    I've seen a few people name their laptops. I was wondering if anyone on here has and if there was a special reason for the name. Just curious.

    I was bored and saw that Jeremy092288 named his Ophelia and so I got intrigued.

    I name my computers for organization purposes. Since I don't work for an organization in IT it doesn't make sense to name them things like RM55PC2 so I name them simple names much like processors have codenames. I don't use human names like "Fred" because that's just stupid. I also don't refer to my laptop or anything I own as a him or a her that also just stupid. But something like "Niagra" would be likely. However, I'll never tell anyone the names of my computers. That's private :).

    Good one, I bet some people that ordered a T61p are thinking that.

    As for origin of names, I think it came from people needing to name computers on their home network.

    I do agree that its weird naming your computer human or pet names, its not like you're gonna need to call it to come to you :p
