I don't know, but I think a good name for a server would be "Chidori", which is a reference to Full Metal Panic. Why her? Well, because in the series, she had a bunch of dat ain her head. :P

Just thought it was clever.

In that vein of thought, there's "Ein". The data dog.

. if your looking for Earth's greatest attibute, it would be "air" and I can't
think of anything which would be more unique to the Earth than its AIR.

That notwithstanding, having a server called 'Aes Sedai' would be mondo cool for a very small amount of people :p

If you're just making up names, then call it Jiieden, because it sounds nice, and in a fantasy book that I know of, means something similar to ' Servant of Gaia'.

Atlas, maybe (Greek)?

Although, I'm not sure there has to be any relation between Nago #2 and Kuno #2. Previously, we (Phade and I) had just been naming machines after characters in series both of us had seen. That was a very narrow intersection (I think it was Mononoke and Ranma when we named Yuri, maybe Kiki's Delivery Service as well, now we could add CCS), and Yuri wound up being named from something Phade hadn't seen (Dirty Pair Flash).

But what we still do have are names from different character groups:
Nago - nature spirit
Kuno - man
Yuri - woman
All are both important characters from well-known anime. (Nago is the boar that becomes Tatari Gami/cursed god and injures whats-his-name, starting off Mononoke).

I think it might be nice to continue using different character groups. These come to mind:
Alien - e.g., Rei (from UY), though he's fairly man-like...
Monster - e.g., Gaav (from Slayers), though man-like too...
Giant Robot - don't watch these.
Stuffed Animal - Kero (CCS), Pokota (Hime-chan's Ribbon)

Of course, Kuno's and Nago's names don't really have any real relationship...

Phade.


In that case, we can call it 'Gabriel'. :wink:

If not, then I say we go with mine and Mav's suggestion of HAL :)

I hate the name "gaia" with a passion for personal reasons but I won't object to the name for the server. :?

Well, in an effort to ignore all input, the server is now called 'Kero' because, as Phade put it, "[p]lus, it's syrup. :-)"
