Name That Computer!


Competition is finished. The computer is named [Elftron], by [Hendercrazy]!


Illustrious Mayor [Hedda] has proclaimed that the Elftown computer (currently known as "The Computer that Runs Elftown") needs a new short, nice, fun, and interesting name. Thus, we proudly present the "Name That Computer" competition!


All members of Elftown are invited to partake in this competition. You do not need to possess any special artistic talents; however, a good clean wit is helpful.


The "Name That Computer" competition opens on Friday, January 23, 2004, and will run until Saturday, January 31, 2004.


1. All submissions must be in English.
2. The following characters are permitted: A-Z, a-z, _, and -
0-9 can be used after the first position. These are the ONLY characters allowed
3. All submissions must be your own original idea.
4. The name must be kept to a reasonable length. Use common sense here. [Hedda] will be referring to the ET computer by this name, and having a name composed of 27 syllables is not preferable.
5a. The name you create must be able to be pronounced.
5b. Do not message [Hedda] with every name you concoct asking "Can you pronounce this?" If you do, your chances of winning will be greatly diminished.
6. The Crew reserve the right to delete entries that are hateful, explicit, obscene, nasty, and the like...  without warning.
7. You ARE allowed to be creative, silly, fun, and interesting.
8. You are allowed as many entries as you can think of
9. A winner is selected by the Elftown and Elfwood crews in a snowball war conference.

Submitting Entries

1. When you submit an entry, you must do it in this format:

2004-01-24 [liiga]: *likes Heddazilla by [Paul Doyle] best!* : >

2004-01-24 [Davorah]: all of them were awesome! I thought some were really funny!!!

2004-01-24 [Calico Tiger]: Most of them need to read the rules, however ;) Many of the names won't work *points to the giant huge words at the "start submissions here" line

2004-01-24 [Athene Noctua]: Yeppers. ^^

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: Yeesh, waiting to modify the entries is almost as bad as waiting in line at the motor vehicles department

2004-01-24 [Calico Tiger]: Hehehe, yeah. This page seems to be rather popular ;)

2004-01-24 [Davorah]: lol! I was lucky when I posted mines, it was the leetle space in time when no one was adding or editing stuffs! YAY!

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: [Calico Tiger] Rather like the one with lots of shackles and chains and idiots ;-))))

2004-01-24 [Hedda]: Oupps! Sorry, people! 1234567890 is also allowed. Not in the beginning though.

2004-01-24 [True, plain and simple]: I wonder how many people actually know the name THEIR computer has..Mine's set to (My name)-(a bunch of random letters and numbers) because I didn't feel like putting anything else when I reformatted last time.

2004-01-24 [Lyndarsia]: Bwahahaha!

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: Damn those Talking Heads! One of my favorite groups, but, O.O *(can't get that video image of David Byrne twitching about onstage circa 1979 out of his head)*

2004-01-24 [True, plain and simple]: I didn't think you could use periods in server names... ? I assume we're physically naming it the chosen option, right?

2004-01-24 [Lyndarsia]: Didn't think so either. But it was one of the characters that are allowed. ^^

2004-01-24 [True, plain and simple]: Oh well ^^

2004-01-24 [Lyndarsia]: If it get's changed, I can easily change it to dashes. They work just as well. Bwah.

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: oh god i make a tiny spelling mistake and have to wait half an hour to fix it >_< theres such a thing as too popular... -_-;

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: take a number! *bings the service bell*

2004-01-24 [Valkyrion]: Is it a long wait to edit the page

2004-01-24 [Lerune]: I think Elftron is cute. =0) I feel like anything I could come up with would pale in comparison to what i already here! Some of these are fabulous!

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: [Valkyrion] (cocktail waitress) Beverage! Beverage! (walks by)

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: wtf? thanks oh so much Loron -_- it sure was nice of you to re-write our entries into your own....

2004-01-24 [Paul Doyle]: Loron, thou art a moron!

