    I named my computer Chibi because 'Chibi' means small, or tiny in Japanese (refering to manga-style chibi art). And my computer is an Inspiron Mini (made by Dell). Since it was small, Chibi was practically the best name for it. :D

    Not Original But Appropriate

    I named my computer Hal after Hal9000 from 2001 A Space Odyssey fame. Very un-original I agree, but sometimes I think he's out to cut off my life support.

    Her Name Is Rosabelle :-)

    The other day, I was thinking about how my computer needed a name.  I knew she was female for sure.  I knew this because she's beautiful, wonderful, sleek, and sexy; yet very often, she'll PMS and freak out for no good reason. So I asked my friend ChevyGirl about it...

    Several Names

    For my laptop...the 1st time, I named him Severus. But then I named him Metatron (same name as my journal). Because I TOTALLY don't love Alan Rickman. XD For my regular computer, though...as of now, I'm naming her Shelley. Or Lola. It'll most likely change several more times...
