Geez.  I trail far behind the crowd in creativity.  I currently have in
my home, server1 (LFS LDAP testing box right now..soon to host freenx),
server2 (Win2k3), name1 (LFS-6.1/LFS-gcc4/LFS-with-MPPE dev box), name2
(LFS 6), name3 (LFS from sometime before 6), name13 (WinXPHome), and
name14 (WinXP Pro) here.

My live servers have a little more flavor, but each name has
signifigance to only me (based on the time that they were built) with no
pattern.  FYI they are pinski, liveage, and eureka.

Most of my SBS customers share in my uneventful naming scheme - ServerN,
WS-NN, and LAP-NN.  Occasionally I get a wild hare and go with
$DOMIANNAME-NN. ;-)  One of my customers uses the local city's sports
teams for their servers...needless to say I had no control over the
naming scheme there.
