Host naming convention

Found two interesting you can see them here and here. Both talk about the convention used by people for the naming of hosts. Something I have also been long interested in. What can I say, geeks think about this stuff from time to time.

For the last few years I have adopted to name our hosts at home after the names of Simpson Characters, and sometimes that of precious stones. Currently I have barney, maggie, marge, abu and topaz.
