One well-known cell uses 'vice'.
My fileservers are apple, cranberry, grape, tomato, orange, date, fig,
plum, apricot, cherry, strawberry, pumpkin, kiwi.
Another cell I know has servers named ronald-ann, rosebud, and reynelda
(with aliases ra, rb, and rc).

penn.central.org, blueberry.srv.cs.cmu.edu, grand-opening.mit.edu, and
