Geeky Pet Names

So this all started when Urmi mentioned someone she read about in the latest issue of wired who had named their dog MOSFET (Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor). The cool thing about this name is that it's geeky, but actually sounds like a reasonable dog name, especially if sounded out rather than spelled. But it got me thinking about other, equally geeky pet names. Here's a few that I was able to come up with. If you don't get these, all that means is that you are not a CS geek.
  • A Python named PERL
  • BIOS the Hermit Crab (always switching shells)
  • Segmentation Fault the cat
  • A dog named GDB (chases the cat)

I'm sure there are plenty more potentials out there, but these were a few good ones I was able to come up with on short notice. Add more in the comments!