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: ooh hahaha Data_Smites hilarious! nice one [Hhoal] :P

2004-01-24 [Hedda]: The [Llevon]-edit seems like a mistake. He edited this page in a too long period of time. The diff-function invents similaries, and that has of course nothing to do with how the names was created.

2004-01-24 [Shade Wolf]: I'm going to suggest a name asap.

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: so why'd delete three entries? thats just daft

2004-01-24 [Shade Wolf]: I didn't. And if you are refering to Hedda whatch it! He's the Mayor of Elftown.

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: gah >_< why is everyone daft? i wasnt referring to you OR hedda being daft, i know hes the mayor, and HE was replying to a complaint that me and paul had reported about [Llevon] deleting entries. sheesh.

2004-01-24 [Kiddalee]: My stupid sister named our family computer Ireeeeeen. I don't know how to change it.

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: hahahahaha thats hilarious! hmmm how do you change it??? i wanna name mine now *snicker*

2004-01-24 [teptep]: there added some of mine.

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: where???

2004-01-24 [shudson]: people still can't seem to grasp that spaces are NOT allowed (neither are periods, apostrophes, question marks, exclamation marks, back slashes... etc)

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: oops *shame*.... hehe ok fixed

2004-01-24 [shudson]: This page is full and now locked with a password, please add new entries to More Names!

2004-01-24 [True, plain and simple]: This set of rules says periods are allowed. The new page has the correct rules.You can name your computer by going to Control Panel -> System -> Computer Name (Windows XP) -> Change. However, unless you have at least a small grasp on what you're doing, I'd suggest you don't. ;)

2004-01-24 [Kaimee]: well. seeings as iv managed to uninstall windows before... i think i wont muddle in things im far too inept to handle :P

2004-01-24 [Godsmightyhand]: Heart of Athena /Jeremiah Godsmightyhand

2004-01-24 [Hedda]: [True, plain and simple]> No, dots are not allowed. That is just the end of the sentence.

2004-01-24 [Davorah]: My comp is named Robyn...i wanna change it now....Thanks Hedda! *jots down more names to add to the new 2nd page*

2004-01-25 [Llevon]: Huh? Re-write entries? None of mine are yours...and i did NOT delete entries...not that i knew of. I edited twice, but i checked each time to make sure nothing happened to anyone else's entries. It all seemed to be allright. If something happened to your entries because of my edit, I appologize but i did NOT delete entries.

2004-01-25 [Walks By Faith]: Come on, guys! Get creative! What about names like 'Ed' and 'Curly' and 'Buttons'? What about simple single-letter names like 'Q' or 'M'? For Pete's sake, what ever happened to food names?! 'Oreo' and 'Bubblegum' and 'PopRock' are great! Sheesh, it's like nobody's even trying!

2004-01-25 [Athene Noctua]: You should try and name some then. ^^

2004-01-25 [Davorah]: Well you can go add them to the 2nd page of the contest...unless you don't mind someone using those ideas of your hmmm? o_O LOL!

2004-01-25 [Athene Noctua]: Hee hee!

2004-01-25 [Paul Doyle]: to [Walks By Faith]: I tried my hand at warped creativity . . .

2004-01-25 [Lucivar SaDiablo]: bugger, i've been trying to change the spaces but before it was protected to many people were editing...-shrugs- oh well....

2004-01-25 [True, plain and simple]: To [Hedda] : The rules were typed up differently before. They're fine now. =). || To [Lucivar SaDiablo] : Maybe they'll enter it anyway, with a dash or something, I suppose it depends on how nice they're feeling. Next time, read the rules though! =P

2004-01-25 [Panic Attack]: oops mistake...

2004-01-25 [Lucivar SaDiablo]: Yes, I know, I should read the rules more carefully..-shrugs- Oh well, alls well that ends well ^^

2004-02-12 [Pnelma Tirian]: owie.

2004-02-13 [Kiddalee]: Wouldn't that melt his throat? Or at least burn it? And then it would burn a hole in his stomach and he'd "eat himself" with the escaping stomach acid. **cackles evilly**
