Gadget Names

As a nerd, I’m fortunate to have a lot of gadgets in my life. Over the years, I’ve acquired cameras, speakers, tablets, Macs, network equipment, and an assortment of smart home devices. One of my favorite things to do is to give each of them a movie character name whenever possible. My wife, God bless her, puts up with my naming shenanigans and just indulges me with an eye roll and a grin. Here are some of my favorite device names. See if you can guess the movies I got the names from.

  • Mini-me
  • McLovin
  • Toothless
  • Black Widow
  • Morpheus
  • John Connor
  • Optimus Prime
  • Hit Girl
  • Jarvis
  • Lt. Dan
  • Gizmo
  • Jack Bauer
  • Maverick
  • Riggs and Murtaugh
  • Sullivan
  • Arlo

Let me know which ones you like or if you have a theme for naming of your gadgets.
