    I've had a HOLLY before, most of mine have been named after famous computers. HAL, MCP (Tron), M5 (star trek), Skynet, and The Ultimate Computer (superman 3).

    Desktop is 'Thor'. A laptop that I got given and that I've been fixing up slowly but surely is 'craptop'.

    Desktop is 'Alpha', although it's so outdated now I should probably rename it Beta. The laptop is 'Moonunit Zappa'.

    The hard drives in the desktop are all named for Father Ted characters, Ted, Jack, Mrs Doyle and Dougal.
