Slideshare server names

Today, Slideshare was Techcrunched but that isn’t why I am blogging about this. I was going through their company Blog and i found something really interesting – the names of their servers are named after Bollywood heroines – so for example,

“Ash is a Pentium 4 machine with 2 Gigs of RAM, and is used as a web server. She won Miss World in 1994, and is often referred to as the “Queen of Bollywood”. ” ;-)

This is a refreshing shift in trend from the days when servers were named after rivers (Nile, Mississipi, Ganga etc) or Emotions (Happiness, Passion etc) or famous scientists (Newton, Einstein etc).

Do you know of any other innovative nomenaclature for servers? – write in.

Cheers,
Thyaga
