One other suggestion.

We have a production server platform, acceptance and integration
platform, and an office network.
The production servers are named after animals (monkey=hosted exchange,
Our acceptance platform has car brand names (isuzu=exchange,
Integration platform has inventor names (like newton, doppler, wahl).
Our office servers have planet names (earth. Pluto, jupiter).....

And then there is our Tivoli management platform. Since it's working
like a bitch, we decided to give it pig names (potbelly, warthog,
wildboar, swine).

Yeah, this works well, I use an astronomy theme for our servers. Lagrange is a router, Mercury is email, Mars is the database, etc.
