Do you give your PC or Smartphone (or printer etc) a name?

Like: I called my Laptop "Momo" (Reference: Michael Ende, I never read nor watched it but I liked the drawing style)

And my Phone "Ori" (Reference: Ori & the blind Forest, I never played it, only saw a some gameplay)

    All my computers (PC or laptops) have or had names. In part because when I install Linux it asks for one and then I got it as a habit.

    My work PC is called Chloe (Uncharted series) and my home laptop is called Kitana (MK series).

    I've had Amanda, Agustina, Zelda, Ling-Yi...

    Computers yes, I have Charles (named for professor Xavier), GlaDOS (portal of course)I, and Darwin (because it's a more evolved form of the GlaDOS laptop). My work computer is grossmac because I've always disliked apple. I haven't named a phone in a while.

    I started naming all my devices with names taken from former and current players of VfB Stuttgart :) It's a lot of fun when a new device comes up and you have to think of matching characteristics of those players, for example my printer is called "hitzlsperger" because he is the only player of which i'm sure he knows the whole alphabet :P

    My little brother started naming his computers (and servers) after muppets, so I joined in. I now have elmo, kermit and waldorf 😀

    Not really names here, just a description of what they are. So my desktop is my desktop, laptop is laptop, Acer phone is acer (or android, still haven't fully worked out the naming for my Androids yet), tablet is tablet, Thinkstation is thinkstation, mx1 and mx2 are just that, ...
    When you have a lot of machines to take care of and use SSH quite often between them, having a descriptive name of the device you're currently working on makes management just a little bit easier.
