number. For example backup1
@thomas Jupiter’s moons. 🌚
@thomas I name my private systems, including servers, after characters from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Professionally its functions and numbers, though.
By planets, but by movie characters is also a good idea!
@thomas Private: Servers are Hitchhiker Planets, Clients are Hitchhiker Characters
Business: Constructed name concept by type/place/purpose/etc
@thomas By characters from Linage II MMORPG.
By spontaneous idea. Sometimes the names are derived from Asterix:
@thomas Muppets or harbours/bays
Freifunk: physicist (preferred with Nobel prize)
Business: Asterix characters but mostly purpose
Own: name of the hardware
At one workplace we used place names from the Harry Potter novels
@thomas My server is named "server". The other machines are either named by purpose or by owner.
@thomas By purpose and location. Used to do stars and planets until it got too confusing :)
@thomas airport codes
@thomas "srv-"+first 3 letters of location+"-"+id
@thomas by King of Queens characters. Also DNS suffix is queens.
I used to name stuff after gods/characters.
That got annoying after a while, so only our pfsense device has a custom name now.
Personal devices keep their custom names though.
