Whatever you do, don't name them after comedians. I once worked at a company that had servers named Larry, Moe, Curly, etc. Same goes for Star Trek. When the old sysadmin left, and the new sysadmin came in, the servers became Picard, Worf, and so forth. (If we happened to have exactly 9 servers, it would have been pretty cool to have a Seven of Nine, but no dice) Oh well.
There's nothing wrong with naming the arbitrarily either... A, B, C, etc
At my former company, we named our machines after fruit names. It worked very well. At home, I name my machines after Mega Man X characters, but that would most likely not work for you... If I had to choose names for machines for a company it would most definitely be about fruits or stars
