via what do i know-

You can learn a lot about someone by the names they give their hard drives. This thread at Slashdot compiles some naming convention ideas you could use next time you reformat a hard drive or buy a new machine. Including…

some examples there are –

  • The Seven Dwarfs (after 7, make your own dwarfs, like “Sleazy”) – or maybe the smurfs?
  • Pop Stars (“Hey, Britney is down again. N-Sync has crashed.”)
  • Retro Arcade Games (Blinky, Pinky…)
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases (“Imagine walking into a room: Hey, can you check Syphylis? For some reason AIDS isn’t talking to it.”)
  • Countries
  • Comic Book Characters (I’ve actually done this one)
  • Cast of Cheers (Norm, Dianne, Cliff…)
  • Ice Cream Flavors
  • Major International Cities
  • Sexual Positions (“Hey, would you try DoggyStyle? I can’t get in.”)
  • Greek Mythology (Zeus, Aphrodite, Hades, etc) (seen it done)
  • Biblical Names (seen it done)
  • Dead Rock Stars
  • Monty Python characters

And my personal favorite there…

  • “Things You Can Do To A Ball” (Punt, Kick, Slam, Spike, Dunk, Pop, Inflate)

One’s I’ve done are classic authors (poe, twain, emerson, etc), and a hive theme (queen bee, worker, drone1,drone2)

Maybe Super Apes!

“Gorilla City” from Smell No Evil, by Ookla the Mok
Well come on down to Gorilla City
We got all the gorillas you need
We got Gorilla Grodd and Solivar
And Beppo the Super Monkey
We got Congorilla and B’wana Beast
Every super powered monkey from the West to East
Monsieur Mallah and D’juba are both deceased
But we got ’em here anyhow

If you come down to Gorilla City
You know you’re bound to stay for more than one night
We got Detective Chimp, Sam Simian, and the Ultra-Humanite
We got Giganta and Titano
You know the kids are gonna bug you ’cause they just gotta go
To the only hidden city with an invisible dome
Unless you count Atlantis and Kandor
