For my OpenVMS systems they're typically taken from the "Doc Savage" books.
I've got systems such as; DOC, SAVAGE, RENNY, LNGTOM, HAM, and MONK. For my
main non-VMS systems I've been using various mythological gods such as odin,
zeus, and apollo. Some systems that I rarely use get what they are for the
system name, such as 'next' or 'dualxeon'. Of course my SGI O2/270 is a bit
obvious, I had to call him Erwin :^) just like my Amiga 3000 is 'amy' (those
two are a bit to predictable).
