Have a laugh on me - name my computer too?

OK now guys - you need to hear some background and bear with me on this one - but I received an email from a client company that I Telnet into through a VPN connnection. And you need to be aware that I have a netwrok of three computers all of which might do this - the first was called "BOLLOX" (because it was the dogs wottsits when I had it then!) the next should have been called "PUPPY", (but got a boring name when Lord refromatted and installed Windows as a favour to me!) and my sig rig is called
"SEXYBITCH"
because I own it and consider the technology and nexus case "sexy"....

Now below - with details removed for obvious reasons is an email I receive the other day (remember this is over 12 MONTHS after I have been connecting with all these computers on a more or less daily basis!)....

Code:
[I]My name[/I]

We would certainly appreciate it if you would name your computer something other than “SEXYBITCH” if you are connecting to the [I][client name][/I] network via VPN.

 

Thank you.

[I]network personage[/I]
I was seriously grinning that day - but also somewhat challenged - I now need to think up three names that match up in a connected sense and with possibility of adding more (EG - Matthew, Mark, Luke - has option to add John)....

Apart from sharing in my warped humour at this incident - could you folks come up with some potential namings for my rigs? I do not want to make all these updates and have to change again - and I want something that retains my preference for character - oh year and I like Hunter S. Thompson and stuff and it can be a USA theme that is fine too....

all ideas that I like repped - even if they are not chosen!

C'mon and amaze me guys - I shared that real funny tale - so what can you suggest? :)

Great ideas are coming here - reps going out already - one point though, whatever name needs to be a starter for family of names (EG SexyHoe could then have BlackSpade and DigFork as parts of the set making up my "network"...) I guess catsarse could have tongue and paws, not sure there.... or even furball! Anyway - you get the idea. Keep 'em coming - and nice to hear I was not the only one with a computername of Bitch KCNY!

Could use real names. Here's my computer names:

Desktop = Caleb
Laptop = Cody
PDA = Cody-Jr
Webserver = Daryl
Dedicated Folding Machine = Dylan

I just dont see naming a computer a female name, I have no idea why. I will reserve female names to thing like a car or something.

OK, some REAL suggestions. :p

Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Moe

Leonardo, Donnatelo, Michaelangelo, Raphael

Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzy

Of course there's always the LoTR, Star Wars and Star Trek names for the geeky people. :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
