After building my first gaming rig, I am still facing the challenge of coming up with some type of name.

I would appreciate any suggestions, but please, no

  • Greek mythology
  • roman mythology
  • A-1
  • anything else done ten thousand times before

@mooncheese114: How are we supposed to provide helpful advice on a name when we don't have any specs? Tell us a bit about your new addition.

#13 Posted by FritzDude (2316 posts) -

I usually choose the initials for the operatingsystem, then the PC model / MB behind - exempli gratia W7Z77 - but I guess you want a real name. How about Dave-PC?

@ShaggE: I'm changing my pc's name to The Mutherfucking Milk Truck right now.

#17 Posted by crusader8463 (14744 posts) -

NicksPC is mine. It's the best name because my name is Nick and it's my PC.

I named by computer something very similar the last time I reformatted. I still regret it.

I once met a guy in Rome named "Rex Fistington." Does that help?

I guess I don't have any suggestions really but for reference my gaming PC is mars because it's my escape. My laptop is marvin because it's usually separated and rarely used to its full potential. My work PC is well.. my work username.. first initial last name.

#26 Posted by Inkerman (1492 posts) -

I called mine 'Charlotte', I felt it was an appropriate name for an AI. I was channelling some the the Red Queen vibe from Resident Evil.

#27 Posted by Doomed (270 posts) -

Because I'm oh-so-creative, my PCs have been named HAL9000 and GLADOS. I will probably call my next one Multivac.

You're asking us to be creative for you? Just pick a normal name. Or you can name it Aaaron to screw over anyone who named it Aaron thinking it'd be first alphabetically.

Usually middle name and number. Just an approach.

If it is on any public network call it FBI-Scanbot or NSA-Scanner.

Yup, you want something like this so you can identify it over a network.

People do silly names for their computers? YOU NEED TO ORGANIZE DAMMIT. Networks don't run themselves!

Shirley. Cause you should always treat your PC like a good woman; with respect and give it only the best.

Ah, a nice build. Sounds like a 'Jessabelle' to me. I like to think that Nvidia rigs are female.

#48 Posted by mlarrabee (3209 posts) -

I always go with Sheila.

It does make it confusing when streaming media, though.

What... uh... what does that say about mine? I'm jumping the ATI boat and going back to Nvidia... am I performing the equivalent of a gender reassignment?

Big Jeffery, obviously.

EDIT: Seriously.
