Anyone ever run out of names?
Sounds strange, but I did. I always gave my stuff human names, and since I insist upon unique ones, all the really good ones eventually all got taken...
So eventually I went to -last names- (sorta like increasing the memory storage capacity of a computer by going from 16 bit addresses to 32 bit addresses, etc, etc LOL).
I basically just reserved three last names for anything I created, or any tangible instance of anything I owned, and created slews of other ones each for naming things falling into a given category... Problem solved.
A funny quote (actually a rule I used) came out of the project:
"Names themselves are typically named after themselves" :-D
(so in other words, the name 'Julie' herself would almost be guaranteed to be named "Julie" followed by some appropriate Last name :-D).
