Once you spend enough time with servers, sysadmin and making sense of it, eventually you try to find a consistent naming scheme for hostnames and such.
Lurkfriends, what's your system for coming up with server names?
Over here, the hostnames for our laptops and other computers are drawn from the list of cousins from the Katamari Damacy series: https://katamari.fandom.com/wiki/Cousins
