    Well, at home I usually use the name of the room the computer is in + "COMPUTER" or a slight variation on that.

    When I worked in the local university they had a naming system which was like this:

    DEPARTMENT + "PC" + NUMBER

    e.g.

    GEOPC123

    Would be:

    Computer 123 in the Geography department.

    At my school they have a slightly more elaborate system which is like this:

    ROOM + "-" + MAKE + "-PC" + NUMBER

    e.g.

    M4-DELL-PC12

    Would be:

    Computer 12 sold as a Dell, in the room M4.

    I prefer the way the university does it.
