I worked for an American company that was doing a joint project with several Japanese companies. The project name was named Orion. I had to name about 25 unix workstations. The first names I thought of were Rigel and Betelgeuse. I named all of the workstations after stars. Polaris, Arcturus, Antares..etc My favorite was Electra. The Japanese were very pleased with the names. My own workstation has always been named nitro. I never know if it will blow up or run fast like nitro powered dragsters.
