All major items on my network are named after Toy Story characters. The family are big fans.

My DS411J is called Slinky...

I wanted to name it GLADos, but my wife couldn't remember it, and she didn't get HAL so ... NAS it is.

I rather like the name 'bitbucket'; however I think I will change the name of mine from 'diskstation' to 'TARDUS'. This name also fits for Mac users who use 'time machine'.

First I have to wait for my volume to build before I futz with things too much.

I was surprised to find "ohm" was still available as a QC ID. Gotta love those 3-4 character ID's! :mrgreen:

TARDIS, because it's bigger on the inside.

I've had four so far, and I've given them all five-letter
treasure-ish names:

1. Trove
2. Booty
3. Stash
4. Was going to be Hoard, but reused Trove.

I like the name Vault from about a page back.
