What did you name your Pinebook Pro?

I tend to prefer very short names so I went with "yan" (岩) which means "rock/crag". I thought it was fairly fitting.

I did almost name it V'ger, but it didn't feel appropriate enough. :p

I am toying with the idea of naming my PBP alterkocker -- it's Yiddish, Google it -- after me. That would make it sort of a cyber-mini-me. I will, however, have to consult my wife (who is burdened with the task of monitoring my mental competence on an ongoing basis).

I have most of my machines named for references to James Brown songs or more recently, to David Bowie songs and albums.
I suspect when mine arrives, I can break from this pseudo-convention.

I'm leaning towards "Perkins" after Pinetop Perkins, or the more oblique "TheFjords" ;-)
